Well...this was the first time we spent more than a few minutes on this particular holiday. Of course, on the morning of February 2, we'll watch the news to find out if the groundhog will see his shadow. But usually that's it.
But this year was a big year for Groundhog's Day. Remember the movie entitled Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray and Andie McDowell? Well, this year was it's 20th anniversary, and it was filmed in Woodstock, Illinois. My parents and I loved that movie, so we thought it would be fun to join in the festivities that the town had planned. :)
We started the day off by watching the movie, Groundhog Day, in the theater that was actually in the movie. (Does that even make sense?) It was so fun because the theater was jam packed with an audience that was so "into" the movie. When the main characters drove into Woodstock Townsquare, everyone cheered!
My husband and me :)
Such a fun weekend! Thanks, Mom and Dad! (And thanks, Julie and Chris, for taking care of Moxie, and despite the temptation to the contrary, thank you for giving her back to us!)
