I eat losers for breakfast...

Once upon a time, Macy was obsessed with the movie Cars. We watched it over and over and over and over and over. She had a Cars birthday theme for her 5th birthday where we watched the movie, ate popcorn, and made Cars keychains. So when I heard that the actual cars from the movie would be town yesterday only, I started scrambling to figure out a way to take them. I found out about noon, and it closed at 6. Lots of juggling, but we arrived at 5:55. I was watching Jesse's two girls last night, and the Mulkey family came with us.

 Here they are with Lightning McQueen himself.
And Tow Mater. My favorite line of his from the movie? "I'm as happy as a tornado in a trailer park!"

And my favorite car...Sally the sweet-talking Porsche.

It was all over by 6:15 and we were back inside Crown Center where we played around for a while then headed home. It was crazy by the cars--see the black rope in front of the cars? Obviously there for a reason. I was shocked to see little kids moving the black rope, and leaning on the cars, hitting them, etc. Seriously? What kind of parent lets that happen?

It was a crazy thing to do on a weeknight when I had 2 extra kids in tow, just for a 10 minute photo opp with cars, but I love building memories with the girls. Surely this is one they will remember!

**Excuse the picture quality...I was carrying Giselle and didn't want to lug the big camera, so I used my phone. My arms are sore today!

Judge: "What did I say about talking to the accused??"
Mater: (begrudginly)" not to..."
