We celebrated Jon's birthday this weekend. The girls were so excited about it. It's lovely that they get just as much enjoyment out of other peoples birthdays as they do their own.
Jon and I were both pretty sore and tired yesterday, his excesses due to soccer and mine due to my Saturday morning long run so we decided a trip to the movies might be nice.
On the way, we were discussing when was the last time we had been to the movies as a whole family. Can you believe never?
We were going to see Mr Popper Penguins until we realised that Jim Carrey was in it. I can't stand him, and I really don't think I could have managed a full movie. We looked at Captain America and found that IMDB has rated it PG - 13 and the parental guide didn't look too bad. A few scary bits but for my girls who are major Dr Who fans, probably ok. But - the cinema has it rated M.
M or Jim Carrey. Sorry to say but Mr Popper's Penguins was never in with a chance.
Captain America it was. Vmax and 3D. The girls loved it, though didn't really understand it. For me, it was ok. Vmax was nice and I only got nauseous twice from the 3D.
Baskin Robbins afterwards for icecream and home for a roast beef dinner and birthday cake.
