We were invited to a big fat Greek wedding!

My friend’s daugher married into a Greek family.  I heard a Greek wedding
can take up to 3 hours, but his one was only 1 hour 15 minutes.

It was…. interesting.


This is a close-up of their get-a-way car.


The reception was at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.

It was beautiful.


The happy couple arrives to wild applause.


My friend dancing with he daughter.

It was a beaufitul princess wedding.

Even an evil dryder is no match for Little Lady.

She went to a fiction writing workshop at Gen Con, then
we all walked the exhibition hall.


These people created a Lego/Mindstorm version of the boardgame
Robo Rally.  (each Lego figure is controlled by a computer)

After hitting an honest to goodness double in his first baseball game,
Little Man and I went to Gen Con.

He likes this booth, where you can buy individual Lego figures.


Little Man is in front of Cardhalla.

Volunteers spend days creating a huge card city.  At 10:30pm on Saturday,
people are allowed to throw coins at the city.  The coins are then donated to


The winner of this charity event got to pop this balloon dragon.


Little Man and I played “Redneck Life”.  He finished the
game with 17 teeth and 15 young’ins.


Walking out of Gen Con… Little Man and I ran into hundreds of bikers
in town for the Moto GP.

It was quite a culture shock going from Gen Con to bikerworld!
