We are HUGE Harry Potter fans & have been anticipating Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince for a very long time. The girls & I got hooked one weekend in March when ABC Family had a "Harry Potter" weekend. Before then we had never seen one minute of Harry Potter anything. We LOVED every single one! In fact, the Easter Bunny found a killer deal on the entire Blu Ray collection, all 5 movies. I can honestly say that we have watched at least one Harry Potter movie every single week since then, usually more than one. Did I say we LOVE them because we really, really LOVE them?!?
So yesterday we loaded up the girls & headed to Provo to see Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince. Of course we LOVED it even though it was very, very sad. There are many unanswered questions that I have been thinking about all day long (pathetic, I know). Now we are all anticipating the release of the movie on Blu Ray. You're all probably wondering why we would travel to Provo to go see a movie that was playing in Richfield, Gunnison, & Ephraim, right? Well, my Mom invited us to her summer swim/bbq party her boss hosts at the Scera Pool in Orem. We figured why not go see the movie in a nice, new, comfortable theatre rather than an old, run down, very uncomfortable one (sorry to bash on the locals but I know you are all shaking your heads in agreement right now). It was worth it! I love being able to see over the people in front of me (don't you dare laugh at that comment Tweeb) & so do my kids. Of course Brayd never has to worry about that but he was pumped for the comfy seat. Anyways, after the movie we headed to the Scera Pool to eat some dinner. We had pizza, pop, & lots of yummy desserts. Ainsley & Addison barely ate a thing because they were so excited to swim. The pool is awesome, especially the pool for kids. It has a beach entry & only gets up to 3 feet deep. It has a slide, waterfall, spilling buckets, & a sprinkling tunnel. There is also a sprinkler park (is that what you would call it?). You know, where there are tons of cool, fun things that just sprinkle. There are also 3 big water slides & a lap pool with diving boards. We had a blast!!
What a fun day. I love when we can do fun things that we all love together as a family. It's the best!!!
