Wicked West Expo Was a Success!

Nick and the Awesome in Action Team had so much fun at Wicked West Comic Expo at the Budweiser Event Center on April 2nd and 3rd, 2022.

There were so many fun opportunities to help kids discover their inner superheroes, and see their super cute masks.

Nick was so excited to set up his booth the night before the Expo, and showing it off the 1st day!

Adrian and Camila are super cool!

Some of the kids really embraced their inner superheroes with cool handmade masks!

Evie strikes her most super pose with her Dad!

The Sommerfeld Family were like herding a group of super cats! Look how cool their masks are!

Nick loved talking with everyone who stopped at his booth about his business, and his theme for the Expo; Anyone Can Be a Hero!

Nick and his job coach Liz had fun dressing up too!

New Friends

It wasn’t all hard work though, Nick also got the chance to have some fun meeting Lucy the Velociraptor, Doctor Robotnik, and Rocket Raccoon! Nick was a little scared of some of the costumes at the Expo, but he was brave and put on his mask to become his super alter-ego, Captain Laughs a Lot!

Old Friends

Nick got the chance to see his friend Nick Armstrong, who heads Fort Collins Comic Con, coming to Fort Collins August 27th and 28th!

He also ran into his old friend, Mary Poppins, and had to take her home!

We hope you can join us again really soon at the Fort Collins Comic Con!

Until then….as Spiderman says: “With great power, comes great responsibility!” Sir Laughs a Lot MUST press on with his Ability Awareness and keep our community safe (and well educated!)

~ Swoosh!~

Happy Holidays from Awesome in Action!

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and remembering how important connections with each other are. Nick’s favorite holiday is Christmas, because he loves giving gifts to those he loves and spending time with the people he cares most about.

Because Nick is vaccinated, he felt comfortable shopping for gifts in person this year. He was so excited to go to various stores and pick out fun or meaningful presents for his friends and family. He also found some very interesting items while shopping, like this Niffler at Barnes and Noble or this shark hand puppet at Kohl’s!

Shopping at Kohl’s is always an adventure!

One of Nick’s favorite activities during the holidays is making treats for his friends and family and decorating Gingerbread men or houses (or trains)!

Uh oh, Mistletoe!
You have to make treats for the holidays!

Nick loves spending time making and decorating cookies every year with Audrey and her family! This is one of his favorite things to do all year!

Audrey, Debbie, Thalia and Olivia are great cookie decorators!

And of course, you can’t forget how much fun it is to decorate the house for the holidays!

Hanging the stocking!

However you celebrate the holidays, Nick hopes you spend the season reflecting on the most important things in your life. From Nick and everyone on the Awesome in Action team, we wish you all the best and hope we start 2022 with an AWESOME attitude and lots of opportunities for connection and cheer.
