I am a huge Marvel fan, and have seen each one of the movies that lead up to Iron Man 3. Each member of my family has a favorite movie and character they identify with.
Mason is a HUGE Captain America fan, and you can see that Jakobi loves the Incredible Hulk! My kids dress up in these costumes and play Super Heros all the time.
Even though they love the Incredible Hulk & Captain America, their first love was Iron Man. Mine still is! It must have something to do with Robert Downey Jr. or something I am sure! The first Iron Man movie was Ah-May-Zing and was the first film we ever took Jakobi to see in the theater. We all fell instantly in love and did not believe the movie could ever be topped. Oh were we wrong. I love how each Marvel movie ties into all of the other movies. It also makes for a great movie marathon night!
Each birthday the boys have had has involved, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk & Captain America so that alone brings a flood of happy memories to mind. However this year, the Iron Man 3 Red Carpet Premiere lands on MY 40th birthday! Holy cow exciting! I get to be with my favorite bloggers and best friends and go out on the town in LA.
