Joshua's wait for Cars 2 finally ended!



Anyone that knows Joshua knows that he is over the top obsessed with Lightning McQueen. Well today Joshua finally got to see Lightning McQueen on the big screen! He was not born yet when Cars 1 was out but by his second birthday he was already a big fan. With all of the marketing out for the big release of #2, including the decorations from his 4th birthday party 2 weeks ago, he was out of his mind excited to see it.

We pre-purchaed tickets on Fandango and Uncle Jim took the train up from the city to join us. We got a Jumbo popcorn and had some candy treats for the boys too.

Here are Jacob and Joshua, decked out in their Cars 2 shirts, in front of the promo poster...


They had this awesome billboard in the lobby...


Here they are with Uncle Jim all ready to eat popcorn and watch the movie...


Jacob was excited to see Mater and Finn McMissile. We've been reading lots of Cars 2 books so they have a good idea about the characters and story line.


I love the 3D glasses. Brett never changed out of his dress shirt from baby Noah's baptism that we were at just before we went to the theater.


Joshua LOVED the movie, and really it was not nearly as bad as the reviews are saying. I have seen Cars 1 many, many, times and the characters are endearing enough to want to follow in this new movie. I loved going with them to Tokyo, Italy, and London. The Real 3D was really fun during the race scenes and the flying scenes too.


The glasses tend to hurt the bridge of your nose after a while so Jacob kept taking his off...


When we got home the boys discovered the new Cars 2 pajamas that I had set up on the sofa along with Mater and Lightning pillow pals. The boys really loved them.


Jacob pretended that Mater was in flying spy mode from the movie...


 Here is Jacob in the Mater Jammies...


Joshua was pooped and trying to avoid the camera...


 I had fun watching them enjoy it all so much! 
Joshua thinks we will get the movie in the mail now (from Netflix).


We know it will be out just in time for Christmas!
