Weekend of Firsts

November 21, 2011

This weekend we had Alexa’s very very first movie theater experience and sleepover.

We woke up on Saturday morning and went to an early showing of Happy Feet Two.  Alexa ADORES the first movie so we wanted to show her its sequel on the big screen.  She enjoyed it but we didn’t make it through the entire movie.  Almost, but not completely.  Next time we’ll show up a little later (the previews were just TOO long) and we’ll bring our own snacks.

Later that evening Alexa’s cousin Cammie spent the night while her parents celebrated another birthday for Uncle EJ.  The girls had a wonderful time playing dress-up, eating Chinese takeout, and then attempting to sleep.  Ok, well maybe Alexa had a better time with that last bit.  She stayed up WAY WAY too late trying to talk to Cammie.  Her poor cousin just wanted to go to bed.  Still, a big success since both girls did end up sleeping and no one lost their mind in the process ;D

On Sunday we had a big day planned.  First a round of chocolate chip mickey mouse pancakes at our favorite local diner.  Then we were OFF to the Liberty Science Center!  We spent a few hours running from exhibit to exhibit.  The girls had a blast!  We had a short break for lunch then more playtime in the toddler-only space.  When it was time to go the girls did NOT want to leave!

To be fair it was a cranky ride home with two over-tired little ones (and an uncomfy pregnant lady LOL!!), but it was a great day and a great weekend!  We hope to be able to do it again at least once more before our next baby joins in on the fun.

    So adorable! Westley loves the movies, and you’re absolutely right: arriving a little on the later side makes a lot of difference.

      I thought that most movies started on time these days due to complaints about ridiculously long previews. I guess that doesn’t hold true for kid movies. Seriously 15 minutes of previews! We’ll most likely show up a little late next time and sit way in the back so she can move around and leave a few times without bothering everyone.

    The Liberty Science Center is awesome! Sounds like a fun weekend.

      It’s so awesome, and with all the remodels in the last few years it’s really great for kids of all ages! There’s wasn’t one exhibit that we went into that didn’t amaze them both in so many ways. Peter gets huge discounts through his company so we’ll be back many many times.
