Movies and playdates

I got to take the Little Big Fella to his first cinema experience yesterday!  Unfortunately we were running a little late, but otherwise it was a fun experience :-)

We watched Madagascar 3 and it was definitely entertaining for adults as well as kids (Lisa, this is for you... duh duh dada dada duh duh circus, duh duh dada dada duh duh afro, circus, afro, circus, afro, polka dot, polka dot, polka dot MOVE IT!).

We had to get popcorn and a drink (of course) and then the Little Big Fella decided he had to sit on my lap.  About 3/4 through the movie my legs started going numb so I had to get him to move to his own seat :-D

The Little Big Fella really enjoyed it!  I asked him later if he likes movies at home or movies at the cinema better and there was an emphatic "movies at the cinema!!!!" response.

We went with some friends so after the movie the kids played on the playground outside while the mums sat and had a chat.  We ended up playing with the same friends today for a couple of hours.  I love that our kids get along so well (most of the time) and that we get to have a bit of a break. 

We've also made some new friends with the family of the guy the Big Fella used to drive back and forth with while he was here training for 6 months.  They have a 5 year old boy and a 7 or 8 year old girl and the Little Big Fella loves to play with them at the park.  I think we'll have to have a playdate at home soon too :-)

Speaking of playdates, I'm having a hot rocks massage party here next week and I'm a little excited!  I've never had a hot rocks massage but hopefully it'll be a fun, pampering morning and the kids that come will get along really well and not be bored (and not freak the chickens out too much).

We've also got a double party to go to this weekend - a 4th birthday party followed by her mum's birthday BBQ.  Really looking forward to both.

And, the Little Big Fella starts his swimming lessons next week.  It'll be interesting to see how he goes after such a long break, and apparently the pool is rather chilly (he's used to a heated, indoor pool).

Fun and adventures a-plenty :-D
