My wonderful MIL had all of the grand kids at her house tonight (except our 2 year old) and so Josh asked me on a date (yep, he asked and I said yes...he was lucky :) We took our 2 year old with us to dinner, which is always an experience and then dropped him off with a babysitter while we headed to a movie.
For the first time in forever he didn't freak out when we left him. I rarely leave him with babysitters because of the freak out. Not only that, but I had just taken pictures of all of the grand kids on Josh's side and McKay WOULD NOT be happy for the group picture. He is crying like crazy in them. It might have had something to do with a really cool babysitter, and it might have had something to do with the fact that he was watching The Backyardigans when we left. Either way, we left a happy boy and came home to a sound asleep boy. Serious brownie points for the babysitter.
We haven't been to a movie in a while. We got our standard popcorn and Slurpee (a must) and headed in. I have to admit that I like the movie previews as much as the movie itself. For some strange reason I always find myself secretly hoping a preview for a new Harry Potter movie will show. I think I am still going through withdrawals. But they did show one for the new Bourne movie, which if any of you follow this blog know that I LOVE a good action movie. I am a big Bourne fan and so pretty excited about that coming up. You are too right? I thought so.
We ended up watching the new Spiderman movie which I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about. My poor husband. Sometimes I am a movie cynic. We were watching a lot of what was in the other movie and I kept leaning over saying "I feel like we are watching the same movie with different actors." Good thing he loves me because I might not have been asked out again. ANYWAY...after the beginning establishing plot thing that they have to have the same as the other movie, it got REALLY good and it was in 3-D, so poor Josh ended the movie with bruises on his arm from where I held on so tight. A+ movie for me.
Now I need to go and pack because tomorrow I get on a plane and head to sunny California to visit my cute sister who moved there a few months ago. I CAN'T WAIT! We are planning some serious shopping, eating (on the lookout for a Sprinkles) and I get to take their 1 year anniversary pictures, which will be fun. It is only a weekend trip so we are packing in what we can. I am not sure I will know what to do with myself without kids in tow, but I am sure I will figure it out ;) You follow my adventure on Instagram (emily7n). Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
