On Friday night, we took Evan out to dinner and to the movies for his birthday (I'm working this coming weekend, which is closer to his birthday, so we did it this past weekend). We asked him where he wanted to go for dinner and true to form, he chose sushi! (Hey, this is the kid who eats broccoli and salad too!) So we headed over to our favorite sushi joint, Blue Island and we had a great time! Evan indulged in sushi, chicken, gyoza, and other treats. Ethan pretty much only eats the chicken and desserts.
After filling up on yummy food, we headed over to the mall to watch Up in 3D! WOW... I have to say that this is now one of my favorite Disney films of all time! (I think The Incredibles still holds the #1 spot though.) This movie is amazingly wonderful! There are SO many life lessons and unique characters. The soundtrack is a winner too. One of the strengths of this film has to do with the things that weren't said. There were many times when nothing was spoken and yet the message was so powerfully delivered. I won't give away plot spoilers but suffice it to say that you should be SURE to see this one in the theater... preferrably in 3D if you have the opportunity. You won't regret it. And be prepared to cry. There were many tear-jerker moments in this flick. I can't wait for this one to hit our local $2 theater... we'll definitely be going again this summer!!
