Girls Night!

So last Friday Jimmy came home early from work and said he wanted me to have some time with Grace and Lexi, just the girls and he thought going to see Kung Fu Panda would be fun. So we got our tickets off of Fandango and headed to the movies! We decided to surprise the girls and so I didn't tell them where we were going. Alexis is old enough that once we got close to the theater she knew what we were doing but still let Grace try and guess! They were so excited when they found out what we were there to see, we got our treats and then went to find some seats! We were lucky to find three together in a pretty good spot because it was packed! The movie was AWESOME! I don't know the last time I laughed that hard watching an animated show. The best part was looking over at my girls and seeing them laugh hysterically and trying to take a mental picture so when they are teenagers and too cool to hang out with their mom I will be able to remember back. Grace was clapping and reacting to all the fighting scenes and the people around us were laughing at Grace. At the end everyone clapped which I loved because there aren't too many movies these days that are worth clapping at! On the drive home the girls were talking about which character they were and who Jimmy & I were. Grace is Tigress, Lexi is Viper, I am Shifu, James is Monkey and they decided that Daddy is Po the panda! It was a great night and it reminded me that I need to do that more often with them.

That's such a nice idea. I should do more stuff like that. Thanks for a review of the movie too- I was wondering if it was any good! :)
