The Weirdlings were born into a nerdy family. One of my favorite movies is Pacific Rim. I'm not alone, as it turns out. Pacific Rim has enough fans that a group of people got together are created Shatterdome Seattle, a fan-created convention specifically about the movie. As soon as I saw this existed we planned out trip and bought tickets. Sure, it's a ten-hour drive, but Seattle means seeing wife's family. It also meant that our great friend Grace and her son Oliver could fly in and come with. Grace is also a super nerd, you see.
Angela made the boys cute little onsies, I put together a costume for myself and so did Grace, we rented a giant van to fit three adults and three tiny humans, and we were ready for the big drop.
