Sunny Sunday

It was a beautiful sunny day, however, being damp due to the temp hovering around the zero mark it felt quite a bit colder.

We had a busy Sunday, taking Dave's three grandchildren to see "Paddington".  We all enjoyed it very much.  I recognized several of the British actors in it.  
 How do families afford to take their children to see a movie in the cinema?  Seniors and children under the age of 12 were $6.00,  so that was $24.00 plus $7.00 for a student ===$31.00 .   Then there is the pop corn and drinks to two = $14.00, and pop corn, hot dog and drink for one===$12.00 for a total of $50.00.  This movie was in an older theatre, so the prices are a lot cheaper that what would have to be paid if we had gone to one of the new super movie theatres.

We then went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner to celebrate one of my grand daughter's 17th birthday.

Hope your granddaughter's 17th year is a great one!
I agree, a movie date is very expensive these days - we go to matinees only and rarely buy refreshments (I cannot swallow popcorn).
We did see American Sniper last week - hubby was the one who wanted to go, I tagged along but am not a fan of this type of film. I have to say though that I thought it an amazing film, very sad and some scenes hard to watch, but so interesting as it's a true story, excellent acting, and I left the theatre feeling and thinking a lot differently about our brave troops having to fight this way. War has changed - but as always, we need to stand behind those men and women who give so much for our countries and our freedom.

Hope your week is good and the snow stays away, or at least is light and not what NY is expecting!
