We went to see Inside Out later in the evening. It was so funny and exceeded my expectations. I’m not going to lie. I had my doubts about it, but it’s Pixar. How could they possibly not deliver?! Also, it was fun to see which San Francisco landmarks and locations to showcase. I think Riley lived around our neighborhood. 🙂Inside Out movie banner
