|Patriotic for the 4th of July?|
The family and I went to San Diego, California after a short one night stop in Phoenix. While in Phoenix, we visited an old friend and had a chance to catch up. After that it was off to Cali to bask in the sun and do touristy stuff. I visited Game Empire in San Diego to play an FNM draft and to check out their great 40k displays. My pictures of the Golden Demon armies on display at the store were rubbish so I decided not to post them. Oh well. I also visited Villainous Lair, a fantastic comic shop. I picked up a copy of Sanctus Reach: Hour of the Wolf in hardback, as well as another Weirdboy model (on sale!). Game Empire had all sorts of discounted GW product, including Voidraven Bombers for 40% off, which is proof that rules matter.
After my nerd side quests, we spent time at the beach and we went to both Lego-land and Disney California Adventure, which is right next to old school Disneyland. My son had a blast at both parks and truth be told, so did I. I had never been to either of those places before and I was absolutely amazed.

Big things for me hobby-wise as well. My FLGS is holding a summer league with escalating points. The goal is to get players into new armies so the store donated a troop box and a dedicated transport to each player! I ended up with two troop boxes since I decided to run Chaos Demons. Now I can actually have the models to summon for my Ork list. We have 15 players in the league which is a great turn out. Week one we ran 200 point kill teams, and I had the most fun playing 40k that I have had in a while. One of the goals is to have the donated portion fully painted by the end of the six week league. You cannot qualify for top prizes without your army being painted. So I put away the green paint and started getting down with pink.

I also managed to knock out a piece of terrain. I used some packaging material to make some sort of bunker thing.
