Olivia’s First Movie

photo

Olivia went to her first movie in the movie theatre today.  We were joined by Shelley and Izzy and went to see Hop.  I realized before the movie that Olivia was not quite ready for the experience, but I really wanted to take her.  The only way we made it through the whole movie was because we were the only ones in the cry room (those are pretty cool, by the way . . .kinda like your own private VIP room.)  Olivia doesn’t sit down for movies at home, so I knew she wouldn’t sit down at a movie theatre.  She likes to watch certain shows, but she has to be doing something else simultaneously.  You will very rarely catch her sitting still for much of anything.  The cry room worked out perfectly because she could stand up and walk around if she wanted.  The whole thing was worth it for the adorable picture that I got of Olivia and Izzy at Olivia’s first movie!  We had a great time, but it will probably be a little while before we try the experience again. 

We did also manage to somehow leave Olivia’s glasses at the movie theatre.  Luckily, I called about it and they called me back saying that they had found them.  I promptly picked them up and we now have her glasses back in our possession.  Whew. . that was a close one.

Too cute! I took Ryan for his first movie a couple weeks ago. He wasn't ready either. He also stands and is constantly "busy" during any tv watching so sitting for a movie wasn't going to work, but we tried. Unfortunately they didn't have a cry room and we only saw about the first 15 minutes of the movie. Glad you all had a good time!

So cool! A cry room?! I want one of those :) we don't have those fancy schmancy rooms here in po dunk Ohio. Lol. Movies are hard to sit through even for ME! So I'm sure Olivia did just fine.

We had a wonderful time. I think I will ALWAYS sit in the cry room from now on. It was so private... I felt VIP! Can't wait for Pooh and Cars 2!!
