Well, I mean, we WENT to the movies. :) Just me...and kid 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5! We almost took up a whole row of seats. Ha!
We decided to start summer vacation off with a BANG! After I picked the kids up from school, we went and got lunch from White Castles. Drove to the park and ate there. We ate in the car, but we were in the park. In the shade! It was just too hot to get out of the car. Then we went to Julianne's speech therapy, came home for a bit, and then we went! TO THE MOVIES! The kids were all excited, because this is something we don't ever do...well, except for the Hannah Montana movies....(which were more for me anyway!). We had to go to the bank first, to sign over our house to get the money to go to the movies....... ok kidding...but, let's just say....this was a big big splurge. But worth it.
We pulled into the movie theater parking lot, and the kids see this HUGE thing of balloons on top of the movie theater. Promotions for this movie, I suppose, but they got a kick out of that. We get our tickets, our popcorn, soda and candy...and head no in. The kids all loved it. I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't trying to keep Audrey quiet (which she did really good, for the most part), or trying to get Juli and Mason to stay seated...as opposed to standing up and walking to the popcorn bowl. It did not have the "wow" factor, and the 3D effects were not very good or often...so I tell all of you.......you will NOT be missing out if you decide to see the "regular" version.
So....let summer begin. BRING It!
