For those of you who don’t know, my man is a pretty big Star Wars fan.  When I met him, I knew that Star Wars was a part of his past, but then he embraced his inner child/geek, and it became an even bigger part of our lives.  On our honeymoon through California, we went and saw Episode I: The Phantom Menace, a movie that Bradley just loved and I?  I fell asleep.  Then we had kids and a reason to purchase action figures and vehicles was born.  Gigi and Jude are well equipped with Galactic Heroes, books galore, costumes, light sabers and often have Star Wars movie or Clone Wars episode viewing parties where they like to act out their favorite scenes.  I have to admit that I am not a big Star Wars fan, but support my family with their obsession so much that despite ever paying close attention to any of the movies I am pretty well versed in names, planets, and story lines!  I can definitely hold my own in a Star Wars geek conversation!  So when we heard that there was going to be a Star Wars exhibit at the Pacific Science Center this spring, we knew it was inevitable that we would make our way downtown to take a peek.  That day was today.  Gigi and I stayed home from school today (gasp!) and made our way, with our boys, to see the sights.  The following picture gallery is a little of what we captured.

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
