The First Time for the Twins and It was Magical

Mr. Howard, my dad, and brother went to San Francisco on Saturday, July 26th, for the Giants v Dodger game (the boys got my dad tickets for his father's day present). Mr. Howard and I had planned on taking the kids to Aiden and Isabella's FIRST MOVIE on Sunday, but since my brother was in town, we didn't want to miss spending time with him.

So my mom and I decided to take the kids to a movie on Saturday while the boys were away, instead. We took them to Planes Fire and Rescue. Of course the kids and I needed a car selfie before heading in to the movie.
The twins were SO excited about their first movie. They felt like such big kids. They held our hands while we went in.
 We got there early and picked our perfect seats before getting treats. (Do you see Aiden's crazy eyes! He was EXCITED!):
 This was their first movie popcorn and I'm pretty sure they were beyond excited! We also let them have some sprite for the first time ever.
 They did really well in the theatre, considering. I was so impressed. I could tell you about how Aiden yelled "no" at me...and how I scooped him up to take him out of the theatre...and then how he proceeded to shout loudly, "I'm sorry Mama. I'm sorry! I am sorry Mama!" I could tell you about how many times I took Isabella to the potty, or how right when I'd get back Aiden would tell me HE needed to go...I could tell you about how three-year-olds don't really understand the concept of "whispering" in a theatre. Or I could even tell you about how we left the movie about an hour into it, because they had reached their plateau (1.5 hours of being in the theatre). But really, what I want to say about the whole thing was that It was Magical. I know; I know. Corny. But I've said it before and I'll say it again. I dreamed of this forever. I didn't know if I'd have kids. Taking my kids to the movies, regardless of how much time I actually spent watching the movie, was magical. I just adore being a Mama.
 There are just moments, when despite the ridiculousness that is your life and despite the fact that it never looks like you think it will - you have to stop, reflect and be grateful for the life you lead. I am so thankful.

I dunno, I have this weird vague memory of holding their hands in the parking lot. And I think that is where we were going, haha. That's about all ;) But my Mom tells me I held up my little toy Gus mouse every time he came on the screen!
