Movie night at the zoo? sounds fab!

The Louisville Zoo was playing The Wizard of Oz tonight, on a giant screen, outdoors. We went last week to their showing of Night At the Museum 2 (funny!!!), and had a good time with our friends the Barnhards. So of course I wanted the boys to see this American classic film. I told them a bit about it, and Kenshin was a bit scared, but told me if I sat by him, he'd be okay. :)

Since we left the house later than I wanted, I decided to stop at Arby's for the 5 for $5 deal. That's where it all went wrong. LOL I had to wait in the drive-thru line for almost 20 MINUTES for 5 burgers and a fry: 7 minutes waiting for the cars ahead of me, 4 minutes waiting for the guy to take my credit card, and another 8 minutes for the food, then another 2 minutes for the fries. Oh. My. Word. The manager will get an email about this. *nod nod*

By that time, I noticed some stormy-looking clouds, so I asked the boys if they wanted to rent a movie instead, and they liked that new plan. I got DragonBall from RedBox, and we headed home. DragonBall didn't work in our DVD player (probably the format, out DVD player is ancient) so RB gave us a credit, and the boys selected Alvin and the Chipmunks from our collection. Red Vines, 7-up, crackers, chocolate, fruity cheerios, and fruit snacks. What do they all have in common? SUGAR!! Krillin didn't go hog-wild like Kenshin, but both boys were not feeling so hot by bed-time. LOL

Miaka didn't care about the movie, but she cracked up, watching the boys laugh. She also really, really likes Keebler crackers. She hung out on the couch with the boys, munching her way through a small plate of them. ... the crackers, not the boys. ...LOL

All the kids were in bed by 10:15 (after a vigorous tooth-brushing and mouthwash, and a story). I hate going to sleep when Phil is still at work, so I'm waiting up for him. Dishes are mostly done. Coupons are a mess. Living Room looks like a play-room. But the kids are asleep, so I sure won't be vacuuming. LOL

Okay... so I forget about reading blogs. Sue me! I watched most of the Wizard of Oz the frist time through the cracked between the seats ahead of us at the Fox Theater in Sokane. My cousin was a few years older (10) and he took a bunch of us cousins. I was ascared to death. That's right... ascared!!! Dadgum, right!
