Father's Day 2010 aka Toy Story 3D Day!!
As everyone in the United States with a child under the age of 8 probably knows, Toy Story 3 came out this weekend. G's actually never seen Toy Story 1 or 2 but she's seen commercials and was interested. They were doing what sounded like a neat event at the El Capitan Theater-- reserved seat (no waiting in line, yeah!!), popcorn and drink for each person and admission to the Toy Story Fun Zone.

G loved the movie! In the past, she's gotten a bit wiggly during the last 10 mins of so of a movie but not this time. Bobby and I enjoyed it too. Its funny, has a good storyline and is a bit of a tear jerker in parts.

After the movie, we hung out at the Fun Zone --kind of a carnival type thing set up on what appared to be the football field of Hollywood High. Georgie had tons of fun. We stayed until they announced over the loudspeaker that it was time to go. G was completely zonked and fell fast asleep pretty much as soon as we got in the car. Poor baby.

G and daddy waiting for the movie to start:


There's a pipe organ there at the theater and they play music before the show starts... very cool! G loved these giant fake crayons. I didn't really get the attraction to tell you honestly but G messed with them for a quite a while and seemed a bit miffed when I suggested that we go see what else they had to do.
Sweating our booties off with the Barbie and Ken cut outs:
They had these slinky things set up. They were obviously built to be the exact height and width to make slinky-ing easy. G probably spent a total of 30 mins flicking the slinky, watching them progress down the stairs, seeing them drop into a basket at the bottom and then waiting for mommy and/or daddy retrieve it so she could do it all over again. Too fun

G's clippie was a ribbon sculpture purchased from etsy. The outfit, also from an etsy seller, was a super cute and comfy custom that G was very excited about wearing. I thought she looked absolutely adorable!!!
One of the best things about going to these events is that there are just a few hundred people there so it makes seeing the characters pretty easy. G with Woody and Buzz.
The three of us with the Toy Story gang!G had fun jumping around in this gym area. Lots and lots of those thick mats kept her busy. I think in this pic she was pretending that this one was a horsey.
With Jessie
Again with Buzz and Woody
G ended up with a Woody doll. We gave her a choice: Woody or Jessie. I thought, and for some silly reason was hoping, that she would choose the Jessie doll but, no.
