Happy Fathers Day and First Day of Summer a Day Late

Yesterday was pretty busy. I didn't get a lot of time to blog. I did respond to my crazy amount of Facebook Happy Birthday messages though. 

My sister's, mom, day, and I went out to breakfast on Saturday. It was to celebrate Father's Day and my birthday. 

On Sunday we went to Jurassic World at 10. Tip: If you never go to movies in the morning, try it out. It was only $5 for each of us to get in. Recliner seats and all! What I loved the most was that the theater wasn't crazy busy!

Mica's still talking about the movie, "Mom, who was your favorite dinosaur?" "Dad, did (insert dinosaur's name here) die the way you thought he would?" I don't want to give the movie away. He's also been building dinosaurs out of Legos, and checking out Jurassic Park Lego sets in his Lego magazine. When he gets on something it's constant.

Isaak only stayed in his recliner seat for 1/4 of the movie. He ended up cuddling with me. He got scared. It's odd because he watched all 3 previous movies at home with us, and didn't seem scared. It's ok I enjoyed the cuddle time.

What Else We Did:
  • We went out to dinner at The Olive Garden. That kind of food doesn't always do the best with me, but it was my birthday, and Father's Day, so one time of the year - I made an exception.

  • I made raspberry lemonade cupcakes for my co-workers. We always bring in treats for birthdays.

  • We went to 2 places checking out prices for cell phones. I think that made me more nervous than picking out a car for some reason. I still don't have a Smart phone. I want to go to 1 more place before we decide what we're going to get. It's more about who we're going to get it from than what we're getting. Our current place - US Cellular wants to charge us more than Verizon, and put us in another contract, which Verizon wouldn't. That's what we're researching. The sale's people talk a bunch of talk I just don't understand. I have to say that Verizon kind of laid it out on the table with a sheet for us to look at, as to where US Cellular kept adding things, saying if I got a land line back again it would be cheaper. I'm like What?! I'll be getting a Smart Phone soonish. But I'm afraid US Cellular will be out.

  • We played Skip-Bo. That has to be one of my favorite card games right now. Isaak won, so he was happy.
  • Mica and I took turns reading Fried Green Tomatoes in the car. He needs to work on his Southern accent. I think I got it down pretty good from living in Georgia for 3 years. ;) Of course I can't fast forward a book, so they started talking about sex (nothing to explicit). I was ready to have a conversation if needed. We must have bored Isaak, he fell asleep.
  •  Mica wrote a skit for Dad, and Isaak wrote a skit for me. We got to watch 2 short plays. 
  • Isaak made a card for Dad, and a bracelet for me. 
  • Dad got me 2 boxes of Cheez-It Grooves, since I teased them about eating all my Cheez-It's. The cell phone is more my gift.
What did you do for Father's Day?

We saw that movie for parents night out. I liked it. Hubby felt it was similar to the others but I didn't think that much about it. Perhaps because it was PNO? ha. I DO love those recliner chairs they have at your theater! How cool is that?!?!

GG was sickly for Father's day but she did get to take Daddy out to TCBY. She had just a tad but they at least got to do something. She's really cuddly when she doesn't feel well and we both take advantage of that because otherwise she's is not.

Good luck with your search for a smart phone!

Our theaters don't have those reclining seats. They sure do look comfy!

I don't get sucked into a contract. I have an iPhone and I believe Verizon is my carrier. I pay $35 a month for phone, internet and texting. It's prefect for me! Good luck on your decision!

My little one got bored about half way into the movie, but my oldest LOVED it.

We got marc the phone from walmart family mobile (for blog review) he seems to really like it and there is no contract. It's a monthly fee for unlimited.
Hope you had a great birthday!!!!

I want a theater with reclining seats! I enjoy playing Skip-Bo, although it's been a while. It's also been a while since I've ate at Olive Garden. A day eating there and playing Skip-Bo would be awesome! I don't have a smartphone either. It probably wouldn't hurt for me to upgrade to one but it's neither here nor there for me.

We haven't seen the Jurrasic World and my kids have been asking us several time. Hopefully soon :). We cooked together in father's day and made some cards plus drawing for daddy :)

My Grandson has been talking about seeing Jurassic World. Not sure if his mom is taking him at some point or not.
