The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything

Rick and I took the kids to see a movie tonight.....I was a terrible mother "who calls herself a photographer" and didn't bring my camera. Not sure why I forgot it, but I did.

Our kids don't watch too many of the movies that come out. Now while I enjoy Shrek just as much as the next guy, Shrek calls Donkey a "jackass" in the 1st Shrek movie. While yes, this is technically correct, Heidi wouldn't know this. All she would know is that she heard jackass and would then proceed to call everyone a jackass. (to be completely honest. My niece Hannah wasn't allowed to watch movies like that when Shrek came out. She spent the night at my mom's. Watched it. :) Went back home with Brianne and proceeded to say that word over and over again. hehehe. not my kids though. It wouldn't be funny then.)

So, I usually find fault with most/all movies. The Madagascar movie couldn't be watched because the penguins kept saying that the South Pole "sucked". Little things like that irk me. I know RJ's going to be on the bus next year for Kindergarten and will probably come home saying worse than that, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

We had to search forever to find a theatre that was showing the movie we wanted to see.

"Veggie Tales: The Pirates who don't do anything"

RJ loves the Veggie Tales. He likes the silly songs that they sing and we like that we can leave the room without worrying about what's being said.

RJ laughed at this movie so loud. There were only 2 other people in the 8:30 show that we went to. (in Mattoon) The kids weren't feeling well today so it's best that there probably weren't a ton of people there. RJ loved all the parts and I'm sure will want it when it comes out on DVD.

Heidi ate her own entire bag of popcorn and then took her boots off and made me rub her feet. She was slightly less interested, but still enjoyed it. She and RJ talked about half way home until they both fell asleep.

It's a great movie. Highly Recommend it!
