Natalie's First Trip to the Movies

We are blessed to have a theater here that shows free kids' movies every Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. The other day I noticed that they were playing an Elmo movie (The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland) and since Natalie is the biggest Elmo fan, I decided it was time to go.

I told her about it when she woke up this morning and she was very excited. She thought we were just going downstairs to watch her Elmo goes to the doctor dvd. On the way to the theater she almost fell asleep. Poor girl gets up so early! We had gotten there really early (I had heard that it gets packd once daycare's start unloading their buses). About 10 minutes before it started, she told me she was ready to go home and take a nap. Ha! So she watched the movie from my lap mostly because she was so tired.

I couldn't believe how well behaved she was amidst the chaos of everyone else. I have never heard so many screaming children or seen so many mothers do nothing about it. I guess I'm just used to church where you take your kids to the nursery when they do that. (By the way, I didn't bring the camera and was KICKING myself for it all morning.) As the movie ended she started bawling. I don't know if the other screaming kids fnally got to her or she was just so tired but she didn't stop till we met Daddy at the Red Robin across the parking lot. The tears instantly dried up and she was non-stop, "Elmo got him blanket back, Daddy!" It was a really great morning. I took this one picture of her when we got home.
Right after that I put her down for a nap and came downstairs to my computer. Currently, she is playing in the living room. So I think I'll end this post and put us both to bed.

Here a couple pictures I found from the movie, Just in case you were curious...


  1. That's so great! We have had free movie days this summer on Wednesday here, too. Bryce and Aidan both got to go with their preschool classes. I'm glad she had fun! My boys like that movie, too. Bryce got it from Tom and Marcie for his second birthday when he had an Elmo party. Fun! Oh, and by the way, tell that little girl of yours to keep her legs together in pictures! HA HA HA!!!

  2. Man, Thats look like a good "moomie" I would have been excited to even watch Elmodocker.
