Super hero day
How can you not love this costume?
The Star Wars shirt with the knight's mask and a cape that I'm pretty sure was made to look like dragon scales. Great.
Rye is in super hero mode right now, and I must say I'm liking that better than the Star Wars fascination that came before. He still likes Star Wars, he tells me, but just not as much. At least all those action figures won't go the way of the Thomas the Tank Engine trains just yet.
So never the one to deny anyone their object of obsession, I suggested we go to "Super Hero Day" at the Lincoln Children's Museum yesterday.
The coolest characters there weren't Batman or Spiderman. They were the Storm Troopers from Star Wars. They looked so real, they were almost intimidating.
The place was crazy, of course, filled with kids dressed up like their own version of Superman and Batman. Little caped crusaders running recklessly everywhere.
We were there about two hours and that was plenty for me. Rye said several times afterward how much fun he had. So that made the effort worth it.
We ate at Valentino's beforehand:
