it was Ron's birthday! His lovely sister got him two tickets to Star Wars in Concert... and the event was TODAY! Part of the deal was a built in babysitter, so he and I drove off to Ontario...
while Libi spent the day with her Aunts.
Grammy and Grampy also joined in on the fun!
They went all over: lunch, the park, Grammy and Grampy's house! A very full day of fun.
Ron and I made it all the way down there in record time... which was a good thing!
They have all sorts of displays and memorabilia to look at...
not to mention folks dressed up as characters from all of the movies.
while I had mine taken with my superstar... Neil!!!!!!!
There was a sizable line for these guys, but we wanted a picture of the two of us with a character so we waited. I was hoping for a warm, fuzzy pose maybe all of us holding hands...
but this is what we got. Not exactly a Christmas card photo. (Please note how oblivious we are to what they are doing-- see our huge smiles and happy hand-holding!)
We had really good seats for the show!
Let's get this party started!!!
The host was the actor who played C3PO in every Star Wars movie, Anthony Daniels. He did a wonderful job of re-telling the story in chronological order...
while the orchestra played John Williams' amazing music, lasers went off, and movie scenes played on the big screen.
It was a really cool event!!! Even if I had to take secret photos so as not to make our usher lady angry :)
While I'm not a huge Star Wars fan it was totally an enjoyable afternoon-- something that you don't see every day!
