Two of our local theaters play free family movies 3 mornings a week during the summer and I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try it out with her...and see how it went.
We met our neighbor Avery, her dad John, and her cousin Brielle at the theater and, since we really hadn't done very good planning, we ended up in the VERY FRONT (you know...the area WAYYYY up front of the theater seating....the seats that are actually ON the floor). Not optimal...but still...a free movie is a free movie so we decided to tough it out.
The movie we picked was "Bee Movie" and I thought it looked really cute and right up her alley! She had her snacks, she had her drink, she had her comfy seat, she was R-E-A-D-Y.
Long story short...it lasted about 10 minutes and then she was asking "Is it almost over??"
No CLUE where she get's this short attention span ;). We left about 3/4 of the way through (I just couldn't take the fidgeting, exasperated sighs and "Mooooommmmy's" and longer.
She and I headed over to Johnny Rockets for some yummy grilled cheese sandwiches
and then I dropped her off at Grandma Mary's so that I could head in to work.
We had fun...but I don't really know when we'll be tackling the movies with her again.
I guess I should be glad that she's not the movie watching/couch potato type...right?? ;)

Poor little guy has a bad cold (so does Mommy) and we've been miserable together for the past day or so.
He's currently got one tooth (on the bottom) but I have a feeling more will be showing themselves soon as he continues to drool like crazy. No crawling yet but he is able to get himself wherever his heart desires by rolling and scooting around on the floor. He still loves his exersaucer and swing and is starting to enjoy his baby food a little more each day. His current favorites are green beans, peas, pears, and applesauce. We haven't tried meat yet although the pediatrician gave us the green light at his 6 month appointment (I'm waiting until he's doing better with the fruits and veggies). He continues to sleep well at night (even with a cold!) and is still the happiest, smiliest, snuggliest (is that a word) baby I've ever known. I couldn't have asked for better kids!!
We are all currently anxiously awaiting news on the arrival of baby #2 for my brother and sister-in-law. We need to hurry up and get well so we can go up to greet the newest family member when he/she arrives (it's a surprise!!). Should be any day now!!

"OHHHHH...yes...of course you can have some SQUIRREL ICE CREAM!!"
Nothing better than the thought of frozen roadkill in a cup to end the day. ;)

Ty and Elaine AFTER a few shots. He insisted on wearing the tiara. ;)
Ty talked Jenna into eating steak (we couldn't believe it). Her reward....a ride on his shoulders around the parking lot. What a good sport!!
We had a blast! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELAINE!!

We did the bathtub pics of Jenna at about the same age....so I had to do these...
I couldn't locate Jenna's studio bathtub shots...but I did find these REAL shots of her in the tub at about 6 months. See any resemblance??
I loved these little wagon shots...
My absolute favorite....
We won't talk about what he was doing here....
Of course we had to do a few with Jenna too. I thought the swimsuit/beach idea was pretty cute.
It's not easy getting TWO young kids to look at the camera and smile at the same time!!
We are going to have Jenna's 4 year pictures done tomorrow morning. I will post those as soon as I have them back!
