From Left Field: Embrace your inner nerd

On Saturday we packed the car (my girlfriend, her son and my daughter) and ventured to Dubuque for the annual DBQ Con, which is basically a comic convention. From the scenic drive that gets better every time (I especially love the Benton to Dubuque stretch), to the final exit a few hours later, it was an awesome day. No one in our party dressed up, though I did have my daughter wear her Chewbacca hoodie, but the quantity (and quality) of cosplayers was formidable to the ratio of attendees.
