Fun at the movies!

Little Elvis has been counting down the days to Cars 2 for several weeks now.

Added to his excitement was his chance to go see the movie in another town -- one with a Target. Yes, our child loves Target.

One of my mom's best friends from elementary school is a State Farm insurance agent. And State Farm has an ad campaign with Cars 2. (Mater even says, "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there." in the movie!)

My mom's friend rented out a theatre in the "big city" to do a screening, and we got to go watch the movie in the bright lights of the bigger locale! Little Elvis got to pose with Lightning McQueen on the big morning. He also got a cool t-shirt, and played hide-and-seek with the Good Neighbear. While Little Elvis liked Mater in the new movie, Finn McMissile is now the coolest car ever.
After the movie, we went back to my mom's friend's office to drop off some supplies. And to get Baby Plum to pose with a stuffed Good Neighbear.
Little Elvis attempted to snarl with the real Elvis.

We all had so much fun! The movie was fun, and completely different from the first Cars. I guess it was more violent, but Little Elvis didn't seem to pick up on it.

Baby Plum handled his first movie experience very well. He slept for the first hour, drank a whole lot of fruit punch for the second half, and started humming right at the end. It was a quiet hum, but Bob and I enjoyed it.

And Little Elvis spent all of his dollars at Target. We once again realized the futility of explaining bargain-hunting to our Pixar-loving child. He had money, and he wanted Cars 2 cars.
