Friday night movies and a Sunday in the land of marine

what more could you ask for out of a weekend...besides dollar store princess high heels.
Friday night is our night to watch movies around here. Lady A gets to pick one movie(usually a Diego action packed adventure) and Mister and I usually pick 2 and get through 1.  When we started our "year of no TV" oh those so many weeks (5) ago we were renting from Blockbuster but quickly realized that it was costing about $24 each weekend and for that price we could have upgraded our cable.  So off to the library I go each Wednesday to pick out our movies of course with the help of Lady A.  The branch that I visit doesn't really have the best selection but we try to make the most of it.  This weekend we popped our popcorn, poured our peach fizzy drink and watched Cinderelmo...which was quite entertaining for all 3 of us. Mister and I watched the Life and Death of Peter Sellers.  I really enjoyed this movie considering I didn't have a clue who Peter Sellers was before the movie but like I said we make the best of our choices. The movie that we didn't watch was Capote so I guess we will be renuing it until next movie makes my choosing a little easier for next week.

 We spent the day today at Marineland in Niagara Falls and we had the best fall weather for our day outside.  Lady A had been there with us earlier this summer and has been chatting about it ever since (although it didn't appear that she was enjoying her self at the time).  This time she loved every minute of it..which made the steep admission a little easier to handle.  We watched the dolphin show TWICE and rode the ladybug roller coaster FOUR times and ate junk food pretty much all day.  What more could a kid ask for... well she did have some other demands that we refused to fill but it was a great day for all of us.
