Barbie saw her name in the paper today!
She read a movie review about the new "Bratz" movie, . It was saying that the Bratz tried to copy Barbie. Well, Barbie KNEW that.
The review said the Bratz were stupid and materialistic - and that at least Barbie was usually intelligent and had a career and a steady boyfriend and all.
Barbie wasn't sure that was a flattering comparison - and she really didn't like calling anything "stupid" . But she didn't like the Bratz trying to be HER either. They were nothing alike. The nerve!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~When she was reading the paper, Ken saw an ad for a Car Show.
That sounded like fun, so they spent the afternoon there.
The car show was really busy when they got there. Ken said he didn't know it was going to be a Monster Car Show.
There were lots of people to talk to, and lots of really cool old cars.
Barbie and Ken had fun taking their pictures beside some of the cars...
Ken liked looking at the really big engines.
Barbie liked the pretty colors, especially the pink 1959 Cadillac. Sadly, she couldn't get close enough to stand beside it for a picture.
Ken was suprised how much Barbie knew about cars. Barbie didn't tell him she mostly just knows stuff about PINK cars...
Barbie was glad they came to the car show instead of the Bratz movie.
The weather was beautiful and it was a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon - even if Ken whined a little about how much walking they had to do.
Barbie let him rest his plastic muscles in the shade every now and then.
