We took the boys to their first movie this weekend. Guess what we saw? The Muppet Movie. Yep, you read that right: The Muppet Movie. And no, I'm not blogging from 1979.

Even better, it was a sing-a-long. I forgot to tell TK about that part, so when the whole theater burst into song right along with Kermit, he burst into laughter.

The boys were really good. N-man was really enamored by the movie. It helps that he's in love with rainbows. I mean, he LOVES rainbows. So he was pretty excited to see a movie with rainbows. His favorite, though, was Rowlf. When Rowlf came on, he announced loudly, "It's a DOG, Mommy. A DOG! Playing piano!" I know, dear, it's pure genius.

B-man loved the movie theater seats. He loved getting folded in half by them, as he wasn't really heavy enough to weigh down the seat. He loved jumping out of the seat and seeing it fold up all by itself. And then unfolding it. Geez, he must have annoyed the other movie-goers. Oh dear, well, he only did it a few times.

Anyway, it was a very fun day, and felt like a big milestone. I guess we're ready to start giving newer movies a try. Like something from the 80's. I don't want to rush into this whole Turn of the Century thing.

OMG - there's a place that does Muppet Movie sing-alongs?!? Clearly, I need to have children so that going to such things is acceptable! I sing many of the songs on a daily basis anyway. Rowlf was always my favorite too. :-)

Your kids could not possibly have annoyed the movie-goers more than Maddie and Riley who ran, screamed, and yelled for the WHOLE THING! We had fun, but 25 months is a little early for the movies :).

Great to see you, though.

oooh - I LOVE the Muppet Movie! We have the soundtrack, and the kids sing along to it. Okay. Mom sings along... but the kids dance!

Jeez, that would have been awesome even without the kids in tow! I always preferred THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER, but boy, I loved that movie. Is the whole frog legs subplot as profoundly disturbing as I remember it, though?
