We had a great Valentine's Weekend!
Saturday we had a quiet day at home. Just the way we like it. I will tell you more about our Valentines traditions later, but for now I want to tell you about the movies we saw this weekend.
For our Valentines date in we watched Fireproof together. What a great movie. Cheesy acting, but really great movie. I am so glad that we watched this movie together. It is a great reminder of the need to be more deliberate in our relationships. Something we have already been working on this year but have now been even more challenged...dared...to love each other with purpose. If you have not seen this movie yet, I recommend it!
Then on Sunday we got to have our date night out. We are in a babysitting co-op with our neighbors that have two kids very close in age to our two. Parker and Peyton are great kids and they get along with our two very well. It is actually easier to watch the four of them than it is to just watch my two. We usually keep them from about 4 in the afternoon until 8. It is just enough time for the kids to play, eat dinner, and then watch a movie while their parents have enough time to see a movie and go to dinner or just get takeout and rent a movie and stay in for the evening. It is a great setup for all of us. That is a picture from the last time we watched them. Tomorrow P & P will be at our house while their parents get their night out.
For our night out, we decided to enjoy the traditional movie and dinner date. The movie we chose to see was Taken on the recommendation of my friend Kim. I expected it to be somewhat predictable but it was more of an on the edge of your seat kind of movie. The best part is that it is rated PG13 so it kept me on the edge of my seat without screaming too many words at me that I would rather not hear! I would recommend this movie too!
Now, I also have to say that after seeing the preview for 12 Rounds at the theater tonight, I am looking forward to its release this spring. Maybe we will be able to work out our babysitting co-op so that we can go see it too.
So, tell me, have you seen any good (non-animated) movies lately? Is there something we should take the time to go see or to rent?
