The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

More Summer Movies and Father's Day!

We've had a great start of the weekend so far! Keira and I went to UTC to go meet Uncle Rod for lunch at Red Robin. He said that he didn't even know that they existed up until a couple of years ago. I'd never even been to one all the years they have been around. I'll tell you, I've been missing out. The food was great and what is not to love about bottomless french fries, huh? WOO HOO! :D

We're celebrating an early Father's Day today since Dan has to work tomorrow. We started the day out taking Keira to see Kung Fu Panda this morning and she did GREAT! Yay us! :) There were some scenes that were a little intense for her and she started to get a little antsy the last 15 minutes or so, but all in all, she did fantastic! It was pretty early in the morning, so there weren't alot of people which was good. The people that were there all had kids, so that way if she started to get a little freaked out, it would be ok. I LOVED it. It was so well done and there was just enough funny stuff with Jack Black to keep the parents amused. I laughed out loud several times through the movie and I think that you all will love it as well.

Dan and I also snuck away to see Indiana Jones this past week as well. It was great to see Harrison Ford back as Indy again, but I have to be honest... I didn't like it as anywhere near as much as the other ones. It was good, but I think that Dan and I have gotten to analyze things and situations too much in our older age LOL. We were just too perplexed about why anyone would take the skull in the first place...but hey....that is just us :)

I WAS excited to see the Happening at first when it was announced, but it's not getting that great of reviews. That could mean nothing, since the critics seem to hate M. Night, but we'll see. I can't wait to see The Mummy 3, but that definitely is going to be one that Dan and I will have to sneak away for. No WAY Keira would be able to watch that!

A wonderful Happy Early Father's Day to all of you great Dads out there! Have fun!

Wow you were able to bring her to a movie? I haven't tried that yet. If Olivia's not strapped down, she won't sit still!

Our local theater has family movies during the summer where they post that if you'll be disturbed by children making some noise, don't come. I think we may try going there (it's free so if we have to leave I won't feel badly). I haven't tried bringing Jess to a regular movie yet.

You might be surprised Amy! Keira is a little spaz, but with everything going on with a movie and such a big screen, she definitely was fascinated and sat still most of the time. I first tried to bring Keira last summer to see Shrek 3 and Surf's Up. She did ok, but her attention span has definitely gotten much better enough to be able to handle sitting still for longer now!

The family showings that movie theatres have like Paula mentioned might be a great place to start if you want to see if she will sit still for a movie!
