The Lego Movie
Tom has long been a fan of Lego (you may remember his sixth birthday party), so when he read about the upcoming Lego Movie in his Lego Club magazine he was very keen to go and see it. The film came out the Friday before half term, so when my parents came to stay with us for half term week they took us all to the the cinema for a treat. Going to the cinema is a really big thing for us. With a family of five it is normally prohibitively expensive, so it hardly ever happens. We normally make do with our family film nights at home! In fact, although the Podlings have all been to the cinema before, this was the first time Mark and I had gone with them as they normally go with their grandparents. We were all very much looking forward to it.
Unfortunately, on the day my Mum was too ill to join us, but my Dad and the five of us went. We were well-provisioned with sweets, popcorn and drink and all thoroughly enjoyed the film. Lily and Emma sang 'Everything is Awesome' (the song in the film) for much of the way home and Tom has already asked if we can get it on DVD as soon as it comes out! We stopped off in Tesco on the way home and bought pizza for tea and Dad treated us to a tray of Krispie Kreme doughnuts, much to the Podlings delight. Tom finally got to try the strawberry glaze doughnut he has wanted for months and it was every bit as delicious as he had anticipated. It was a wonderful day and we all had a great time.
