Staycation Day 3 - Movie Time!

Entertaining the boys on $3 and a can of Spaghettio's

So, since it was raining I decided to take the boys to the movies. The theater here in town has a $1 each morning for families to see. Today was Spiderwick Chronicles. I was thrilled that Jackson was doing so well. He was really into it. Unfortunately, not amount of Goldfish Crackers could keep young Sebastian in his seat. He wanted to run in the aisles, he wanted to jump in the seats, he wanted to crawl onto Jackson's lap. Anything but sit in my lap for more than 20 minutes. I know that's a lot to ask but, he's the one who stares down complete strangers for fun. He's usually pretty good at playing on his own. But, when he starts to take flight, there's no keeping that one down.

After our quick escape from the movies, we went home and dined on Spaghettios. Needless to say, the noodles served as a moisturizer for the little guy. He konked out and so a bath would have to wait until after naptime. Here's a post-nap shot:

So, after the hose-down (a.k.a. bathtime) we went to the mall for a couple of hours. So, the grand total for today's events: $3. Not bad! Tomorrow's forecast: sunshine!
