LA County USC hospital visit

We recently visited a special little friend in the pediatrics ward at LA County USC Hospital, whom we had visited previously at CHOC. R2 brought smiles to lots of faces--patients, staff and visitors alike.

Oscars 2016, Hollywood

We were honored to be a part of the droid team for the 2016 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. So many epic moments, including meeting Lady Gaga backstage. She saw R2-D2 in the hallway, yelled "R2-D2!" and came running to talk to him and give him a kiss. She and her team are such friendly people, we enjoyed their company after the show.
