I had been using this trip as a major trump card with my kids...("Empty the dishwasher, or you won't be going to the beach."--"Get your rooms cleaned up, or don't plan on joining us at the beach")-- You know, stuff like that.
So as you can imagine, when the trip had to be cancelled due to rain, I was in major scramble mode to come up with the "beach equivalent"...
We started off with lunch at Chik-fil-a. Doesn't it seem like I document this place a million times? What's up with that?
We stopped off at Wawa (similar to a 7-eleven) for a quick candy fix...(I'm the biggest candy nut EVER!)
Then it was onto the movies. None of us had seen "Up" yet, and so this is the movie we chose to see. This was the first actual movie at the theatre that Ellie had ever seen. She probably would have been fine with just seeing the previews, because after each one, she said "Is the movie over now?"
I'm not usually a fan of cartoons and animated movies, but I really fell in love with this one. It had a very sweet message.
