Theater munchkins

Yesterday we took the kids to a movie theater for the first time in their lives. Since they’re 6, 4, and 2 (and an infant), we figured they’d handle it okay. Besides, it was the Lego Movie. What’s not to like?

I think mostly they were overwhelmed. When we opened the door and walked into our dark theater, the kids lagged back, afraid to go in there. Fortunately Daddy led the way. The only spot with six seats together was the top row.

So we hoofed it up the stairs with the kids tripping, even with the lines of lights on each step. By the top, they were very uneasy–they knew they were high up, but they couldn’t see!

We fumbled into our seats and watched the movie. Everyone sat nicely and the baby obligingly slept through the whole thing. (Awesome movie, by the way.)

Once the movie ended and the lights came on, they handled things much better.

Then we came home and built Legos for the rest of the afternoon. 🙂

By the way, go see the Lego Movie. It’s fun, fun, fun.

  1. Now they will want to go all of the time. It makes me so happy they got to go do this, what fun too that they built legos all afternoon.
    I am so glad you enjoyed the movie. So good too that the baby slept.
