One of my favorite movies is "Annie," and one of my favorite scenes is when Daddy Warbucks takes her to the movies for the first time. You can see in her eyes the wonderment and innocence as she takes it all in.
Last night, we took the whole family to see Despicable Me 2, and it was the first for Reese and Truett (and Avery, too). We are blessed with an amazing refurbished old movie theater, The Ritz, in Wellington, just 30 miles north of us. McH's grandmother lives there, so it's even handier to be able to see her and go to the movies, as well.
The whole Jenkins gang, including Rich's parents, brother and SIL, our two nephews, Rich's grandmother, and our family of five, all met at the theater. It was a great night, and I highly recommend seeing DM2. It was hilarious and full of nuances for adults. Reese and Truett did really well, considering it was almost their bedtime and they were asked to sit still for almost two hours. They did a lot of musical lapping between us and the rest of the family, and other than a couple of loud exclamations about things in the movie, they were relatively quiet. So fun!
