Star Wars at the Museum

The boys and I met up with some friends at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham today for a special Heroes, Villians, and Special Effects event. Star Wars characters were the main attraction for many of the little kids...Joey and Johnny included! They got to pose with Imperial Officers, Princess Leia, a Stormtrooper, and R2-D2. The boys got their faces painted. Joey decided on Darth Maul, and Johnny picked 'blue boy'. It was neat to watch them get it done and then to enjoy being done up. The boys also got to paticipate in a green screen Star Wars battle. Think about watching the nightly weather person give the forecast only Star Wars style. There was another area training stunt choreopgraphy. And, we got to watch some stunt people fall off a building (onto an air bag). We always enjoy the museum, and today was extra nice.
All the pics are here. You'll also see Joey climbing the rock climbing wall and Johnny doing the fireman pole outside for the first time.

That was a really good R2D2 unit. I can see it was a real hit since it was mobbed by the kids and adults alike. Looks like you all had a great time. Thanks for sharing the pictues.
