My kids and I had a very special, and super awesome movie night on Tuesday!
Last week, I saw that one of my favorite movies was available on Kid’s OnDemand – and I was very surprised to find out that there was a movie in the series that I hadn’t seen yet.
What series?? Ice Age of course!!
I have always liked the first two movies: Ice Age and Ice Age The Meltdown, but I had no idea that there was a third movie.
Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs has quickly become E’s all time favorite movie. I have already rented it 5 times in the past week, and he is about ready to have his own meltdown because OnDemand took it down for August.
Because my kids loved all three movies so much, I thought it would be fun to take them to the theater to see the new Ice Age movie: Continental Drift!
We went to a late-for-my-kids movie showing (at 6:30) on Tuesday night. They were super excited to get their own bags of popcorn, and I brought juice boxes in my bag. It wasn’t too expensive (thankfully) because E is still free at our theater, and I had an entertainment coupon to reduce the price of my ticket.
It was so worth it!
We were the only ones in the theater – which was neat. V said she felt like we were special because they played the movie “just for us”.
I won’t tell you what happened in the movie – but I will say that you should go see it! I love all of the Ice Age movies because they have a great story for kids, entertaining adult humor, and each one has a positive message about family, helping friends, and sticking together.
After the movie, we played a few arcade games, took our pictures in the photo booth (both kids LOVED this!) and got some candy from the quarter machines.
All in all, it was an awesome night. The kids were great: well behaved and so much fun to be with.
By the time we got home it was almost 9!! They went right to bed and even slept in a bit the next morning.
Mega Awesome Night!
Do you love Ice Age? Have/Did you see the new movie?
