A Birthday Surprise Created and Then Ruined by Pixar

Well dip me in axle grease and call me slick.

I’ve got a few topics I considered writing about, but they all seemed too heavy for a Wednesday Evening. Who wants heavy lifting after a full day of work, or sunshine, or whatever you had today?

So we’ll go with something light and fun. Especially, since tomorrow is the start of Bang’s birthday month, I thought I’d talk about what I’m excited for.

His birthday. He’s been asking for days, “How many more sleeps until June?” He would buzz with excitement when we’d tell him.

A couple weeks ago DW and I saw a trailer on TV for a sequel to a movie we’ve seen a few hundred times.

Cars. Lightning McQueen and Mater make a team that rivals Buzz and Woody. It was Crash’s favorite movie. DW and I loved it, too. We found new things to laugh at every time we watched it.

Then they made Cars 2. It was okay, but I equate it to the Star Wars prequels. It just wasn’t the same.

Then DW saw the trailer for Cars 3 and knew we had to see it. We’ll probably take the kids, too.

Cars 3 comes out the day before Bang turns 6. We were going to make it a surprise. However, since both boys watch TV they eventually saw the trailer. Then they saw it’s release date. Thanks Pixar for both creating a great birthday surprise and then ruining it.

They may have been more excited than me. But not by much.

I think Pixar will live up to its usual expectations. The movie appears to revert back to it’s roots of racing, friendship, and overcoming incredible obstacles that rang out in the first movie. I expect it to have all the humor and all the feels Pixar has been known for since it’s iconic release of Toy Story.

Are you planning on taking your kidlets to watch?

Now race on over and follow me on Facebook and Twitter!

  1. Kiddo was -obsessed- with Cars from about two to five years old. We weren’t too impressed with the sequel either. I mentioned the Cars 3 trailer to Jim and he was not at all interested. It was one of those ‘my baby isn’t a baby’ anymore moments for me.

  2. I’m excited about this, too! There are several I want to see this summer. Will definitely be taking Little Man to see Cars 2. Baby Girl LOVES Cars, but will only watch 15 minutes before checking out.

      • Despicable Me 3, Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Captain Underpants. Plus Transformers and Guardians of the Galaxy (not really looking forward to those, but I’ll probably end up seeing them.) I definitely want to see Wonder Woman, too.
