Kung-Fu Panda!

I made up a chore/reward chart for the kids to help them to earn some cool summer activities. First up on the list was the dreaded toy room! I wanted it clean. Not just kinda clean, but clean enough for me to clean the carpets clean. They did a great job with some mean encouragement from me so we were off to see Kung-Fu Panda! Now I have never taken all the kids to a movie. Carl and I have taken the tree older ones a few times and it has always been pretty painful. Needless to say I was a little apprehensive but wasn't going break my promise. Lucky for me Auntie Laura wasn't busy so we met up with her, got our popcorn and sat down. I can not even begin to tell you how wonderful the kids were!! Even Calleigh(1yr) and Georgia(2yrs) were super quiet and well behaved. I was so thrilled I gushed about it all the way home. I can't wait to take them to another movie soon!

The reward worthy toy room. No before picture way too embarrassing!

Me and the babies! (Yes Lunden will always be the baby of the family whether he has 2 younger sisters or not :p)

Wow, you are so brave taking the whole family to the movies. I think everytime I take my six year old we have to leave a couple of times for her to go to the bathroom. Glad your kids were great.
Toy room looks awesome. Love that de-clutter bug while it lasts.

I'm glad the family enjoyed the movie! Maybe we will go see it on once we get back from Ukraine with our new son.
