A long time ago (well, last night) in a galaxy far far away (well, in a science museum over in St. Paul anyway)

Feast your eyes on pictures from our trip to the Science Museum of Minnesota to see the Star Wars exhibit! Believe it or not, I forgot my camera in the car and I didn't want to go back to get it. Fortunately Jimmy and Katie brought theirs so we have plenty of pictures anyway. I realize I've posted quite a few of those pictures, but the bunch I've posted represent only a very small fraction of the number of pictures we took.

The kids and some very famous costumes/robots:

Sara3PO and Matt2D2The very very cool Millenium Falcon:
Mattakin Skywalker
Matt mimics a pit droid:
Matt converses with a trashcan droid:
The landspeeder (I'd want one, but it would need to seat 7)

Katie and Matt fight with a Droideka:
Jimmy dreams of being Han Solo:
Katie dreams of Hayden Christiansen as Anakin
Two Wookiees and a Pauliee

Jimmy and two new friends:"This must be one of the droids we're looking for"

Yoot Stywater meets up with Darth Vader (family joke: Paul used to pronounce "Luke Skywalker" as "Yoot Stywater")

Needed more words, Sara. Like were these all original. Were there lots of people there? Were there people dressed up like stormtroopers walking around? etc etc etc. A girl needs to know! Did you see the movie, too?
All the props and costumes that didn't have real people in them were original.

The dressed up people were just there to be cute and have their pictures taken with the museum goers.

There weren't a lot of people there when we first got there at 6, but by 7 pm, we were having to shove people out of the way so we could see things (not really. But the place was much much busier at 7).

Yes we saw the Special Effects movie. It looked to be over 10 years old and featured movies other than Star Wars (although there was some Star Wars stuff in it)

If Chewbacca got picked in the NBA draft, would he be the wookie of the year?

That looks like a lot of fun. I didn't realize you were one of "those" people who waited in line for hours to go to anything Star Wars related. J/k!
