Tuesday's Free Movies


Thank you Regal... one more place to go to stay out of the heat. Not exactly the crowd I want Sophia hanging out with... (the second picture) but fun nonetheless. She lasts really good for a half hour or so, (if I bring popcorn), after that it gets a little tricky, what with her running away from me in a dark theater, with nothing but her giggles for me to track her by. (Exaggeration... I wouldn't actually lose her if she stopped giggling, that would be scary.) But the best part is just seeing her sit there in a real movie seat, eating popcorn and watching a "show" on the silver screen. I really love movies myself, so there's just something really cool about it. One more thing that makes me realize she's just a miniature version of a whole, grown-up person I guess.
Since we can't be in the pool ALL of the time, I am so grateful for one more way to fill a summer morning. And I'm SO glad that by the time the new baby comes, the weather will be nice, and a simple walk to the park, or backyard play-time might actually suffice. Oh, were it fall...

I was actually thinking about the weather thing right before I read this post...come december I'm going to be in feet of snow and you're going to be walking to the park! Do you deserve it because you've had to deal with SO much hotter weather? I would say yes, except I don't have A/C, so there have been days where there is no escape from the upper 90's... no, you still deserve it. there's nothing like 116.

great idea about the movie. I haven't tried that with zane, but hello I bet he'd LOVE it. way to be adventurous. :)

Becky-- NO I did NOT take her to the Simpsons! Now I'm so worried that that's what it looks like! They just have that set up in the lobby and she runs to them after the movies. That week was veggie tales or something... elmo one week, flushed away, clifford.... etc... you get it, movies that make me a good mom. :)
