Jude's 1st Movie!

Jude had quite the treat this weekend {and by treat I mean holy shit no wonder we do not go see movies $30 to get in!}
Jude is 3 now and he adores his Planes book we bought him so we decided to take the plunge and take him to the movies for the first time.  We thought it would be a fun treat for just Jude, Mommy and Daddy. 
First we stopped at his favorite places to eat "Noodles and Company" - because he can get chocolate milk there!  ;)  Had a fun dinner and enjoyed the company of a very excited 3 year old!!
Mac and Cheese and Chocolate Milk...what more could you want?

We made it!!  Jude wore his Planes shirt for the occasion too! 

We told Jude he could choose a treat for the movie...he chose Skittles, his favorite candy but then of course ate Daddy's popcorn too!  Stinker!! 
When we sat down and he saw the BIG TV SCREEN he said "Daddy this is going to be awesome!"  I love that!  Such excitement and fun.  Totally worth the $30 admission and $25 snacks. 
Jude date night!  Ready to see the show!

This was my view.  Jude doesn't sit very much...ever!  So sitting for 2 hours was a lot to ask!  LOL He stood up most of the movie.  It was fine though, we had great seats so it worked out.
He did better in the theater than I thought. 
It was a great night and fun movie for Jude's 1st movie theater experience! 
When did you take your kids to the movies first?  What movie was the 1st movie your kids saw in the theater?



  1. I can not believe how absurd the prices are to go see a movie. Then if you go see the 3d movies they charge for the glasses that a good deal of them get recycled. We keep them, they work with our tv. We took our daughter to her first movie when she was 3 1/2 I believe she fell asleep half way through.

  2. Movie prices are sick, man. Which is why we always wait for it to go on Netflix or Amazon :P My son really wants to see this though so I might cave this once.

  3. Awwww... he's so cute! I think Finding Nemo was our first!

  4. Aww this is great! Our first movie was The Lorax, but Braden was REALLY young (I won free passes) and he only lasted 45 minutes and most of it was running around the theatre in a kid friendly environment! We took him to Despicable Me 2 and he did REALLY well, but we had to leave Planes about 1 hour in...he was just too tired and not into it much...but we had REALLY awful seats (3rd row!) cuz I won passes and we got there late!

  5. Looks like a great time! We have yet to take our almost 3 year old to the movies, but I want to! Every time we start a movie at home, she never finishes it all the way through. But maybe with some popcorn she would! Girl loves her some popcorn!
