This afternoon, we ventured into Philly for this Cars 2 event sponsored by State Farm Insurance. Basically, the boys could have their pictures taken with three of the characters from the new Disney/Pixar film Cars 2: Lightening McQueen, Tow Mater, and Finn McMissile. The characters were on display in the parking lot of Citizen’s Bank Park, the home of the Phillies, and as luck would have it, the Phils were playing the Marlins. Unfortunately, the game was sold out, and though we gave it a try, there were just no tickets to be had…

Oh, yeah, the boys did get their pictures taken with Lightening McQueen and the gang…

But according to the web page where I am to retrieve the pictures, they haven’t been “processed” yet (which takes 48-hours). So stay tuned…

UPDATE (2/19): It’s been 48-hours and the “process” is complete. Here’s one of the pictures: This is us with the new Cars character, “Finn McMissile” (a British Mi6 agent played by Michael Caine):

    That is fantastic! Do you have one with Mater? Sorry you did not get to see the game. How do you think the boys would have liked that? I can just picture them in the stands, sitting quietly and watching the game. Yeah, sure!!
