When Tom asked me a few weeks ago if we should go, I hesitated about .00009th of a second in saying - uh, yeah! After all, I've wanted to go there and it's free and it'll be the girls first movie theater experience. If it is bad - we just leave (and it'd be guilt free since it's free). So off we went to see Cars 2.
I should mention here that Megan has only seen 2 full length movies - Cinderella and Tangled. And she knows NOTHING about Cars - other than they talk. So I wasn't sure if she'd be into it. But she loved it. I think the overall experience was what she loved the most.... sitting in a big chair, lounging and getting to eat food and popcorn and someone bringing her sprite refills during the whole movie. Oh yeah -that life!
And Nicole... well I was wondering how my 19 month old would sit through a full length film. I had visions of spending my evening walking the hallway outside the theater. But you'd be amazed at how much pizza she can put away. Add some lemonade and you are already 1/2 way through the film. She laughed, screamed (oops), and danced (that was hysterical) - and made it through the whole movie. She was in constant motion - but hey, it was a theater full of kids and parents and it wasn't quiet.... so we were good!
Did I mention that it was in 3-D?
Not that we actually watched it in 3-D.... Megan didn't like the glasses, actually they gave me a headache, and whenever I did put them on Nicole promptly ripped them off and tried to give them to Daddy - since everyone knows that only Daddy wears glasses.
On the way home I asked Megan what the best part of the night was - the screen? Getting to eat dinner while watching a movie? The sprite? The popcorn?....
