Happy 80th Birthday, Batman!

Saturday was the day that Warner Brothers/DC Comics had designated as “Batman Day.”  The character has been around 80 years – his debut issue was in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939.  I don’t know why we’re now celebrating in September, but I don’t make the rules.

As far as Tad was concerned, this was on par with a national holiday, and we needed to celebrate.  The best I could do was stopping at our local Barnes & Noble to partake in their (admittedly cheesy) Batman Day activities.  Which means there were coloring pages, sticker sheets, and a photo backdrop that you could pose with.

The two older boys took this very seriously.

Thumper… not so much.

Yeah, he’s not really into the whole “dark and tortured soul” bit.  Not his thing.  He’s more of a LEGO Batman Movie fan.
