Last night, as a little Mother's Day trip, Mom and I took Austin & Logan to see Rio.  Austin complained more than a little about going to see "a cartoon!", and pouted just a little when I wouldn't let him go see Fast Five (rated R...I think not!).  I have to confess, I have never been to a 3D movie.  Jaws in 3D came out when I was in high school (I think), but I never saw it.  I don't remember ever wearing the white glasses with a blue & red lens, but I have now immersed myself into the world of 3D movies!  It was COOL!  It's pretty sad when your 6 year-old says, "Mom, you'll love it in 3D!" (yes, he has seen one before me.  Last year, when I had to be at the prom for long hours...junior class sponsor...Casey took him to see "How to Train Your Dragon" in 3D; he talked about it for days!) 

So here is my review of Rio!  GO SEE THIS MOVIE!  It is so cute, the colors are wonderful, it's funny, and has a good ending.  We laughed all the way through it...maybe I was laughing because the older gentleman behind me was laughing a big, hearty, belly laugh.  All the way home Logan was singing, "Drop it, drop it, drop it low...drop it, drop it to the flo' "  We will hear about Rio for days....and that's okay.

We all decided last night that we will be seeing another 3D movie and bringing the rest of the family, including my brother, SIL, and sweet nephew.  Why did we decide this.....because Cars 2 comes out in June!  Love me some Mater! 

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmas, aunts who are like moms, mommies-in-waiting, and anyone who has ever stepped into the role of mother.  A special Happy Mother's Day to my daughter's best friend, Makenzie, who is expecting her first child (a little girl) in September.....surely they aren't old enough to be having babies??? She's only 22!  LOL (and I was 21 when Casey was born!).
