Home stretch!

Kimmi and I are already planning to make it to Comic Con again next year. It was so amazing. Easily the highlight of our trip. Being surrounded by like-minded geeks is very refreshing. We saw so many amazing panels. My favorites were Being Human, Joss Whedon and Psych. Watching Doctor Who with a bunch of people who love the show as much as we did was also so much fun! Everyone cheered during all of the good parts. The lines were really long, but once we got the hang of it, it wasn't so bad. There's definitely a science to it, and you have to be willing to sit through some things you're not interested in to get to the good stuff.

Of course, next year we'll be flying instead of driving. I think Kimmi and I both agree that driving back and forth through the mountains once was enough. I would have loved extra time in San Diego, which is a gorgeous city. The weather was perfect - I think that maybe it hit 75 degrees, at the max. For the most part, it was in the upper 60s. I would totally live in San Diego. The whole town seems to completely shut down during Comic Con. There are SO MANY people milling around, and so many closed streets. I feel bad for the people who had to try and drive to work in the middle of that cluster.

I want to dress up in something super geeky but low maintenance. We have a whole year to plan it!

We're in Las Vegas now. The Paris is beautiful! We were going to eat at the Eiffel Tower restaurant, but decided on a steakhouse instead. It was really good, though the man sitting next to us was horrible and loud. We had fun dressing up and gambling.

Tomorrow we have a long drive back to Eagle, Colorado. This is basically the end of our trip, and it has been a great one. I got so many pictures to remember it by.
