Sorry everyone, I'm skipping the Tuesday Football tracker this week. I've had so much going on this weekend that I didn't even watch any football. If so much going on means, sleeping away the entire 2nd half of my Saturday, than yeah It's been crazy busy for me. I needed to catch up on my sleep so that when I started my new job I'd be on POINT!
So instead of spending my Sunday crafting as per usual and watching football, I decided to take The Boy and my Nephew PAPA to the movies. I did happen to bust out SIX halloween trick or treat bags in under ONE hour before we left though. YAY ME! I had planned on us seeing It's Raining Meatballs, however we had a slight change of plans and ended up seeing Astro Boy instead.
Movie theaters are crazy! I mean seriously, I'm not sure I'll be seeing another movie for a long time. $46 is what I spent for 2 kids and myself to attend the movie. The tickets, matinee, were $21 dollars and the food was $25. Seriously $25 for 2 hot dogs, a bag of popcorn and 3 sodas. $6 for a small bag of popcorn. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It's insane how expensive the snack bar at the movie theater is.
All in all, it was totally worth it, especially since my sister gave me $20. The movie started out kinda rough. Not the actual movie, but our adventure in getting to the movies. We arrived right on time so it was super dark in the theater when we walked in and the previews were all ready playing. I was NOT AT ALL surprised we were the only ones in the theater. After the $46 price tag, I totally understood why.
So anyway Poor Papa spilled his orange soda all over his shoes as we were walking up the stairs to our seat. The Boy, actually had a sweet boy moment, and gave his drink to Papa. Thanks for sharing. The boy wanted to sit at the very top of the theater, so we did. It was so cute because Papa said, "Wow I've never sat up here before."
All in all it was an alright movie. I can't deny a tear might have been shed towards the end. I had to say it was alright because it was VERY VIOLENT. For a moment I thought I was watching a war film with all the explosions, gun fire and robots being destroyed. I wouldn't really consider this an appropriate movie for small children because of the violence.
So here are some pictures of our movie adventure. No persons were bothered by the flash of the camera. Like I said we were the only ones in the theater.
BTW I'm HATING my BLACKBERRY. It sucks for taking pictures and than even more so pulling them off onto my computer. I CAN'T WAIT TILL MY "MY TOUCH" ARRIVES THIS WEEK!
Seriously Auntie, I'm trying to watch the movie! It's just a hot dog!
I love me some popcorn!
Astro Boy, kicking some Robot BUTT!!
You've got to end the MOVIE adventure with a treat from the quarter machine. The Boy got a GIANT jawbreaker for $1. Yeah hello remember when these use to be a QUARTER. Papa got himself some $.50 M&M'S and I got some Lotsa Sours.
What was the last movie you saw?
