We crossed one thing off our summer to do list last weekend. We went to a Star Wars exhibit. Evie is quite a little Star Wars buff, at least for the original three movies. She hasn’t seen the newer prequel movies, but those are also on the summer to do list also. I think our list is quite long, although it is sort of a virtual list in my head. I think I should make a real list so we can cross things off as we complete them. I’ll add that to the list!
Back to Star Wars. We all like the movies and Evie is extremely detailed in her study of the characters, their names and what their relationships are to each other. You can concentrate on that sort of thing when you are 5. She was very excited to make it to this exhibit, so were her parents. It is not every day you get your picture taken with R2D2 or Yoda. However, she would not get her picture taken with Darth Vader unless her Dad picked her up, she said he looked to real. The exhibit is interactive and as you go through you created your own identity. The pictures are not very clear because it was a little dark and you cannot use a flash in the exhibit.
I am a Togruta farmer who lives on Naboo and I work to protect Wapoo habitat. Not sure how that would work. Evie is also a Togruta, but a fighter pilot. Ray is a Wookie. Interesting inter-species family.
At the end of the exhibit Evie got a Queen Amidala t-shirt and a Star Wars cook book to add to our collection of cookbooks. We already used the book to make Greedo’s Burritos and Yoda Soda. They were really good. The next recipe to make from that book is Wookie Cookies.
After we left the exhibit the sun came out and we stopped at a strawberry field and picked strawberries. Later that evening we made a really quick and easy freezer jam. That will be for our next post.
