Fun at the Movies

I'm still reeling over the cost of taking the whole family to the movies today. Even with discounted tickets that Jon purchased from his college, we've concluded that it is too much to fit any more of these outings into our budget. The kids understand. And there are other options. Buying the DVD is still way cheaper, plus we'd get to watch the movies over and over.

We watched "Cloudy With The Chance of Meatballs." We let Dan pick, and we weren't surprised by his choice. He's been asking and patiently waiting many weeks for the chance to watch it. It was a pleasant surprise that it was being shown in 3D. We all enjoyed it. kw

Climbing Trees

Riverdale Farm
Originally uploaded by The Wongs
For some reason or other, Dan has suddenly become very interested in climbing trees. For example, on our recent visit to the Riverdale farm, he was attempting to climb every tree in sight. The shot on this post was one "successful" attempt. I put the word in quotes because I actually had to help him up the tree before he clung onto the branch.

Wonder what it is about boys and trees? I remember being the same way at his age...
