May 4th is Star Wars Day!! It falls on a Saturday this year which means once we've exhausted the kids from playing all day, we'll snuggle up on the couch and begin a Star Wars Marathon. We'll watch them in order which the kids will find entertaining because they always notice how the cinematography changes, and they love to point it out to us. Cause you know us old folks don't notice stuff like that.
My family LOVES Star Wars. The kids know the music, the composer, can listen to a track and tell you from which film it came from.
We each have our favorite characters and our reasons why we love them!
James-Darth Vader (because really all six movies are about Darth Vader)
Jenny-Master Jedi Yoda (he has the deepest sayings!!)
Haley-Darth Vader (he's cool!!)
Ella-Darth Vader (he's SOOOOOO cool!)
Ronin-Chewbacca (he's strong)
Disney's Hollywood Studios even has a special Star Wars day and while we don't go (we don't do crowds....) they also run Star Wars weekends throughout May/June, so I'm hoping we can make it up this year. We've done it once before back in 2008, and it was super hard on us. This was right around the time when I knew that something was "up" with Ronin and everything (and I mean E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.) was a trigger for my little dude. I think we lasted at the park like 2 hours MAX and we spent a small fortune to get in, and Disney wouldn't help us out at all with a refund, or return tickets or anything which was very disappointing, and honestly kinda burned me on the whole Disney thing. But now that we have a diagnosis and are eligible for special needs ticketing, Disney might be worth another go??!!
We totally love everything Star Wars.

And though I have DOZENS of Star Wars shirts, this one is my favorite:

It's DOG VADER!!
It was awesome to see some of the Star Wars characters out at the Autism Speaks Walk in Tampa in April, 2013.
I have so many more photos I can share, but I think you get it. We love Star Wars.
Do you love Star Wars? Which character is your favorite? Which episode is your fave??
