Cars is BACK (and we've got a cool give-away)!!!

While they had seen bits and pieces of free Saturday morning movies in the past, in June of 2006 my youngest boys saw their first full length official movie at the theater - Cars (aren't they cute!):
Five years later...Cars 2 is coming out! I am so excited - we LOVED the first Cars movie. We have loads of Cars toys and books, and the boys really took to it. Well, Lucy too is all about cars and trucks (and has been playing with some of the Cars characters even though she hasn't been officially introduced to them yet), and now she has the opportunity to see HER first real in-the-theater movie. Lucy will just be three and the little boys were three and a half, but I'm really hoping that she'll enjoy the second Cars movie (and the popcorn, of course) just as much as her brothers did five years ago!

Between the homage to Back to the Future and the "Materhosen" in the preview below - I'm super excited!

Take a peek at this scene too:

Gotta love a movie that has this great of a bathroom scene - and gotta love Mater! This time around the gang hits the road for an international race - and mystery and intrigue follow them! Cars 2 opens June 24 in theaters across the country (and I can't wait to see it).

If your kids are big Cars fans like mine, keep reading for a cool give-away!

We saw the movie yesterday and loved it! They thought it was so cool that Mater had machine guns! :)

We love lightning mcqueen, or "lightbing begeen" as my son calls him. He sleeps with his "little red race car" at night:) Great story, we can't wait to see the new one!

My kids love Lighning of course but my fav in Cars 2 was Finn McMissle :)

James has loved McQueen since the first movie came out and he still does!

"Mater - cause I like the hook." Lucien (3 1/2) We have a marble jar to keep track of his good behavior and when it is full we are going to go see Cars 2! Grandma and Grandpa are here, so I am pretty sure the jar is going to fill up very soon!

My favorite character is most definitely Mater. He is also Cooper's favorite and his face lights up each time he sees anything with Mater on it. Owen's favorite is Lightning McQueen... We are looking forward to seeing Cars 2 soon!

p.s. this is martha :)

Lightning McQueen is a fav of Krishnan's...when I asked him he said b/c "He's shiny and fast.", and he gets a kick out of Sally calling him "Stickers".
