Our sweet Fletcher, though he says he isn’t afraid of anything, sometimes shies away from costumed characters. Santa Claus is ok, but Gnate the Gnat at the Sand Gnats games? Forget it. So when friends invited him to join them at Party City to meet Spiderman, I wasn’t entirely sure how it was going to go.
I needn’t have worried! Fletcher was on top of the world. Totally star struck. He came home with an autograph card and kept saying “I just can’t believe I really met him!”
Fortunately Jessica and Anthony took plenty of photos and video to document the event. I couldn’t help but giggle when I saw them, and remember the time we took tiny 2 year old Fletcher to ride on Thomas the Tank Engine. When he saw Thomas, he had this sort of bewildered, stunned look on his face like he just couldn’t believe his eyes. Almost 5 years later, that expression hasn’t changed much. And I love that.
