Lacey goes to gymnastics two times a week, and, conveniently enough, there's a movie theater nearby...so I joined Missy and her this week to see "Despicable Me" before going to see Lacey get her Mary-Lou-Retton on at the gym.
First, though, we got our energy up by hitting Johnny Rockets for some burgers, fries, and shakes. The Chocolate and Peanut Butter shake is ALMOST as good as Lynda's at the Jolly Kone -- ALMOST.
It appears we've started a tradition...Missy and I took Lacey to her first movie last summer -- Up! -- and we took a photo outside by the poster. So...we're carrying on here. However, Lacey seemed to think I was the movie's namesake, as she wouldn't let me hold her...I had to lean in to even be near her!
Lacey didn't think her mom was so despicable, but I have to say...she does look a bit like a rag doll.
And of course, the MINIONS were my favorite part of the movie -- especially when one gets shaken-and-cracked so he can glow and light the way through a dark passageway -- like a glow stick!
