So We Went to the Movies… We Did!!!

Do you remember the first movie you ever went too? For the longest time I have wanted to take all my kids to the movies… it is time!!! So when we were invited to the movies I grabbed the chance with both hands… and much as I wanted to keep it a secret until the day… I cracked and had to tell. Needless to say there was dancing and singing in the streets… loads of joy and sleepless nights packed with excitement as it got closer and closer to the event.

They are all trying to smile like the lead – Flint

The fact that they were going to an actual real live movie – in the dark was quite enough excitement… and then they discovered an ocean of popcorn… the heady joy…

I thought some folk would be a little nervous… you know dark, surround sound, 3D things flying at you… a whole new experience… None of that, they laughed hysterically at all the parts I thought were scary… they just about exploded with joy during the funny parts – and there were funny parts.

Yuppie Chef, you guys are the best, thank you for making dreams come true and the fabulous time at the movies. We totally loved our trip to the movies.



This is not a sponsored blog post, and we were not asked or paid to write a post. Yuppie Chef did provide us with tickets, but all the opinions are, as usual, totally ours. We wrote the post because we had such a ball and thought our readers might enjoy drawing some “foodimals” with us this weekend.
