We started the day off with house chores and rewarded ourselves by going to the movies. A local theater shows a different older kids flick each week for a whopping $1.00 per person. This week was "Hotel Transylvania" and it was the perfect activity for a day with questionable weather. And it was a decent movie - animation for kids, but humor for adults. It was Adam Sandler - he's just a big kid so a good time was had by all.
We had lunch with grandma and grandpa and a quiet dinner at home with RJ. Tonight was the car show in town so we walked over to check it out. The kids saw a number of their classmates and they enjoyed catching up. RJ and I also saw a number of our childhood classmates (life in a small town) and we enjoyed catching up and meeting their children. There were a number of beautiful vintage cars...far more exciting and sexy than my practical mini-van. My favorite though was an early-model electric car. It wasn't shiny or sexy, just practical and trying to make the world a better place...kind of like me. RJ drooled over the Camaros and the kids followed him and loved the Camaro that looked like Bumblebee from Transformers. We stopped at Vanilla Bean and the kids had cones. Their cone-eating skills are improving, but there is still work to do...I'm sure they won't mind the practice!
