It’s been a few days since I’ve blogged so let me catch everyone up. Tuesday my BFF and I had lunch at Steak ‘n Shake for the first time. We were both blown away by how delicious and affordable their food was. We are definitely planning a future outing there with the kids. We often think about practicing our victory dinners in which we’ll be celebrating our success. It WILL happen. That night the city also had an early Independence Day celebration and we went to watch the spectacular fireworks display by the lake. It was a superb moment filled with lots of smiles.
Wednesday was Independence Day of course and it was sooooo much fun! The kids and I went to the pool and swam our little hearts out. Then we did some grilling in our backyard, played some card games and lit firecrackers. We hadn’t had fun like that in a long time. We need to have more days like that without it having to be a special occasion.
Yesterday was my youngest son’s birthday. He turned the big 05! He was so excited. We went to go get him a much-needed haircut, then we went to see Madagascar 3 (short review may follow this post), afterwards he had a mini shopping spree at the dollar store (working on a budget here) and then had lunch at Mc Donald’s (Thursday was $1.99 Happy Meal Day! Yes!) In the evening we went to my BFF’s house and had dinner then B-Day cake and festivities. Overall I think he enjoyed his day.
That was our last 3 days. Madagascar 3 review below.
As mentioned above, my youngest son and I went to see this movie yesterday as a part of his birthday bash. This installment of the Madagascar movies is about the zoo animals trying to get back to their beloved home, the Central Park Zoo.
At first I thought this one was going to be a dud because it kind of had a slow start. All of the old characters were there, however, they introduced a some new characters: Captain Chantel DuBois, Stefano the Sea Lion, Vitaly the Tiger and Gia the Jaguar. I honestly wasn’t too impressed until the circus scenes started, once they did it made the movie an absolutely stellar one. Overall, my 5-year-old giggled his head off and I was pretty entertained as well.
P.S. The “I like to move it/Afro Circus Remix” at the end was phenomenal!! 🙂
