"Up"

Sophie loves movies.  She begs daily to watch a Disney movie and it takes all my creative power to come up with other ways to distract her.  But when Joseph and I talked about going to see the new Pixar film "Up" we decided that it would be fun to take Sophie with us.



We weren't able to get very great pictures of our trip because my old camera kept dying so I had to just shoot and hope it turned out.  So here we are before going into the theatre and inside before the movie began.  Just Sophie and I went so that Joseph could stay home with Avery.  Sophie liked the flick a lot, though her little body was too small to hold the big chair down and it kept flipping up on her.  I had to put up the hand rest and put my legs on the front of the chair to keep it down for her.  I'm not sure she totally knew when the previews and hilarious short at the beginning were actually over and the real movie began so there was a little confusion, but she eventually figured it out and had a good time.  We won't be taking her to the theatre again anytime soon, but it was a fun Mommy/Daughter date just this once.  By the way, I loved the movie (and Joseph saw it later and loved it, too) and would highly recommend it.  Very clever as always, very sweet (made me cry a couple times), and a good message, too.  We both gave it A's which is saying a lot for us.  Thanks for the fun date, Sophie Girl!  I love you!

Sophie's first movie huh? I think we're debating whether to take Jack to UP for HIS first movie too. I wonder how he'll handle the whole thing?

sounds like such a fun mommy daughter date, and I'm glad to know that movie is so good - we had been wondering if it would be worth seeing...oh, and I love the pic of Sophie all ready to go to the movies! :)

What a fun Mother/daughter date! I'm also glad to know Tayson isn't the only one who begs to watch TV. The other morning we were eating breakfast and he said "can I watch a kid show?" Seriously! We weren't even near a TV -- where does the fascination come from?! You'll have to teach me some of your creative distraction tips. =)
Glad you had fun and glad it was such a good movie!

We took Bradley and Jack and new baby to see this. Disaster. Bradley got scared by the dogs and started crying that he wanted to go home....which set Jack off. They both were crying that they wanted to go home in a fairly full theater. Their crying made the baby cry....and newborn cries are hard to ignore. I thought the movie was cute, but I don't think we'll buy this one and relive the trauma.
