Well, today Jeff and I leave for San Diego, and I’m bursting at the seams with excitement as we head toward ComicCon! I couldn’t help but reminisce of all the fun times I’ve had in years past, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite memories.

    I’m jealous that you’re there. We can’t make it this year because of the new kid, but next year… These are such fun pictures! It’s great that you have so many memories there, and I love that you make it a family tradition. Have an awesome time!
