Good morning, blog readers! Once again, I must apologize for not posting in a timely manner. Though I must say that we are finally over our colds, it just means that we must catch up on all of the house work that didn’t get done while we were sick. Which was quite a bit…
Anyway, I’d like to get right to the crux of this blog. My weekend! I’m not sure if any of you know, but I am a huge fangirl when it comes to science fiction. I grew up watching Star Trek TNG, Red Dwarf, and super hero movies, as well as playing video games to try to keep up with my brother and my dad. Needless to say, this has seeped into my adult life. I am a very big fan of shows like Dr. Who, Sherlock, and Firefly (so sad it was only on for one season!), and films like the Star Wars and Avengers series’. It was for that reason that this weekend was one of the best ever.
This weekend, my husband and I (and our oldest two sons on Saturday) went to Fan Expo Canada. It is a “comic con” of sorts for us Canadians. Let me just pop out a few names that were on the celebrity guest list… William Shatner (Captain Kirk – Star Trek), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia – Star Wars), Brent Spiner (Data – Star Trek TNG), and John Barrowman (Captain Jack – Dr. Who). *Fangirl Squeal* Yes. It was a wonderful turnout. Now, while I could drone on about how much I love these celebrities, I think I will just share some of my favourite photos. (No, I didn’t get one with Shatner or Fisher. Couldn’t get close enough and it cost too much to get photos with them.) Alas, here are my photos:
This is Middle Son (4yo) getting a hug from Elmo. He was so excited!
This is John Barrowman making a joke while signing my husband’s Time-Vortex Manipulator.
This was our signed photograph from Brent Spiner.
This is a photo from John Barrowman’s Q&A. Funniest thing I’d ever been to – and the highlight of the weekend.
Hubby and I waiting in our seats for Brent Spiner’s Q&A.
Brent Spiner in his Q&A. He was much more amusing than I expected.
Some cool cosplayers. Mario Swat and Princess Peach Medic.
The back of my head as I took a photo of some storm troopers and Chewbacca.

One of our signatures from John Barrowman. It’s a metal replica of the sign on the T.A.R.D.I.S. from Dr. Who.
Another autograph from John Barrowman (aka Captain Jack from Dr. Who).
Oldest Son (dressed as a Clone Wars storm trooper) with a couple of storm troopers.
With Elsa and Belle. Middle Son was too shy to be in this photo.

The crowds at the Fan Expo. This was the mild turnout of the first day.
