Avatar the last Airbender 3D

Last night I went to see Avatar the last Airbender in 3D. I had seen in but not in 3D. I liked the movie both times but personally I thought it was better not in 3D. There were no real special features. If the movie was made for 3D I feel it would have been better if it had stuff jumping out at you etc. I also found that it was hard to see the characters due to the 3D. So in my opinion the 3D should be saved for a movie that it was really made for. I definitely recommend seeing this movie, but don't spend the extra money for 3D.

This is my baby cousin Critter. Ok, so he's not so much of a baby now, but in my eyes he'll always be my baby cousin. One of his favorite summer activities is to come over to auntie e's and have fun with auntie and cousin Lyd. So for the fourth of July he came over and had some fun in the pool. In a couple weeks he might come up for some more fun. So I need to be prepared with activities for the little monster. He's 6 and has a boat load of energy. So my question is what good ideas do you have to entertain a 6 year old around the house and on vacation in the car?

Avatar the last Airbender and a busy monday

It was an amazing movie!! I used to watch the cartoons and thought they were ok, so I was kind of iffy about seeing it in theatres, but i'm glad I did. One of my favorite actors is Jackson Rathbone and he did a good job in this movie. I also thought they did a great job making the characters look like the ones in the cartoon. The theater we go to is a small theater that we can get to in about 5 minutes through back roads through the woods. We can usually get in for free because we have movie passes, however they have been giving us problems with the passes lately. We're supposed to get 2 tickets for one pass. The theater is not the company which the passes are but they had been giving people with these passes the 2 tickets anyway. Well lately they have been giving people problems such as those are only for certain movies, or I can only give you one. The theater also has not been doing movies in 3D and I really wish to see avatar in 3D. So today I am having my boyfriend, Adam, over for some swimming and icecream. Then my family will be trekking out to the expensive theater by the mall to see Avatar 3D. I'll let you know how it goes.

My favorite part of summer

Swimming!! It's been up to 105 degrees here lately. Lots of power outages, broken AC's but our pool is up and running! We got some new toys and a new ladder, it's a nice place to relax in the afternoon when the temps are really up there. What's your favorite thing to do in the summer ?

The Ice Cube

This is the ice cube. It's a neat floaty that you can swim in through holes on all 4 sides. At first it was thought to be a nuisance since it took forever to bow up, but it makes for a good water battle. What's your latest summer gadget?

Happy Independance Day a day late

Yesterday was very busy. We had family over and spent some time in the pool. We had kebabs for lunch and lots of treats. We made cookies and peanutbutter bars, we also made Fudge pops. After that I had a friend over and my family and me and my friend went to the military base for a carnival and some fireworks. The kids loved it and the fireworks were amazing. That's the advantage of going to a military base, they love to blow things up. What did you do for the fourth?
