superhero comes to life

The whole time we have been here at the resort, there has been this muscle guy that has been walking around.  He stands out because he is not only muscular, but really tall. 

Emily spotted him and said he looked like Captain America.  So, a few days ago he was in the pool and we swam over to him so she could say hi. 

I wasn't sure how he would respond.  Maybe he would be annoyed that we were bugging him.  But, he was really friendly with her.  She was more than excited to meet him.

Everyday since, he has been saying hi to her as he walks by, sometimes stopping and chatting with her.  The look on her face has been priceless.

Yesterday, I had my camera with me and we snapped a few pictures of him and her together.  (His real name is Thomas.)  Just take a look at her face.





Then, last night, we were walking through the main lobby area of the resort and we spot a guy in a costume.  A closer look reveals that it is Thomas, dressed in a Captain America suit.  He said that he had to find a costume for her since she claimed he was Captain America. 



I still can't get over how sweet that was of him.
