It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s……

SUPERMAN!
Saturday, we went on a mini family getaway to Metropolis, Illinois for the annual Superman Festival! Doug is a HUGE Superman fan. He loves Superman like I love Wolverine. And Norman Reedus. The kids are superhero nerds, too.

We were all so excited for this trip! It was a little rough on me because of the medication I’m taking for a kidney infection, but I toughed it out as best as I could. It was so exciting to see all of the other Superhero fans out there!

The weather wasn’t too bad either. Yes, it was warm, but I know it could’ve been worse lol.
We saw all sorts of costumes at the festival.

Doug and I almost got attacked by a zombie, but Rick saved us. (Even though Rick looked more like Shane).
And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you might want to start watching the best show on AMC…The Walking Dead.

I think Doug enjoyed himself a little much…

After meeting and greeting, we went through the Superman Museum.
It had tons of historic Superman novelties.

Overall, it was a fun experience. Next year, we will be better prepared (and hopefully I won’t be on medication) and we will do a little more.
We ended up in Murray, KY to meet up with some friends for lunch. Chinese, duh. The kids ate very nutritiously….

To end the night, we watched a movie as a family. Guess which one we watched?
You guessed it, Superman Returns.

Adorable. I didn't even know they had a Superman Festival, not that I live up there. That is really cool.
Also, I hope you feel better!

Thanks for linking up with Weekend Reads.
