Iron Man on the lawn

After my bike ride this morning I went up to see mstutts son's graduation party. Had a good time time there. zavyn clearly went beyond the call of duty grilling all of that food for hours in that stifling heat outside.

I got a series of phone calls from my nephew wanting me to come down to Chapel Hill to see Iron Man with him. His sister was having some kind of Fairy Sleepover, so it was just Quinn and Papa (my brother, healingdrysuits). Apparently Southern Village just outside the Lumina theater has a movie every Saturday on the lawn with a HUGE screen. I had no idea that Southern Village was that large and had so much shopping all these years.

We got a spot right near the front of the screen. There were serious audio problems and we were about to leave 10 minutes into the movie as the problems were just ruining the experience, but they fixed it and there was a huge applause from the crowd. Quinn got comfy in my lap so he could snuggle. I really liked the movie and it was nothing like what I expected. I would definitely get this on Blu-ray. The lawn experience was good, but the audio definitely did not do it justice. I definitely need to hear that on my system. ;)

You are too cute with the kidlets!

It made me smile.

Thanks! That picture is getting old too. They are much bigger now. Still does not keep the nephew from taking flying leaps at me. It's his way of giving you a big hug. :)

We saw it last weekend and we were supposed to see "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" this weekend, but we have not. I will probably see a couple of movies while Mark is in CT.

I liked "Iron Man" but I thought it was slow in spots and Robert Downey Jr. is still weird to me. Like I keep waiting for him to end up back in rehab or something. Here's to hoping he stays clean, though.

Yeah, all I kept thinking was, "OK, now, is he high again?"

Apparently he is clean.

Yep, they are great kids. Quinn loves to snuggle all the time.

Yay for nephew-movie outtings! I know that feeling well :)

I need more of them too. I just need more time with Quinn and Zoe period. They're growing up too fast to ignore them. Need to take advantage of this time.

How old is your nephew again?
