Henry got to go to his first movie this week - Madagascar 3! The Mall of America theatre was showing this movie for their Toddler Tuesday activity - popcorn included, how could we not go check it out? Oma does love a good movie and enjoyed a little Madagascar 3 with us, too. Henry lasted about 40 minutes, I'd say. When he had had enough, he said "let's go back to my house now and we'll save the rest of the movie for later." He did sit very nicely for those 40 minutes, with his hands in his popcorn at all times.
Afterwards, we took a walk through Nickelodeon Universe to see if there was a ride he could go on. Henry said, "let's find 'somepin' for me." Well, it's not easy to find a ride for a 2 year old! Luckily, when he saw Nemo here (yep, one of the toys off to the side that takes a quarter to operate), he pointed it out and said, "this one's for me!" We didn't even have any quarters on us, so he shook it as hard as he could to make it "go fast." Oh, how I do love the innocence at this age, as he's perfectly content with sitting on Nemo when there were so many other things going on around him!
