In a big family, you don’t visit the movie theater very often. It’s simply too expensive, too hard to schedule and nearly impossible to find a movie everyone enjoys. But even in our non-cable TV household we haven’t escaped the popularity of Hannah Montana and even more importantly, the rumor that Taylor Swift appears in Hannah’s new movie.
So as the house settled and the rain poured down last night, I packed up the littles and drove to Gateway for the 7:20 showing.
“We haven’t had dinner!” Gabe exclaimed at the first stoplight.
“I’ll buy you Happy Meals.” I replied.
“With toys?” Mary hasn’t discovered that every Happy Meal includes a toy.
“Yep, it’s just a night to spoil the little kids.”
Gabe and Mary immediately broke into a chorus, “Spoiled little kids night! Spoiled little kids night! Oh yeah, oh yeah!”
ate Happy Meals
in the food court
with a toy
next to the ride-on cars
which Mary had the foresight to bring 3 quarters to feed the machine(she knows I’ll never be that nice)
and discovered that the little vehicles are more fun sitting still.
Rode up and down the escalator 3 times.
Didn’t do any shopping.
Saw all the previews.
Laughed through the whole movie.
And downloaded, “Hoedown Throwdown” the minute we got home.
We’re practicin’. Oh yeah. Oh yeah.
(Mary’s review: “It was OK. Wish the movie had more Taylor Swift and less of that Hannah girl.”)
