What a fun but long day!
It started at 8pm in a rush to get to the annual town parade!
Hubby and the boys marched with Boy Scouts again this year.
To the far left, is Hubby, with the travel coffee cup dangling out of his back pocket! Next is Fuzzy, in the center left, in glasses and shorts, just raising his hand in a wave. Center right, with the flag kind of behind his head, is Hammer looking serious for a moment!
Pumpkin decided not to march this year. She could have marched with either Girl Scouts or her Dance School, both of which heckled her as they passed, for not marching. She decided she wanted to relax and watch this year. I didn't care, whatever makes her happy!
After the parade we came home, the boys got changed, and off we went to see Transformers! I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised!!! Spielberg and Lucas were able to make a movie that was the perfect balance of sci-fi, alien invasion, comedy, patriotic, action, hi-tech and romance!
Hammer was in 7th heaven! His special gal-pal came along, and he was very excited to share the experience with her! Even grandma told Hammer that she loved the movie! And, usually all this sci-fi Transformer stuff goes right over her head! LOL
I recommend the movie if you want to go and see one that entertains you from start to finish, without wringing you out. You walk out feeling great! This isn't a cerebral flick at all, but worth every dollar we paid. I rarely feel that after we exit movies nowadays!
I am glad we saw it on the big screen, the CGI effects were phenomenal and seamless. I did have to go to the ladies room with Pumpkin twice, so I am looking forward to the dvd so I can see what I missed!!! I actually missed one crucial thing... argh! Oh well, I can wait!
We decided to go out to dinner which ended up being a bit of a quest in and of itself! The first restaurant, our fave townie one, was closed. Next stop, they were super short of wait staff as they had called in 'sick' (read: drunk), and the wait for seating alone, would be about an hour.
Third and final stop... The Outback - success!! A very nice meal, too. Yay. Hats off to you, Outback, apparently you were ready and raring to go for all of us non-barbecuing people today!
It was a busy and 'kid' driven day... tomorrow, rest! LOL
ps... We had grey skies for the morning and most of the day. The rain came about dinner time, with showers on and off. Thunder storms started about 10 pm. At least most of the celebrations around us were complete by then!
