My parents asked if they could take Preston to the movies with them on Sunday. Preston loves going to the movies, so I knew he'd be all over going with Grandpa, Grandma, and Auntie Rissa!
The only hitch was that they were going to see a movie that I thought Preston would enjoy but it was not a cartoon. So I wasn't sure how well he'd sit through it. So we watched the preview a handful of times and each time Preston told me he wanted to go and he wanted to see it.
My parents picked him up at noon for the movie and he was practically bouncing off the walls to go. He'd been asking for hours when they were coming to get him!
They went to see Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Preston loved it! And the popcorn, icee, and candy that they bought him. Maybe that's why he likes going to the movies with Grandma so much, the food! He is definitely my son if that's the case!
I'm told that Preston sat through the whole thing and was absolutely riveted! He stayed in his seat the whole time, couldn't look away from the screen, and jumped a few times.
He came home talking about the "ba-sterious island" and how it was sinking. And going down fast. And who made it and who didn't. It was so cute to listen to him talk about it and see how much he understood it and what he loved about it. My big boy!
Plus while Preston was at the movies with Grandpa and Grandma, me and Brad got to go on a lunch date by ourselves! Yum!! Which was perfect because there was no way we were going to get to go out for Valentine's Day coming up, for some reason people want to spend that day with their Valentine and not babysitting their favorite four year old!
Thanks for taking Preston to the movies Mom and Dad, he had a blast!!
