Good Friday...

The kids and I used to go do "stuff" together on a regular basis. Unfortunately as they have gotten older, and busier, we don't get to do as much as we used to. So we made a date for today...lunch and a movie. We had been wanting to go see Hop and thought today would be the perfect opportunity.

As they rolled out of bed (at 10am) I pushed them to get out the door and off we went. Because it's Good Friday and we observe Lent we decided to eat at the Olive Garden...salad, breadsticks and bruschetta...YUM! Then off to the movie...too bad I forgot my real camera and could only take a pic with my camera. Hop was good! It was certainly a children's movie but we really enjoyed it. The picture is of the jelly bean fountain in the candy factory...we want one!!!

If you get an opportunity you should go see it...I want to see Ringo next, yes I like animated films.

I'm so glad you got the time to spend together and that you had a wonderful day. These are the things you'll all remember forever....the little moments doing simple, happy things with each other. :)
