Hannah and I went to the movies today. For the longest time I knew that the Penn Theater had a kids movie on Thursdays during the summer, but because it was the only day that we had a car, other things ended up happening for us. Well, now that we have a car, those other things happen at other times and we got to go to the movie today! Kung Fu Panda 2 was playing today, but the theater was the star of the show. It's one screen in the middle of Plymouth. It was like walking right into the past! The theater was dark, comfy and there was no surround sound! We will definitely be going again next summer.
I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.
