Tie me to a balloon...
This weekend David and I took Keyara to see the latest Pixar movie, Up. Since the release of Toy Story, we've been Pixar fans. Admittedly, Wall-e was a pretty big disappointment to us...we were actually a bit bored in the theatre. As a result, I wasn't sure what to think of the rave reviews I was hearing. But, how could we pass it up now that it's at the economically friendly Greentree Theatre!?!
We LoVeD Up!!!!
It was hilarious. It provoked reflection. It was sentimental and sad. I confess that it did indeed make me cry...to Keyara's amazement, no doubt. It was suspenseful. (ok. we're not talking Hitchcock suspense...but for a kid's movie.) It was creative. And it fed fantasy. Admission - I've always wanted to float away while holding a bunch of balloons. Who hasn't? I mean, really. Who hasn't?
Not to mention that it was just plain sweet and for a change honored married love. In the end it made me reach over for my sweet husband's hand and wish for many more adventures together.
