Lone Survivor, Grown Up Dates, and the Super Bowl

This past Sunday was a very full day. At some point Saturday I had mentioned to John that it would be great if we could find a sitter over the weekend for a few hours and just go somewhere without the kids. Saturday night at the church's annual Wild Game Supper he mentioned that same thing to his sister. Well she made it happen. So Sunday after church we all loaded up into her truck and John, his sister, her husband, and I went on a grown up date. On the agenda- lunch and Lone Survivor. I will be the first to tell you that I really didn't want to see that movie. I knew it was going to be good, it just wasn't my normal movie type. But I was out voted 3-1. I am so glad that I was.

Lone Survivor is such a great movie. I warn you to bring tissues and also if you have any military family be prepared to picture them in this movie. Based on a book that I had not read, this is the true story that will make you understand why we are fighting in the middle east. This movie makes you proud to be an American. I don't know how anyone can leave the theater without some kind of pride and sadness running through them.

After the movie, we headed home. We didn't make it before the truck had trouble. After cruising it home and making it there just in time for me to clean up the kids and make it to church (15 mins late), John and Danny set out to fix the truck. After church, Val and I watched the Super Bowl. I have to admit that I was disappointed in the whole thing. It was a horrible game, the commercials were not that great, and Bruno Mars was a little disappointing too. Although I do appreciate that my kids could actually watch the show this year. No twerking, no wardrobe malfunctions, and good clean songs. Just not what I expected knowing how much he was paid. But oh well.

SO how was your weekend? Anything exciting?
