At The Movies

4.09.2010


Today is the last day a spring break.  We usually spend the week in California, where we lounge around the pool, spend time at the beach, soak up every ounce of ocean air- and then casually look at houses and try to justify actually packing up and moving our happy life to better weather.

This year, we did none of that.  And through the snow and crappy weather, I lived to promise Aaron and the kids that we will NEVER stay in Utah for spring break ever again. Ever, ever, ever.

We had two days of "Fun Mom" though.  On Wednesday, I took the kids to see that Dragon movie in 3D.  And from the pictures you can tell it was serious business.  I even splurged and treated them to the Theater Kids Meal.  Actually, I went all out, and we had lunch at the Thanksgiving Point Deli, and then walked around the entry of the Dinosauer Museum, before movie time ... we had a good 90 minutes to kill. And I probably spent just as much money on our outing.

Thursday, I took them to the park in Alpine, also known as "Rubber Park".   Max and Charlie lasted a whole 15 minutes before they were in timeout for yelling at each other on the slide.  And then it was only 30 more minutes before they were all on my blanket crying because they were hungry and thirsty.

Anyway, when I took these pictures and sent them to Aaron, I also included a note that said "having the best time with these boys." It was one of those "Good Days".  And I loved every minute of it. 

I stayed in Utah for Spring Break, and all I got was dumb snow, AND the best time with my kids.

Gotta love the "good days"...and also essential to text hubbies about them as well. I think otherwise they may suspect we never have them. :) How was the dragon movie? I was thinking about taking Kya (4) and Wyatt (barely3).
