Presidents Day = Family Day

Well it's a good thing we didn't go to Moab. They had a storm over the weekend and reports now have them at 328% of normal for their snowfall. Eeek.

For our day off we had decided that we would go to see the Lightning Thief and go bowling. We weren't the only ones with the same idea. We got to the theater an hour before the first show and the first two showing were already completely sold out. We should have known.

We bought tickets for a late afternoon show and headed to Jack and Jill (our someplace new this month. We have lived here almost 7 years and had never tried bowling here before) where we had to wait because it was the granny's bowling league. Seriously, these chicks were old.
After a 15 minute wait it was our turn. My favorite part of bowling in the shoes, without a doubt.
Andrew had some good shots and always got really excited!
I was a disgrace. My final score was in the 60's.
Paul won and got 3 strikes during the game. Not too shabby.
Emma came in second and she earned a turkey! After bowling we ran home for Andrew's Ipod, got Taco Amigo, an oil change, (maybe we shouldn't have picked the late afternoon show?) and then wandered through Target and Kohls. We finally decided we could go to the theater. There was only a little over an hour to go.
We got there and took up our spot on the floor to wait. We weren't the only ones.

The crowd was nucking futs.

Once we got inside we got to wait some more.

I will say that the theater did a good job of getting me excited for Alice in Wonderland.Think I could hang one of these in the house somewhere?
The show was really good but it was not like the book at all. I would not watch the movie until you read the book. If you have read the book then don't go to the show expecting it to follow the story too closely, because it doesn't. We are glad we went and it was fun to watch a movie for a book that we had all read. It was a good weekend.

I took your advice and read The Lightning Thief. I just finished it yesterday. It was a fun read and now I'm excited to go see the movie with Christian.

Glad you guys had a fun President's day!

What a fun day! I love the shots at the bowling alley, especially the shoes! :)

Sounds like a really fun day out. Alice in wonderland is one I can't wait to see!

Your bowling score cracked me up! I want to bowl with you. I usually get in the 90's at least. ;)
