We Pursued and We Found the "Cars" Magic This Week

This week was all about Disney-Pixar's Cars.  Honestly, we just love the first Cars movie and were very excited to see the second.  So this week was dedicated to Lightning McQueen and friends.

Monday, I shared with you Joey's Cars Room Makeover.

Tuesday was Summertime Fun with Lightning McQueen.  I found a lot of great summer toys, bathing suits and such at our local dollar store.  I went off the beaten path just a little bit on Wednesday to share the non-Disney side of me by participating in Disney Bird's Something About Me Blog Hop.

On Wednesday, I showed you all the new Cars 2 party supplies for Joey's kindergarten graduation party.  Did you know they all have a 3D effect?  So, I even included a link to WDW Field Guide's instructions to create your own 3D glasses.

I also joined in Focused on the Magic's Wordless Wednesday Hop with a little video of Joey when he was just two called Joey's Love of Cars Began Back in 2007.

If you are looking to find some great books to add to your child's bookshelf, on Thursday I shared some of our favorites in my post A Library of Cars Friends.  I also just picked up some Cars 2 Step Into Reading books, which just arrived at our local Wal-Mart.  Also on Thursday, we had our Disney-Pixar Cars movie night to get ourselves ready for going to see Cars 2 on Friday.

Friday, I recommended that you check out the bonus feature Inspiration for Cars on the Cars Blu-ray.  I was very touched by the interview with John Lasseter and to see just how the first Cars movie came to be.  We also went to see Cars 2, which we enjoyed, though Doc Hudson was certainly missed.

Finally, Saturday, I shared some of the Disney-Pixar Cars products we use in our everyday lives, such as band-aids, snacks, and much more. 

Did you make it out to see Cars 2 yet?  What did you think of it?

We are going tonight to see Cars 2 with a group from our church. My girls are sooo excited!

I hope we get to see Cars 2 soon, my kids are very excited and it's nice to hear the great reviews, my hubby and I have always thought its going to be a bad sequel since recently the movie industry is flooding with sloppy seconds and we didn't really like the first one.

We saw it Friday and enjoyed it. Not quite as good as the first, but I still thought it was fun.

By the way I'm visiting from the Tiggerific Blog Bounce & I'm following now.
