Well, last night went well. We were supposed to pick Sarah up before the movie, but her mom called and said they would just meet us in the lobby. Adam still kept trying to leave early though, I guess getting there way early means she will too?! LOL I know, he was just excited.
We got there and got in the ticket line to find out "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" was already sold out! :( Sarah picked the movie, but I think she had a little help from Adam coaxing her! LOL Anyway, this movie was only showing at 6:30 and 9:45 so only two other movies were scheduled to begin before 7:30, "27 Dresses" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks." Guess which one we ended up seeing? You guessed right, "Alvin and the Chipmunks." Adam was not about to watch "27 Dresses!" Never mind the fact he had already seen the movie, he did not want to watch a chick flick. Shawn didn't argue with him either I noticed!
Adam's friend Griffin showed up and sat down right with him and Sarah. Shawn and I sat four rows back. As nice as it sounds to pick another movie and leave them alone, I chose not to leave them alone! So we sat behind them a few rows and shortly into the movie Adam managed to run Griffin off so it was just him and Sarah again! Anybody remember the old yawn and stretch your arm routine to where it just happens to be around the girl?! (yeah I feel old saying that) Anyway, I'm not sure where he learned it, but he used it! I really thought it was sweet though.
They kept singing annoyingly during the movie, but there were so many kids in the theater that nobody seemed to mind! At one point though they thought they would sneak out to the lobby. Why? I don't know, I went out and they were talking to another group of kids. They came right back in though and proceeded to talk for most of the movie. I hope Sarah really didn't want to watch it! LOL
After the movie we went to the game room where they battled each other in Dynamo Hockey and Sarah called her dad. She beat Adam once, he killed her in the game after that! We waited in the lobby for her dad. While there, there were so many kids mingling around, apparently their parents had dropped them off! Are these people crazy?! Maybe I'm just paranoid, but there is no way I would just drop my son off and leave him unchaperoned, but that's beside the point! When her dad got there, Adam wanted to hug her bye but decided not to try with her dad right there! It was cute!
Anyway, he had a great time, I'm so glad! I actually thought the movie was cute, so it wasn't a waste of money or time, I actually had a good time. Now if I could just go on all of Adam's dates! I know I eventually have to let him grow up and go on his own, but for now he's still 12 and too young!
P.S. I just added the music last night Lucille, you didn't miss anything! Thanks for caring.
