We spent the afternoon and evening in Hollywood, enjoying Cars 2 at the El Capitan Theater. This was our third trip to the historic El Capitan. The first was to see the original Cars, when Emma was an only child. We saw Oceans last year, with a full contingent of children. Oceans, sadly, didn’t get the full feature treatment of organ and curtain light show. Cars 2, though, was a full-blown event. Following the movie (great for kids, so-so for adults) there was a mini-theme park set up behind the theater that entertained us for a good long while.
Marla and I have been Netflix subscribers for a long time now, starting just before Emma was born in 2002. Initially this is because we didn’t trust a babysitter to watch our little treasure. (Now, of course, we couldn’t find a babysitter crazy enough to watch all three.)
