Do you all remember your very first movie theater experience?
Daddy Perks and I both love to see movies, and although we don’t get out to see them nearly as much as we used to-we were very excited to take Henry to see Cars 2 earlier this summer.
It was extra special to spend some one-on-one time with Henry as we are used to being a family of four these days.
Henry was absolutely enamored with the theater and it was so fun to experience something so simple through his eyes.
That’s right. We saw the movie at 9:50 AM.
We figured it’d be mostly families there this early in the morning.
And yes. We still got a large popcorn.
And a large coke. But that was just for Daddy Perks and I.
When we first entered the theater, Henry was totally enthralled.
He sat perfectly in his seat for about 50 mintues, eating popcorn, saying ‘Vroom Vroom” and smiling at both of us.
Then he got a bit antsy and alternated between sitting in our laps.
And then he was done.
We ended up missing the last 30 minutes of the movie (which was entirely too long to begin with.)
But Henry had a total blast running throughout the hallways…
He was very curious about all the posters.
And then he happened upon something…
A giant cat wearing a cape.
Also known as Puss ‘N Boots, who apparently is leaving Shrek behind to star in his own feature length film.
Anyways, I’m pretty sure Henry enjoyed this cardboard cut-out almost as much as the movie.
It’s the little things, right?
Anyways, as we walked out of the theater Daddy Perks and I looked at each other and both said…
“For his first time…all in all-a success.”
Later that day we hung out with friends, and one of them snapped a shot of the entire Perkins clan:
Happy Tuesday from our family to yours 🙂
