The Wizard of Oz

Last Thursday at "Movies in the Park", our city had a showing of "Wizard of Oz" and had photo ops with the characters. Anna and Steve went to this event, and Steve did a great job taking lots of pictures.

I was impressed with the costumes of all the characters, especially the tin man.

The screen was an impressive size for the large crowd.

Anna wanted to dress up for this event, and there was a costume contest. Being so non-competitive, it was a step out of her comfort-zone to stand in front of the audience. She didn't come in first place but is a winner in our book. Anna laughed as she told me about how Daddy was cheering so loudly for her.

The items we bought a couple hours before showtime: some gingham fabric and elastic for the most basic skirt, blue ribbon for her hair, and red shoes from Payless. Although it was not my intention, I see an updated, more modern Dorothy here, hee hee.

Sam wanted to go too but it was too close to his bedtime. Plus he wasn't too thrilled with his costume.

Anna is so cute! She won in our book - with Sammy a close second.
