Yesterday was my birthday, and since I spent it working all day at the market then cooking supper for the family when I got home, we celebrated today after church. (although Beth did show up at the market singing and honking the horn, complete with a cute birthday card, great gift, and a red velvet cake, thanks, Beth!)
We went to the German restaurant in town for buffet...it was packed! And delicious! Afterwards, we walked across the street to the local theater and watched a matinee of UP. It was the first time our kids went to the movies, and I think they liked it, even if parts of the movie didn't thrill them.
The movie itself was a great one with an awesome story. A couple "scary" scenes with barking dogs and a mean man had the kids burying their heads into our shoulders, but they couldn't stop from watching, and both recapped different parts of the movie for me at bedtime.
If you get a chance, go see it. While it is animated (Pixar), it is really more at an adult level...only in story lines with things that are usually way over the kids' heads (or at least more at a middle school and up level).
And for now...I gotta get some sleep!
