This weekend, we made an impromptu trip to Kansas City to see the Batman Tumbler and Batpod on it's cross-country tour.  They are bringing out the actual, working movie props to promote the July 20th release of Batman: Dark Knight Rises.  (And, yes, I'm sure we'll be seeing that one at a midnight premier.)  In all of my dorky-mom glory, I dressed my boys up in their best Batman gear for the event. :)  As expected, we were not the only dorks in attendance.  Actually, the event was very well attended.  And even I was impressed with the sheer SIZE of the Tumbler.  We took a lot of pictures with the Tumbler and then decided to come back later in the day to watch them drive the Tumbler back onto the truck trailer.  Now... I have to admit that I was a little reluctant to come back to the event just to see a car move -- but it turned out to be really cool.  It has the loud, roaring engine you would expect and then a wimpy little horn (beep, beep).  :)  I have a video on my phone which I will try to upload soon.  Anyways, here are my pictures of Batmania weekend...

To prove that I was there too...

TOUCHING the huge Tumbler tires -- just before security shooed us away! 


  1. Those are hilarious! Love the Batman PJ's although this one may not fall under nerdy mom category more so nerdy wife! Kind of like my Advengers obsession ;)

  2. What a thrill that was for our son ~ and his sons, too. Sounds like you had a good weekend. Love the pics!
