Cars 2 – Summer Bucket List Challenge

We took the kids to a matinee showing of Cars 2 on the 4th of July. They were SO excited to see the movie, they just couldn’t stand it. They even brought in their Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli cars.

We watched the movie and really enjoyed it. Lia got pretty antsy… she’s still not quite old enough to sit still for an entire movie (unless it’s Belle). Max and Ava LOVED it! I’m not sure why it got so many bad reviews… I thought it was a pretty cute movie.

It’s pretty funny, because the first Cars movie came out when Max was little. And that kid was OBSESSED with Cars. He played cars every minute of every day. That lasted about 3 years.

And then Star Wars came. He forgot all about his cars and we were suddenly swept up in Anakin Skywalker, Jedi cruisers, and lightsabers. I thought about selling his cars several times. In fact, I almost sold them earlier this summer at my garage sale, but decided to wait until after the movie came out. I thought it might increase my resale value 😉

Well, luckily I didn’t sell the cars. Star Wars has pretty much disappeared from the radar at our house. We’re back to all cars all the time. I don’t really see it ending anytime soon, but we’ll see what happens when school starts.
