Today is the last day of March Break. It has, as always gone too quickly. It's been busy. The kid's had friends over, Grace had band camp for a few days, Riley and I headed into Toronto to visit Sick Kid's, a busy week. Today is the last day. Today we are going to the movies to see The Lorax.
Normally if we went to a Cinneplex it would cost us $57.46 for myself and the 4 kids, this does not include the at least $30 .00 at the concession stand. We have discovered a jewel in the rough. There is town about 45 minutes from here called Napanee. In Napanee there is a little movie theatre called
"The Boulevard Cinema". It is not high tech, it is not flashy, or new. The seats are old school, and a little well loved (that's the nice way of saying ratty). But the price is sooo right. The price is $6.00 a person, so I can take my 4 kids to the show for $30.00, and about $15.00 for the concession. At that price I can afford to take the kids out. They even have $4.00 Tuesdays which are even better.
Today we are meeting up with friends. It is a great way to end the March Break. We have done this lots of times on PA days and on March break. We meet up with a large group of friends and their moms. The kids all sit with their friends, and the Mom's sit in the row behind them, and quietly catch up (we whisper .. I swear). It is the best of all worlds. Most times we take up one or two rows. We have a great time, and we don't have to mortgage the house, win win.
