Movie Day - Toy Story 3


The boys have been begging to go see a movie. When they found out that Toy Story 3 was in town, they asked to go see that movie. Used to, our town offered free summer movies, but now they charge $2.50/each to see the summer movies. We have not been to the movies yet this summer. Since our boys have seen most of the movies playing in the summer line-up, I decided to pay a little extra to see a movie they had not seen before. I have read good reviews about this movie.

Since I woke up with a summer cold and my head is hurting, I decided today would be a good day to go to the movies. It will be dark, and cool, and quiet (except for the movie of course.) I told the boys they would have to have everything completed before we left. They had to have their lessons finished, their room cleaned, and their reading finished. I have never seen them more motivated to do their work than this morning!


UPDATE: This has to be one of the best movies that I have ever watched! There are all sorts of moral lessons - good vs. evil, friendship, sacrifice, overcoming obstacles, moving on, pure love, just to name a few. There is adult humor but not any that would be inappropriate for anyone to watch - very clean fun!!! I will buy this movie for sure when it is released.


  1. Susan...we saw this movie the other day with grandson Jeremy.The 3 of us really enjoyed it.The movie got Jeremy to thinking about some of his favorite toys that he has out grown such as his Thomas trains.He is so torn since he still loves those trains but feels like at age 9 he is too old to play with them.

  2. Nancy, my boys came home and immediately started cleaning out their toys to give away as well. It made me sad to see them give up their "baby" books.

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! My girls & Hubby are going this week - I prefer to wait for the DVD. Thanks for the review! 0;^)
