For those who don't know, our DS11 is an Aspie who's been obsessed with Godzilla and Japanese movie monsters since he was about six.

This past weekend we drove from DC to Chicago to make his dream of attending the big Godzilla Convention come true.

Seeing him connect with so many people who shared his obsession was blissful.

Here's a link (https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/110250399426572243636/albums/5900915800580490097) to the photo album from our trip. I tried to document the trip in the picture details.

Those pics are awesome, Mum! I can't imagine his excitement; I'm sure he was right in his element. Love his raised hand (straight up--you can just sense the eagerness!) in a class full of adults. Love!! :)

What an awesome trip! And I'm not surprised at all you won 2nd prize for costume, that was incredible.

Definitely made awesome memories that he'll carry with him through adulthood. Can't ask for more than that. Well, okay, a second place trophy is a nice touch, too. :)

Fan-freakin-tastic, Mum. Congrats to your boy! Godzilla and friends are the bomb. And what a super cutie your son is! Can we discuss an arranged marriage? Mermaid is into, well, mermaids, but I have made sure to expose her to the essentials of Godzilla. :)

He's sworn himself to bachelorhood for the last few years. Something about kids and a wife seeming like too much trouble. LOL. I'll let you know if he changes his mind. A girl with Godzilla love
might win him over. :o
