The event went well. We spent most of the day walking the store, talking to people and enticing them into the store by going over to the mall-side entrance. We participated in Story hour: listening to the story with the kids, helping with the coloring sheets and making "emergency" oragami Yodas, and picking the raffle winners out of the box.

The kids were happy and having fun and the parents all wanted pictures. The store got pictures of us with their digital team and the nooks. The store was happy to have us and asked if they would see us again next year.

Had a fun time. We both forgot our cameras, but my wife took a few pictures with my cell phone. Almost all of them were blurry - one of these days I'll give her some training! However, here's one that actually came out clear:



Han Solo coloring with the kids. If you notice, we had a little Jedi in attendance, and he was great, he obviously had a fun time. Also, we met a future Rebel Legion member who was dressed up as Arena Battle Padme. She's ready to start next year once she turns 18. Hopefully next year we can get some more members in attendance.
