it happened to be one of those days that was raining cats and dogs, but that didn't stop us from heading out for what i really hoped would be a fun activity. i mean, how much would that suck if we'd trekked out to the west side in the rain for something that ended up being super lame? but it looked super cute as we made our way towards the entrance, and there was a super duper long standby line, so i was feeling pretty hopeful as we checked in. the employees outside were pretty grumpy, but i guess i wouldn't be thrilled to be working in the pouring rain either.
luckily, once we got inside it was dry and warm and the staffers were cheerful and friendly. i guess it would have helped if we'd seen the movie before we came, because none of the stuff in the first room made much sense to us. we took pictures anyway though, because why wouldn't we?
then we got to go inside emmett's house, where we finally saw some familiar sights and took pictures on his couch.
the next room also didn't make much sense to us, but we went in and played anyway.
but something else in a far corner looked more fun, and it reminded me of one of the exhibits we'd seen at the broad museum. an attendant handed us a sheet of stickers, asked us not to stand on any of the furniture, and turned us loose in the room. being the last day, there wasn't much empty space for our stickers, but we had fun with it anyway.
we waited in line for the confetti room, where we took a 3-second video that was supposed to get emailed to us but the machine broke down and we got no video to show off. oh well. we did take advantage of the other photo ops, though:
and then waited our turn to make a bumper sticker with our family turned into lego people on it.
the standby line was even longer when we left even though it was raining even harder than when we'd gotten there. but it WAS the final day of the popup, so it made sense.
we still need to go see the movie. hopefully we'll make it into the theater before it's released on DVD. besides, i could use some good buttery movie popcorn. maybe this week.
