Change of Plans (Sunday)

Angel Bear just waking.
Isn’t it nice to have a flexible enough schedule to be able to change your mind? We reconsidered Sea World for yesterday, and decided instead to have a “down day” and go see Star Trek. The kids were devastated (not) since that meant they could hang out for the morning and build their new LEGO kits.

Multi-sized kids building LEGOs.

After a lunch of apple cheddar sandwiches (thank you, Sarah), we were off. On the way to the theater we drove past the Wonder Works building, which kind of freaked out Thunder Bear. We were a few minutes late, and the IMAX theater was packed, but I managed to find three seats for the boys and I to squeeze into (with Angel Bear on my lap), with a seat in front of us for Papa Bear. The kids had never been to an IMAX or stadium seating, but once they adjusted to the huge screen they loved it. The move was awesome, and since Brother Bear had already gotten into the old Star Trek series and previous movies, he was able to identify each of the familiar characters as they appeared. It was one of those movies we’re still talking about the day after. We’ll probably end up going back later in the week.

So, after the movie, we went back to the rooms for a bit, where the guys presented me with some nice Yankee Candle Company candles. Then Papa Bear took the kids to the pool, while I hung out for some quiet time. After a dinner of pizza, the kids played Line Rider for a couple of hours on my laptop, making a special slide just for me for Mother’s Day. A laid-back evening, a nice bottle of wine. Contentment.
