Just dropping a quick note because I’m pretty excited about this afternoon.

I took the boys to go see Kung Fu Panda 3 this morning.  Elliott ended up coming with us rather than staying behind and going to Cleveland with my parents. 

This is the first time in forever that we made it through the entire movie. 

Not only did we make it through but there weren’t any bathroom breaks required either and for Gavin especially, that’s just plain awesome.

Elliott however, is showing signs of being spent already and so I’m not sure how this is going to go. 

I will also point that Elliott actually enjoyed himself at the movie and I snuck a picture of him actually smiling…  ☺
