This week I have something really fun to share! (No, I'm not pregnant...)
On Saturday, LeeAnn from The Life of Rylie...And Bryce Too! and I took our girls to see the Kidtoon Films "movie" Olivia and the Great Outdoors (it was really just a series of Olivia episodes, but enjoyable for the kids for sure!) at a theater about an hour south of us. It was a super fun girly road trip!
As soon as we arrived at the theater and got the girls out of the car, they grabbed each others hands and walked together like the best friends that they are!
Then in the theater, they sat next to each other and "cheesed" for a couple of cute photos.
This was Angelica's first trip to the movies and I was really pleased with how well it went. She stayed seated until the about the last 5 minutes of the theater. She's a pretty high maintenance kiddo so I figured she'd make a ton of noise, kick chairs, run around screaming and so on (and believe me, the girls both did their fair share of that on the car ride and in the theater lobby)...
|Before the movie, in the lobby, looking at a Kung Fu Panda poster and screaming "Ahhh! The bear is going to get us!"|
|Angelica has her drink...Rylie has her popcorn. Maybe this is a fun spin-off of Rebecca Black's Friday? "Gotta have my drink, gotta have popcorn..."|
When they were done, we headed back home and made a stop at Chick Fil A, where Brian and Bryce joined us and the kids all played on the playground.
|That little dude is SO cute!|
Sadly, I didn't get many good photos of them there, except this one I took of Angelica when we were leaving, which shows how much fun they had. Look at how sweaty she got!
We were also treated to some fireworks outside of LeeAnn and Brian's house! We weren't sure where they were coming from, but Angelica LOVED them, which bodes well for the 4th of July...last year the fireworks scared her and she snuggled close to me and kept saying she was scared. The fireworks we saw on Saturday were just amazing to her. She kept saying, "Oooh, that's so PRETTY!" I don't have photos of that, either, but it did make me happy that she's now over her fear and can enjoy the beauty of a fireworks display!
By the time we got home, Angelica and I were WIPED OUT. Since she got so sweaty, I wanted to give her a quick bath...she started to fall asleep on the couch in the few minutes it took me just to run the water...so I woke her up, rinsed her off really quick and then put her to bed.
The next morning, Angelica woke up and immediately started telling her daddy all the fun he missed. She talked his ear off about it and he was so glad to hear how much fun we had (especially since he had to work...).
It was such a fantastic day...it was seriously the most fun I've had in awhile. We'll have to do this again SOON!
Does your kid love Olivia? If so, Kidtoon Films is sponsoring an awesome giveaway on LeeAnn's blog. You could win an Olivia prize pack! The giveaway ends on 5/31 so there's still plenty of time to get those entries in!
