My son takes his first step into a larger world…
One of our friends here in Jacksonville is a member of the 501st Star Wars costuming group. They were having a fund raiser at a Chik-fil-A here in town this past weekend so Steph and I took PJ down to see all the costumes. Here is PJ just after meeting his first Stormtrooper (or, technically, a Sandtrooper).
PJ was not too sure about the man in the scary costume at first. You can see he’s a little concerned in this picture. However, after about 10 minutes he became somewhat fascinated by all the costumes. Even going so far as to grab the Stormtrooper’s gloved finger and shake it. It was a lot of fun.
What made it even more fun was the fact that I got to see a Tusken Raider think it was a good idea to climb into a Jump Castle with like 15 kids. He came to regret that decision.
