It's been a while since I've posted, busy, busy, busy! Last Saturday, we took the little monsters to see Over the Hedge. Of course we all loved it. Raine will tell you that Hammy was the best character, Wyatt liked RJ and Mommy and Daddy were a bit partial toward Ozzie (we’re Trekies). It’s a funny movie with a lot of jokes just for Mom and Dad and action for the babies.

We went on Sunday to see X3 and weren’t so excited. I didn’t exactly enjoy the movie. I like it because I like X-Men, but there was something missing. People died who shouldn’t die and the relationships seemed fake. I don’t know, I just would have preferred something … else.

Yesterday, we watched Cars. OMG - LOVED IT!!! Raine liked Mater, Wyatt liked Lightening McQueen, Erik liked Luigi and I liked Doc. I have to say that I am a NASCAR fan and enjoyed all the nuances added to this movie. Darrell Waltrip’s “Boogidy, boogidy, boogidy” was in there as well as the infield and even on awesome flipping wreck. The funniest like (by far) was when Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) said “I’m happier than a tornado in a trailer park.” I know it’s not right but that was funny as heck! We all enjoyed the movie and already have plans to buy the movie when it comes out.

From the previews that we’ve seen, this summer looks to be a GREAT summer for family movies and movies just for Mommy and Daddy. Hopefully, we can afford to go. The theater we went to last night charged $9 for adults!! We didn’t even try for popcorn, we’d’ve had to taken out a second mortgage just to pay for popcorn and soda!

I read your blog last night, Vikki, and it made me go see Cars today. I've wanted to see it, but I've been so busy this week. I finally just said "Forget TV and packing, I'm going to see Cars!" I looooved it, too. It's a great movie. There were a lot of little bits that had me laughing. Right now, my fave is the bumper sticker that said "I Auto Be in Pictures." I'll have to buy the DVD and pause it to read all the other bumper stickers in that shot. I'm sure there are some more great ones:)

I didn't even know that was Larry the Cable Guy until he let his catch phrase slip later in the movie. I loved the trailer park comment too - I loved the whole damn movie. Best thing I've seen since Shrek 1 & 2!
