Nate is a huge fan of the movie Cars. He knows the whole story, all the characters, and has assigned everyone in our house a car name. He, of course, is Lightning Mcqueen, I am Tow Mater, Rosemary is Sally, Balázs is Doc, and Felicia is "Low and slow"
So when when Nate saw the advertisements a few months ago for Cars 2 he was pretty excited.
Over the last few months we've been building up to it - grandma and grandpa have sent a few toys and today he got a special Cars 2 hat from them to wear to watch the movie.
Today was the big day - the opening day in fact, for Cars 2 in Hungary, so we took him to see it. It was his first time at the movie theater, and he had a great time. Nate has been counting down the days since before English camp, and when I went into his room this morning, I asked him: "do you know what day today is?" - to which he said: "it's Cars 2 day!"
We were curious how he would like it, and if he would be scared by the dark room or the loud speakers, so we tried to prepare him for it as best we could. In the end there was no problem at all - in fact, I think we may have just turned him on to a new and expensive interest!
We went with our friend Leo and his son Alex. Balázs also came with a friend, but Felicia stayed home with Kristen, a friend of ours from California who is staying with us for few weeks here in Eger. It was nice of her to watch Felicia so we could both take Nate out for his special day.
Nate got to know some new cars today: Finn, Pacer and others, and Rosemary got a new car name. She is now called Holly Cady (the girlfriend of Tow Mater :-)
