6/24/11: Big Wheels at the Library and Cars 2!!!!

 We had a busy day today.  It started out with this morning going to the Wilmington Library for the Big Wheels event.  This is a great event, but due to "Day Out With Thomas" falling on the same day as this each year, we could never attend.  This year Edaville cancelled this event so we could go.  You can see the difference from when we went in 2008 here.  While we were there we met up with a friend and then had a playdate and their house which was fun.  The kids painted bird houses and clip boards that became frames.  Very cool.  And being how anal I am about painting in the house, I kept close eye with paper towels in hand.

 And of course Lauren is always posing.

 The police cars were a big hit.

In the Fire Truck.  As you may remember Evan wants to be a Fire Fighter and had two birthday parties at the Fire Station, so this is always a hit for him.
 As if that wasn't enought, we of course had to go to opening night for the much anticipated Cars 2!  We went to see it at the IMAX theatre in Jordan's Furniture.  It was really cool to feel the rumble in the seat, have the movie on a huge screen and be in 3D.  It sold out the 500 seat theatre.  I could have possibly been more excited than the kids to see it.
 I don't want to give much away, but we did like the movie, Evan was giggling away during it too.  John liked the original more, I say they are very hard to compare as they were so different.  I did also enjoy the Toy Story short at the beginning, it was hysterical.
What a way to start off Summer vacation, despite the misty weather!
