Yesterday we took Emma and Abby to see their first movie in the theater. It was supposed to be an outing with all the kids, but Stacie's ended up not being able to go. Since there was no other time for all of us to go, we decided to venture out with just the two little girls.
The popcorn and soda part was a huge success, the movie part-
not so much.
The Princess and the Frog was playing at the dollar theater, so we figured even if they didn't like the whole theater experience it would only cost a couple bucks. Good choice. The movie probably wasn't the best choice. It held the girls' attention for a grand total of about five minutes. They did like sitting in the theater seats, munching on popcorn, and sipping on a theater-sized, sugary soda though. Can't blame them for that. As it was already loud in the theater, they didn't quite get the idea of volume control either. They kept calling out to each other and yelling loudly whenever one held a snack that the other wanted. Aaaaand walking back and forth in our aisle, hanging on the seats in front of us. Whoops. I'm sure the kids in those seats were very sad to see us go about halfway through the movie. When the snacks stopped flowing both girls said it was time to go bye-bye. No objections from these two mommas or gramma.
