I had texted a "Happy Father's Day" to my father that afternoon, and asked him if it would be okay to call at 9:00 PM when I got off from work. He said it would be fine. Well, like I said, the exciting world of retail ruins every holiday and I didn't get home until 11:30 that night... much too late to call my dad.
Basically Brian and I did not see or talk to any fathers on Father's Day.
I talked to my dad the next day and explained what had happened with work. Luckily I had mailed a Father's Day card a few days before, so he wasn't completely neglected. Brian had Monday off, and I worked in the early morning until 11:00 only, so we were able to drive to Orem yesterday. We got together with his whole family (except for Courtney who left for EFY) and saw Toy Story 3 in 3D as a family!

Toy Story 3 AWESOME!
Now, as I've mentioned before, I've seen the first part of this movie months ago at a special cliff-hanger screening, so I was very, very excited to finally see how it would end!! I had read a review on the MSN homepage that loved it, and its rating on rottentomatoes.com was currently at a 98%, so I figured the ending had to be just as good as the part we had watched. And boy was it! Not only did I find the whole first half funnier even than the first time, but the new-to-me part of the story--the conclusion--was epic and powerful and downright flawless!
Toy Story 3 is a brilliant beyond brilliant film. I don't know how Pixar manages to do it again and again and again... but they do. A film critic by the name of Eric D. Snider said it best, "Toy Story 3 is the greatest thing in the history of ever."
All I can say is, go see it! If you need more convincing, read Brian's review of it for Salt Lake City Examiner.
