The day before school let out, I sent Doodle to school with his birthday party invitations. He chose the Green Lantern for his invitation. Last year I sent him to school with the invitations on the last day of school. Let’s just say that was an poor choice! Most of the invitations got lost in the pile of papers kids go home with on the last day of school.
So, this year I got smart. I sent them the day before school was out! I know, I’m a brainiac!
Well, we haven’t heard from anyone! Go figure. So today we started making calls to find out who could come and who couldn’t. This is NOT going well to say the least. Out of 5 kids, we’ve had 2 “no’s”. We didn’t get hold of 2 and 1 was a “yes”.
We’re going to see Cars2 the day after it opens! I sure hope there are kids around wanting to go see it!! In Minnesota, weekends are for heading to the cabin. That may be where we run into trouble. Until then, we’re getting pretty darn excited to go see Cars2! With all the hype surrounding it, I’m even getting excited to go!
In case you live under a rock, here’s a synopsis of the movie:
“Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Studios are off to the races in “Cars 2” as star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and his best friend, the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), jump-start a new adventure to exotic new lands stretching across the globe.
The duo are joined by a hometown pit crew from Radiator Springs when they head overseas to support Lightning as he competes in the first-ever World Grand Prix, a race created to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the finish line is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and bombshells when Mater is mistakenly ensnared in an intriguing escapade of his own: international espionage.
Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and “towing” the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine) and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell (voice of Emily Mortimer). Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan, Italy, France and England, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new cast of cars, boats, trains and airplanes — complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.”
I have to admit, I’m super excited to be taking the kids to see this movie next weekend when it opens! Do you ever do movies for kids birthdays?
