G-Force with 3 boys

Saturday morning Noah, Carter & Gray came over bright and early while their daddy went to play golf and momma was at BlogHer in Chicago. They arrived to bacon sizzling, biscuits and hash browns cooking. Would you believe out of all of this, Noah wanted yogurt and Gray wanted a poptart? They did eat some of the good stuff first though. Remember, almost anything goes at Mimi's house. They were so excited knowing we were going to see G-Force in 3-D in 4 hours, leaving an hour earlier for theater candy shopping. Noah asked me every 15 min., is it almost time to go? Now, I am not a cheap person, but when you add up 4 people going to see a movie and all of the munchies, it can be very costly, so I decided to pack bottled water and Carter's favorite lemonade in a bottle, wrapping each one with foil to keep cold. I got my Big Purse for the haul. We left an hour before show time to head over to the store for theater candy, letting each pick out 1 of their favorite. Guess what Gray chose out of a zillion kinds of boxes? Tic-Tacs. They had a 3 for 3$ special, so he did get a box of candy as well. They are so funny, choosing exactly the same candy, Krabby Patties, a Spongebob Squarepants candy, that is quite good, sort of reminds me of gummie bears and peeps.
When we got to the theater, I got 1 large tub of buttered popcorn for all of us to share, since I thought they would be more interested in the candy. Noah polished off the last of the popcorn after passing it back and forth to Carter. Gray had ALL of his tic tacs eaten before the show started, then he was on to the crabby patties. By the middle of the movie, Gray was so fidgety from all of the sugar, I told him, No More Sugar, after he was begging to open another box of candy. The movie was so cute, clever and good humor. I really enjoyed it and would give it a thumbs up. I am getting spoiled to 3-D movies now. After the show, I heard, "I'm hungry". Now, you would think after all that junk they ate, they would not want lunch for at least 2 or 3 hours. So, thank God for McD's. We drove thru and got Happy Meals and headed home to await daddy picking them up. They, of course were more interested in the little toy and Gray didn't touch his food. He took home to eat later. When Jeff came to pick them up, they were 3 very tired little guys. Of course, Carter didn't want to go and the tears started flowing, but that's our Carter Bear, very attached. It was a great morning with my 3 favorite little boys and guinea pigs.

Sounds like a fun day was had by ALL of you! Gray sounds so much like my Alisha was at that age. She's still pretty particular about what foods she likes.

What a good grandma you are. Sounds like everyone had a great time. I can't wait till my little one is old enough to sit through a movie.

That sounds like the funnest day of all time! Movie, candy and McDonald's all in one day! You ARE the greatest grandma in the whole entire world! Every time I am with my grandchildren I remember the words my Nana used to say to me about food... "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach." But she ALWAYS gave in... and I always give in and get what they want! That's what grandparents are for... right?!
