We went to the movies!!

A local movie theater offers free kid movies every Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the summer. Soooooooo....Jase and I ventured off to the movies. I had already told myself that it would probably be disasterous and wouldn't last a minute. But to my surprise he lasted an hour and a half!!!!!!! I brought his little booster seat that he eats in and plopped him right in it. At first he was nervous and a little upset but I gave him a sip of his Sprite and he calmed right down. He sucked on his bobo, had his backpack on and watched the show. When the movie came on and the lights went out he opened his eyes real big and excited. He sat in the seat all by himself and after about 30 minutes he leaned his head on my arm. He stayed like that for a while until I pulled him out of his chair and sat him on my lap. He only ate a couple of pieces of his popcorn and told me yuck. At one point I tried to offer him gummy bears during the movie and he moved my hand out of his way. I wasn't sure if he would even like the movie because it was not a cartoon. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks. I forgot my camera so I took this photo with my phone. What a great time we had!

That is so great...look at that face. It says it all.

I remember the first movie we took Michael to. He was 8 mos old and slept right thru the movie..The movie: The Persidio. Can you imagine that, not any of the noise could rock his sleep.
love titi Liany

WOW! That's awesome!!! That is so fun, and even better that he totally loved it! I love that he calmed right down with his Sprite :) and said "yuck" with the popcorn! The picture is a really good one...looks like he's clapping! :) What fun it is to have something else like this to do with Jase...special mommy-Jase time! Well, you got me all excited to take Ava to the movies. Not now, of course...unless it's Nemo!

That's so awesome.

I love that photo. It's pure excitement. I like that he has his little teddy bear "back pack" on and he's sitting in his booster seat.
