Had a lovely weekend in Philly going to Wizard World and seeing Mom.
We drove up Friday night and made excellent time. We had to bring the cats with us because the last time we left them home they left gifts of their annoyance for our cat sitter, so we just bring them with us now. They don't seem to mind the drive, and rather enjoy exploring Grandma's house.
Saturday we got up early and headed into Philly for Wizard World at the convention center (which was my first time there, actually, as I had moved to San Diego before the Millenium Philcon, and before they tore down the old Radisson and Philcon had to move).
