I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Harry Potter 7 party at the Clark Planetarium last night compliments of UTA. Yes, you heard me right. A HARRY POTTER PARTY AT THE CLARK PLANETARIUM!!!
It was so very fun. I hadn't been to the Clark Planetarium before and I was just totally blown away by how amazing it was. CG and I got to go together. We pretended like it was a date. You know dates like grown ups go on. Of course, the entire time we were talking about how much fun our girls would have if it hadn't started after their bed time. I debated about bringing them, but this morning was the school Turkey Trot and we have to have our priorities.
Speaking of priorities, we got to enjoy a laser show while we were there. The last time I went to a laser show was when I was in high school. It was U2. Ah, the memories. And if you've ever wondered how the laser show would look in pictures, here you go. Sans flash, of course. I'm not that much of a hillbilly.
And "Ms. Trelawny's sister" was there reading tea leaves. It was awesome. At first I thought it was a joke, then maybe not. She said some pretty interesting things that lead me to believe that I am either a HUGE stereotype or she's got some specials talents going on. A lot of the evidence suggests the stereotype theory. So, the jury is still out about the Leaf Lady and how much of a sucker I really am, but either way, we had fun.
We were also sorted into our Hogwarts houses. CG is Ravenclaw and I am Hufflepuff. We had cupcakes with chocolate frogs and spent a few minutes wandering through Diagon Alley, formerly known as the gift shop. A surprisingly affordable gift shop. One thing is for sure...the Clark Planetarium really knows how to throw a party.
And I even had my picture taken with a celebrity.
