at the cinema
My family and I enjoy watching movies on weekends. Also, if there is an interesting animated movie for kids, we watch it together on Saturdays. Like this afternoon, we watched the movie Sing. My darling daughter wanted to watch The Space Between Us. But it is not appropriate for her age so I convinced her to watch something else. Luckily, Sing is still playing in the cinema in Wylie.
I thought the movie would be one of those lame animated movies. But, because it’s a musical and had a good song list (soundtrack), K and I enjoyed it. Sing was an entertaining movie with good humor in it. The animal characters sang their songs with full emotion. The story line was good.
K had a great time. She loves watching movies.
It is another birthday celebration this month. It’s Mom’s birthday. Since we didn’t come over last weekend, K and I drove this afternoon to Tyler to visit our beloved folks. And also to be with the family since K and I will be traveling and will be gone for eight weeks for our vacation. We had a pretty nice plan during our visit and birthday celebration. First was watching Zootopia with Mom and a cousin JA. He’s already on Spring break. K was looking forward to this movie since it’s first trailer show when we saw the Inside Out movie last year. Cousin SR had gone to Dallas with her mom and dad, cousin P was in school, and Paw-Paw was busy installing the new microwave oven he bought from Lowe’s, so only the four of us went to watch the animated movie from Disney.
We watched the Zootopia movie at Studio Movie Grill. It’s one of those cinema chain where you can dine inside the theater. We ordered popcorn and a few drinks for us. To me, I rate the service 3 out of 5 stars. Because it took a while before our orders served. Well, I understand the busy work because there were so many viewers in the theater. But you have to really watch it when you order drinks especially for your kids. I ordered Strawberry Icee. I did repeat the order more than twice to the server. When it was served, it tasted different. I am pretty sure it was not Strawberry Icee. I don’t know if there was a mess up with the orders or what, but I am pretty sure that the drink they served wasn’t the one I ordered. So Mom complained about it. They took off that particular drink from the bill. I suggest that you should take the first sip of your kids’ drinks when you’re at the movies. It’s dark in the theater you know.
Anyway, my daughter liked the movie. It was funny and thrilling. My favorite funny part was when Officer Hopps and Nick went to the DMV where sloths are the employees. You have to see the movie to find out why. 🙂 Okay, second in the plan was to let K play with her cousins. That’s always in my agenda whenever we come visit. Lastly, was to spend the night so we have more time with Mom and Dad. K loves being with her grandparents.
Bad weather started coming this morning – thunderstorms, heavy rains, and strong winds. There’s a Flood Warning everywhere until Friday. It was raining hard when we got out of the cinema. It’s getting nasty so we will just go home tomorrow.
Na-na calling to wish DD a happy birthday.
It was a chilly day Saturday but we had a wonderful day spending it with my sister-in-law’s family as we celebrated my darling daughter’s birthday. We came over to her house for a visit. She surprised us with a little birthday party for DD at her house. Thanks for the birthday balloons that she and her husband provided. My little one was very happy.
Na-na and my dear husband weren’t able to join us at the birthday party because they were both not feeling well. So only me and DD traveled to her aunt’s house and Paw-Paw came over to join us there. DD’s cousins were so excited and glad that she celebrated her birthday with them and we got to spend the night at their house. Oh how they played and played. Just having fun. Paw-Paw took a video of DD while she was blowing her candles because Na-na wanted to see how the party went. And she was very surprised that a little pony toy figure (from My Little Pony) was on top of her birthday cake. It was Rarity! She’s collecting those My Little Pony figures and finally she has one now.
Besides blowing the candles, opening presents is DD’s favorite. Most kids do, don’t you think? She received the toys and things she has been really really wished for and fascinated with. She also received some cute toddler clothes and greeting cards.

How To Train Your Dragon movie DVD. My daughter was so happy to get this for her own that she said, “Wow, I have this for my own forever and it doesn’t have a library sticker on it.”
My Little Pony – Rarity
I highly appreciated the party that her aunt organized. It was so sweet and my daughter had a great time with them.
It’s been a while since our last visit to the library. I got quite busy with other stuff so we missed a few story times since summer arrived. My cousin told me about an upcoming event for kids this week that involves arts and crafts activity and movie showing. So I registered my darling daughter to join and I found out that they are having a Pirate Day.
It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day event at the library. When I told my DD about the activity, she got very excited that she kept on talking about Jake and the Neverland pirates on Disney Junior. Then she kept asking where we going.
The event started with a movie about the Muppets at noon but we did not registered on that because I knew we won’t be able to be at the showing on time. So I just joined the 2 P.M. activity schedule. My cousin and her kids were already there when we arrived. The arts and crafts of the Pirate Day include pirate hats, skull necklaces, and eye patches.
DD in her pirate hat, eye patch, and skull necklace that she maded and decorated. She really enjoyed the day!
My darling daughter really had fun today! She and her cousin Audrey enjoy being together especially on events like this one. And guess who came to visit? It’s Capt. Jack Sparrow!
Of course, I won’t miss a photo with Captain Jack Sparrow. 🙂
Awww…I so heart Johnny Depp. He’s my ultimate crush (foreign celebrity). Movie time followed the arts and crafts. I thought it was cancelled because they the closed the kids’ story time room where the activity was held. Well, the movie showing was in the theater room across the lounge area of the library. It’s a Peter Pan movie and it wasn’t animated which I like better because the kids will see real actors and creatures on the screen. The cousins kept asking ‘what happen to who’ and ‘where they’re going’…sorts of stuff.
It was close to 5 P.M. when the movie was over and we were hungry. We had a little snack and headed to the department store to buy a bridal shower gift for the next day’s party.
All in all, we had a great Pirate Day and the kids had fun! That’s the most important.
I told my mother that I will send my niece and nephews Pixar Short Films DVD in the package that I will be shipping this month. Oh boy, I am definitely sure they will like it. The short films are very amusing. My honey and I liked it very much.
