Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry

The Boys’ First Movie in a Movie Theater

We have had quite the exciting day today. At 7:30am, our nanny Coco called and said she couldn't make it in, since her daughter Tiffy was in labor and was due to give birth. Coco was headed to SF to look after Tyler (a.k.a. the T-Man), Tiffy's 2 year-old, while Tiffy was in the hospital.

Since we found ourselves in the position of juggling childcare between Mom-o and Dad-o, after our morning meetings we thought we'd treat the guys to a viewing of Pixar's "Cars 2" at the movie theater. The boys were so excited they couldn't WAIT to get into the Ocho and head for the show. (We bought tickets online early, so we had about 2 hours of "when do we leave for the movie?" to deal with. And we've been hearing Henry say "I'm Mater, Dad-o" for weeks on end!)

This was our first visit to a movie theater with the guys, and we all love the Cars characters, so the four of us were pretty jazzed. Once we got out of the car and walked towards the box office, Finny kept saying "I'm so happy this is my first time seeing a movie at the movie theater! I'm so excited!" Not surprisingly, once we made our way towards the theater, Finny spied the popcorn, so of course we had to get a big bag to snack on. He was very concerned that I was giving too much of it to Henry and Dad-o, and that there wouldn't be enough left for him (Impossible! It was an enormous bag!)

We settled in to watch the movie (Hen and Finno on booster seats--thanks AMC Mercado!), and both boys were absolutely rapt. Henry got a little freaked when there was fire in one scene, and had to take a couple short breaks, but Finny hung in there for the entire movie, only moving to come sit on my lap halfway through. They both really enjoyed it--and I get the feeling Finny's going to be asking to go to a lot more movies! The movie, by the way, was a lot of fun--another great flick by the Pixar gang!
