I wish I had thought to take pictures, but, oh well. There were some people shooting free t-shirts from the t-shirt guns and Andrew was seriously trying to get one. Of course, there were 100s of people there and the big kids get a little crazy. I remember those days! I was all about freebie shirts, too. Jason was even out in the crowd trying to score one!
The movie, Cars 2, started around 8:15 and it was kind of weird. And, not in a good way. Cars was a great movie, had great music and even a great message. But, Cars 2 - oh, no. We had to add in KILLING other cars and some crap about oil companies versus going green. UGH! Can we just watch a cute movie, people?! I'm not asking for rainbows and frills here. Kids DO NOT CARE about what the cars are using during their race. They just want to watch a cartoon while we parents get to enjoy something that is a bit better than Sesame Street, ok? We never asked for our 2 year old to watch Rambo or Alien...we want good movies. There. I said it. Kind of. Disney sucks at the moment for me. I'm not a happy parent.
But on a good note, Andrew and Alex understood that we had to leave when the bad car was not being nice (whoever the bad guy is...he was "torturing" one car - by making him drive super fast on a treadmill and shooting some laser at him while saying that he was going to kill another car if he didn't give in to whatever bologna...so lame. I bet Walt is turning over in in grave...). He was sad, but he said ok and asked for a goody. Yes, baby :)
Note to self: Check out the reviews BEFORE dragging everyone to the park.
Eh, they played on the playground and had a great time, right? No one has asked to watch Cars either - yet. We will try again next time, guys :)
