Movie Night!

Tonight we attended our first movie at a theater as a family of four. When I was explaining to Graham this morning what the plan was, I realized he had no clue what a movie theater was. The kids watch very little TV so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that he didn't know such a place even existed. I had to explain that it was a big room, with lots of chairs, and a giant screen. Needless to say, he was very excited for Daddy to arrive home from work so we could leave. We saw Disney's 'The Princess and the Frog' and both kids LOVED it! It was actually a very cute cartoon with a great message. Amelia danced happily in her seat to the jazz music nearly the entire time and Graham was so mesmerized that he hardly touched his popcorn! I'd say that our first public movie outing was a success. Too bad toddler friendly movies are hard to come by these days!

Getting ready for the movie to start. Sippy cups and individual bags of popcorn, does it get any better? Amelia insisted on having her own chair, but she's so small that the chair kept folding up on her. So,the compromise was that she had to share her chair with the diaper bag and all our coats to help weight it down!

This photo has nothing to do with our movie outing, but I think it's cute, so I'm including it. Amelia is physically able to walk, but she still prefers to crawl. She played peek-a-poo around the corner with me for quite a while this afternoon and couldn't stop laughing!
