Yesterday we went and saw Shrek 4.
To quote Alana, "That. Movie. Was. Awesome."
I mostly agree with her. It was pretty good. Could've been longer. But it was funny.
Rumpelstiltskin was pretty good. I think I need to take a cue from him and get myself an angry wig. Maybe people will take me more seriously when I'm mad if I have an angry wig.
Alana was extra happy that she got to see her favorite part from the commercials twice. You know the annoying little kid in the preview who says, "I love you Daddy!" That's her favorite part. And they played it twice.
And Ava went to sleep half way through. So I got to watch the movie in peace. Even if she smelled like movie theater pickles.
I do have some tips for enjoying the movie though. Don't go with a headcold or your in-laws. Sinus headache + mother-in-law = grouchy me. Just ask David. He'll tell you.
Other tips for enjoying the movie. Eat a delicious flatbread sandwich from Subway right before. Mmmm. And then sneak in a bunch of cookies. Way better than candy. Diaper bags are so useful sometimes.
In other Saturday news: Ava's new hairclip got lost at Target. I just bought it. I was a little grouchy about that. It would've been different if I was the one carrying her when it got lost. But I was in a different part of the store. I don't enjoy spending an hour in the toy section of Target, so I wandered off to look at fun stuff.
Also: Alana got Gator Golf. She is now obsessed with that game. And she's no golf prodigy. But neither am I so I can't really judge.
Next on my list of kids movies I have to see: Toy Story 3. Alana is hyped. She already has her Toy Story shirt from Old Navy. She even wore it to see Shrek.
