Summer Movie Fun

TODAY was the first day! Getting up early was a little hard (ok very difficult). I was so tired from being out late last night & only got a couple hours of sleep. So, I told the kids to get dressed, eat, brush their teeth & hair, then I would get up & throw myself together so we could get out the door.

Thanks to Allison (you're awesome!) we had a row of seats saved at the theater when we got there. Actually our big group had 3 rows together. It was like a big party!! Lots of people I know were there with all their kids. It was noisy, crowded, hectic, a little chaotic, but turned out to be actually quite perfect! I mean, if the theater is full of kids, then it doesn't matter if mine are a little wiggly or noisy because pretty much all of them were that way! We blended quite well. I was very proud of my kiddos - they were very quiet, sat still, and enjoyed the movie "Veggie Tales - the Pirates Who Do Nothing" (I think that was the title). It was one they hadn't seen before, so they were very enthused about it. It was a cute movie, but I have to admit my eyelids grew heavy and closed for short spans of the ending. Oh, the kids also were excited to use their points to get a box of candy from the grab bag this morning to bring to the theater. So, they happily munched on that during the movie. Nathaniel decided to save his points for a sleepover at Grandma's house tonight. (and I used my Mother's Day Ulta 'gift w/ purchase' big pink purse to carry all our goodies - it worked wonderfully!)

Now the kids canNOT wait til next week!! This should be a good summer! I'm excited :)

I think this is what we are going to do this summer - see lots of movies! It will have to wait until we get back from girls camp, though!
