Iron Man

Last Wednesday, I took the kids to see Iron Man.  We got to the theatre and sat down with about 10 other people.  The movie was showing every 30 minutes so people had a huge choice of times to see it.  It was also 3:30 on a Wednesday.  The movie was good and all except one scene toward the beginning with a reporter was appropriate for the kids.  It held Ashli's(7) attention all the way through, but Ally(3) just couldn't follow the movie completely.  They both loved the movie and I enjoyed it as well.  Someone told me it was better than Spiderman 2 and that is setting the bar way high.  It was not better, but was still very good. 

On the way home from the movie, Ashli was looking out the window and being very quiet.  I knew exactly what she was thinking.  I asked her, "What are you thinking about back there, how to create an Iron Man suite?"  She lit up and said, "Yeah."  Ally made up and Iron man dance where she shuffles her feet and then kicks.  They both run around playing Iron man now. 

With all the movies coming up, I think I will go broke.  They both want to see Prince Caspian, Indiana (or Indian according to Ally) Jones, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Incredible Hulk.
