Hola! Me Llamo Dora!

That's right. We've entered the world of taking our child(ren) to "live" appearances by favorite cartoon characters. Saturday? The Fowler's Furniture Center in West Knoxville. To see? Dora . . .and Diego, of course.

You would think, by the way she so willingly "waved" to Diego, as he was coming out of the back of the warehouse, that she was excited.
Think again.

We stood in line for about 20 minutes. Dora and Diego needed a potty break. It would have been another 10 minutes for their break, and then an additional 20 minutes to the front of the line.
We decided that the experience seeing them walk by was enough. Hopefully, when we finally make it to Disney, she won't be terrorized by characters that are 12.5 times bigger than she is.
Until then, we wait. And, continue these "drive-by" encouters with fame.

I love the look on her face in the last picture. It's like "Whoa, I'm a bit too close"...Too cute.

OMG she looks so grown up!
Funny - I never knew Dora and Diego were so tall! They look so much smaller on TV...

YAY! But I can understand, those big characters can be kinda scary. When Red Robin came by our table the other day (at Red robin) I was kinda scared, too!

Nashville in May? Let me know! Thanks for reading my (long) email the other day. Keep me posted if you hear more...
