A Night at the Movies

As I mentioned in a previous post, I went to work at SIX am on Saturday. That just about wore me out. But, since I was away from Madi all day I wanted to do something special with her when I got off.

So, Saturday night Justin, Madi, and I went to dinner at Fazoli's (a "fast food" Italian restaurant). Madi colored a picture and hung it on the wall there while Justin and I ate our pasta.  It was a really nice family dinner. After, Madi and I dropped Justin off at one movie theater and then we went to another one a few blocks away to see our movie. We went to see Finding Nemo in 3D! This was Madi's first 3D movie. I was kind of nervous that she wouldn't like it or it would scare her having things appear right in front of her face. (I even asked for some opinions via twitter beforehand.) Well, she did great! She absolutely loved it!

Madi insisted on packing her dinner and eating it in the movie (Sorry movie theater. I bought candy so that should help against my case...right?) so she enjoyed a cheese sandwich and bunny cookies  while watching Nemo. :) We had so much fun wearing the glasses and laughing at the Despicable Me preview. That alone was worth the extra money for 3D. Just hearing her laugh at it was awesome!

*two people commented on her shirt & told us they go to our church too! 
I thought that was too cool!

I just love doing things like this with my girl. I think having special mommy/daughter and daddy/daughter time is so important for all of us. I can't wait for our next movie date together!

What fun things do you do with your kids? Have you been to a 3D movie? What'd you think?

We went to see the Lion King in 3D. It just so happened I was sick halfway through, so that's all I remember.

I LOVE Despicable Me! And of course I love her t-shirt :)
