....Meeting her idol.


One of the neatest things that went down at the show, was Hailey's chance to meet her imaginary friend and schoolgirl crush, Sean Astin. Ever since she saw ENCINO MAN a few years ago, David (the character her played in the movie), or Daven, as her young developing speech would say, has been her security blanket.
She plays with him, works with him, is married to him, etc.
So for months she was looking forward to meeting him. He was at the show! So 30 bucks, and a half an hour in line later, my baby got to meet him. He was a great guy, and seemed very humble. Hailey was a bit star-struck and gooey, but could not be happier!
That in itself made MEGACON entirely worthwhile.

Thank you so much for the lovely pic and story. WSean is SO good with kids!

Thank you for your kind words about him as well. Would you mind if I use your little write up in my Sean scrapbook, with credit, of course?

Hugs,
Rach

Did you ask him what's the only way to cook a brace of coneys?
