First big boy movie!

We took the boys to their first-ever-movie-in-a-theater on Saturday. We hit up the $1 movies just in case they were stinkers. That way, we wouldn't be out a lot of money (or so we thought) if we needed to leave before the end of the movie.

Turns out, the $1 movies are only $1 on Tuesdays. On all other days, it's $1.50-$2.50 plus the cost of 3-D glasses. (Of course, we were going to a 3-D. The regular version was sold-out.) So, our $4 movie ended up costing $14 just to get in, not to mention the popcorn, licorice, and drink. I'm rather irritated by this since the newspaper says NOTHING of these additional fees.

Anyway, the boys were ANGELS! They were SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good for the ENTIRE movie, and they had even missed naptime. They had to sit on our laps because the seat backs were too high for them to see over, but they were outstanding. They had a great time, too. I'm so proud of them! We're going to make movie-night a monthly thing (on Tuesdays, of course) now that we know they are capable of being good in public for that long.
