My Movie Dates {Wordless Wednesday with Linky}


I love that the twins are finally old enough so that I can take all 3 girls to the movie theater, by myself. As long as they have a snack – they sit still, and we are all able to enjoy the movie.

We have done this for the last couple of weekends now, a great way to spend a Winter afternoon. And, if you are able to go at cheaper times {and to a cheaper theatre}, it’s not too expensive. This past Saturday we went and seen Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. The kids loved it!

As much as I try not to play the, ‘I can’t wait until they are old enough to…’ game, I must admit this is a great milestone to reach! I rather like my new movie dates!

How often do you take your kids to the movies?





  1. Oh gosh! I took my 4 and 5 year old nephews to Chipwrecked and I had a ball! I loved Theodore’s girlfriend say “My precious my precious” and I loved it when Alvin (I think it was him) bang into a tree saying OH my acorns!! HAHAAHA.. Clearly I had a good time. I haven’t seen a kid’s movie in yeaaaars.

      Ha!! Yep, those quotes are right! There were a ton of kids in that theatre and around me, I was the only one that laughed at those parts. *giggle*

  2. The animated kids movies are so much fun. I hope you have your popcorn too! :) Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  3. I have not braved it on my own yet, maybe I’ll have to try it soon!

  4. That is a great milestone. My youngest, which is your twins age still doesn’t sit still all the time. It really depends on the movie.

    • Mine sit better in the theature than they do for movies at home. Well, b/c in theaters you ‘have to sit nice or we have to leave’, right?

  5. That sounds like so much fun!

  6. fun!! And I am still not brave enough to take my three kids to the move theatre by myself!!

    • Tammi says:

      I braved it out of boredom one day. Though it wouldn’t be so easy if just one toddler needed to go to the bathroom mid-way through the movie…. I dread that!

  7. Movie dates are my favourite!

  8. We have only brought Big Brother to the movies once but he loved it and was so well behaved.

  9. We’ve been enjoying family movies too.. have they been to a 3D one yet? Those are fun – but the LO doesn’t like to wear the glasses much…

  10. Jealous! Can’t wait to take my boys!! :) So cute!

  11. Looks like they had a great time!

  12. What a fun thing to do! I love how they all have there own little popcorn and drink. So cute!

  13. Oh how fun! Looks like they really enjoyed the movie :)

  14. That’s SO fun, Tammi! And great memory building moments, too! :)
