The drive down to Bar Harbor usually takes an hour but with foggy weather and tourist season in full swing, it took a bit longer. I planned extra time for the drive down and the rain managed to hold off until I had R2-D2 safely inside.
The children range in age from toddler to pre-k and let me tell you, they know STAR WARS! Many times I have had people ask if the kids even know what R2-D2 and STAR WARS is all about. I can assure you that they do!
Once we were indoors, the kids crowded around and looked, touched (gently!) and thoroughly investigated this little robot.
As the guy controlling R2-D2, with two large remote controls, I am always fascinated how quickly the kids forget me. They do not see R2-D2 as a movie prop or a gadget. They see it as a little person, just like them!

Once the kids had their time with R2-D2, it was lunch time...and the kids were pretty trilled to have R2 join them
Perhaps my favorite part was when the kids would pepper me with questions, be it how R2-D2 works ....or how do my cats like living with an R2-D2!
