Trip to the Movies

I took the kids to see the new Harry Potter movie this morning. I now realize why I always wait for the DVD to come out. For 4 of us (with snacks of course) it came to $60!! That seems absolutely insane to me for a simple trip to the movies. Not to mention the 4 bathroom trips I had to make. I like having a pause button :)

It was worth it though, because the kids enjoyed themselves and got some special time with me. I dropped the younger two off at hourly care on post (for free!) and we enjoyed 5 whole hours to ourselves. I have to admit that it was nice.

I don't think we'll be going back to the theater anytime soon though. Once or twice a year is enough for me :)

1. Movies overseas are free. Volunteer for tour to Korea.
2. I LOVE that the younger ones go to the CDC and I get to hang out with the older two. They are fun!
3. Can't wait for Harry Potter! First showing here is this coming Saturday!

We are going to see the movie today, my husband and I. We are actually paying for a sitter (a once a year treat) and crossing our fingers the baby takes a bottle from her better than he does from us. HP is a big enough deal to me that I consider the cost special enough.

Glad you got some good time with your kids!

That is absurd--$60!! But some movies just must be seen at the theater. I need to take my kids to see HP soon!

I am glad you and the girls got to go out to a movie together. I am sure they loved it, but I know that $60 is crazy! That is why Dan and I have Netflix it is way cheaper.

$100 dollars is what it cost us to see it with our 4 kids. My husband was thinking he maybe should have just let me take the older two to the midnight showing. Oh well, we all had a great time and loved the movie.
