They had it set up to have pictures taken with each car. Then they would put your pictures online and you can print them out at home after 48 hours. Timothy went up to each car with a permagrin. Mason really wasn't so sure. I could not get him to go near them at all!
I even caught Timothy sneak under the rope to touch Lightning McQueen, he wasn't the only one. I didn't even yell at him! Their faces said it all. This is exactly why I go through the hassle of even leaving the house sometimes. It's always worth it!
The best part though. Was when we were leaving, driving home. All Timothy kept saying was how fun it was to see Lightning and Mater. Over and over and over. That made me smile. He doesn't even remember all the work it took to even make it out of the house, to the event on time, and waiting in that line in the cold for an hour. I remember though. But I remember that all the hassle was worth their joy!

Thankfully I am about 12 miles south of St. Louis and it has only rained here. The kids have been in rare form this morning. LOTS of whining, crying, fit throwing, screaming. Over EVERYTHING. It's just one of those days. Where putting cheerios on the plate the wrong way, as if there is a right way, elicits screams of protest. "I'M NOT EATING"! To which I respond casually "Then don't eat"! It's just one of those days.
But despite the lack of sunshine I need to find my motivation and quick. There is a mountain of laundry to do, toys to pick up, dishes to do, bathroom to clean. The chores around here don't cease when the sun isn't shining, and I am pretty sure the cleaning fairy went somewhere where it's warm and sunny. So regardless of my blah mood, I need to be productive today.
If you have warmth and sunshine where you are, bottle it up and send some my way. I would really appreciate it. In other news. Taylor is officially off the bottle. Has been for about a week now!! She eats all table food now, whatever we are eating usually. I forgot how easy it is to have a child who is now off a bottle and baby food. A little sad yes, but so much easier. My little princess is growing so fast.
