Joey and Dad Go to the Movies - 2006

I dug this up the other day and thought it would be cool to share.

Dear Joey,
Today on Saturday August 12, 2006, your mommy and Ella went to her friend Mel’s wedding shower. So, I thought that it would be a great idea to have some Dad/Son time and go to the movies. The last time you actually went to see a movie was probably two years ago at your cousin Andrews birthday party.
You woke up at around 8am and had some Fruit Loops and watched a little TV before finding out that you were going to the movies. You had a little trouble understanding what this meant. I think you thought that we had to go to the store to buy a movie and so you were very excited. At about 10am, we drove to the movies and while in the car you put your Spider Man mask on along with mommy’s belt and a red Marti Gras bead necklace. As we walked through the mall, many people were very impressed with your stylish look. Once we got up to the top floor you immediately wanted to go to the carousal, but I quickly pointed to the ticket booth. You became very excited, because you see, you only knew of this area due to its video games and not for actually seeing a movie. So, we purchased our tickets (The Ant Bully), popcorn and pop (Sprite). I motioned for you to walk towards the movie entrance and with your stylish attire, “ran” towards the ticket handler as I tried to catch up while balancing the popcorn, pop and tickets in my hands. Once we got into the theater we happened to be the only one there until another family showed up. We sat right in the middle and you began eating popcorn and watching the movie previews. The third preview happened to be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie of which you wanted to watch immediately. Actually, once the Ant Bully started you didn’t want to watch it and shouted that you wanted to watch the Ninja Turtle movie. You sat through the whole movie and jumped a few times. I was very impressed and can’t wait to take you to another movie. After the movie, we went to the “Big Tree” where you played nice for most of the time, until you ran into another bossy boy so we decided that it was lunch time and went home to eat left over pizza.
