Our New Year's resolution was to do at least one family activity or outing, just the five of us, every week this year. This is week 2 of family fun.
For this week's family fun, we went to see "The Rise of the Guardians". This was Connell's first time going to a movie theatre with the kids. We had heard great reviews, lots of our friends have seen it.
We went straight after school on Friday. Initially Fiacra didn't want to go and he kept repeating "I don't want to see that movie". Finian, getting worried we may not go, countered each one with "I want to see movie on big screen". Eventually, after a short endless drive we arrived, and Fiacra jumped out of the van, happy to be there.
I wasn't sure how Finian would handle the big screen and the volume. It took him a little while to get used to it but then he liked it and talked non-stop. Fiacra and Ailbhe loved the movie. I thought Santa was great in it.
Finian, it seems, held some candies in his hand for the whole movie, and was thrilled afterwards when he noticed that his hands were green, his absolute favourite colour.
