So I found out, via some blog, about these "Free Family Film Festivals" held at Regal Theaters across America. I found a theater somewhat close to us - in Grand Junction. So I decided to take the kids up on Tuesday morning to see Wallace and Gromit. We left a little bit after breakfast and stayed for the whole day - well, we got back around 3:30. That's a whole day to me. :) It was fun and here are some pics of some of what we did yesterday:Here the kiddos are in front of the theater. The movie was super fun and super cute. The kids got only slightly scared - not bad for my kids. Emmy lost interest the last 20 minutes, but had fun on the stairs. It was Miles' 3rd time, Jonas' 2nd time, and Emmy's 1st time at a theater.
After the movie we went to check out the new Cabela's that has opened up there. While not quite as grand as the one in Utah, it's a neat store and we enjoyed it.
Miles, of course, wanted this fish pillow. The kid wants everything. And believe me, I do not exaggerate when I say everything.
It was hot, though - like close to 100? So the kids had to break often in the shade and enjoy some juicy apples.
Here they are playing "train." I do love my kids (even though I am hot, tired, and oh-so-grouchy at them today).
After the park we went to Wendy's for some free junior frostys - I had some coupons, how nice. Then we headed back home. Emmy was asleep in less than 5 minutes. Miles 20 minutes. Jonas 40 minutes.
It was a fun day. I'm such a homebody and most of our days are spent in our backyard, or biking to the library or park or the new Great Harvest that opened a few blocks from our home (for free slices of course!). I do love being home, but it was good for all of us to go out and enjoy something and somewhere else.
