At the Movies
My kids love going to the movies.
I remember when Tyler was two and my wife took him to his first movie, it was Barnyard. Every parent gets a little nervous about taking their kids to the movies for the first time. Are they going to sit still for that long? Are they going to be THAT kid and put up a fuss for the entire movie? Will that make you THAT parent that has to drag a kid kicking and screaming out of a crowded movie theater?
Fortunately for us our kids have not been like that.
We always arm them with the biggest tub of popcorn possible and make sure that we get free refills whenever we can. Of course I end up eating way more popcorn than I probably should, but we don't go to the movies everyday so I can justify it. We also throw in a little candy, so any possible meltdown happens AFTER the movie is over.
The movie experience has evolved for us over the years. It used to be that we would only take the kids to animated features like Toy Story, Cars, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Now the kids are into movies like Iron Man and Captain America. It really has made going to the movies that much more enjoyable for ALL of us. As much as the G rated movies are cute, sometimes you just need that thrilling action of the PG-13 ones. Now that they like going to those, I don't have to go to the movies by myself to get that fix.
Now that the fall movie season is kicking off with the long awaited release of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, to get us all in the mood, my friends at MovieTickets.com are giving away $50 in movie tickets and a DVD of the first Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
