The Minnesota Zoo, or "Joo" as Libs called it. Yep, we went today thanks to the Museum passes from the library or it surely would've cost us 50 smackers to get in the place. A beautiful day to spend with the kids and the animals! God is truly amazing! Some of the creatures out there are just bizarre!!!! Anyway, this post is not really about the zoo but the Imax. We went to see the Lion show in 3d. Cool. I don't remember the last time I had to put on those giant Big Bird glasses. We got into the theatre after we got our popcorn and soda and prepared to watch the show. All the kids had their glasses on (which were bigger than their heads) when the countdown began. They were amazed at the way the animals and everything else was poppin out before their eyes but kept having to push their glasses back up cuz they were so gigantic. They were doing the wave your hand in front of you and try to grab the lion or bird-you know. My sister and I were making jokes like, "great, the lions gonna claw our eyes out," and on and on. When the lions got really loud one time Levi said, "mom, I'm freakin' scared!" He kept pulling his glasses down and my sister and I kept saying, "get 'em on!" Finally Jace leans over and says, "mom, my glasses are foggy." I was like, "what?" I reached over and grabbed them and looked through. Sure enough they were-foggy with POPCORN BUTTER! I then tested out everyones glasses and they all had the popcorn smear. Oh well, at least it lasted til 3/4 through the show! I gave Jace mine and Libs didn't seem to mind and Levi watched without. I don't know how he could stand it! He probably just thought it was a bad vcr tape or something. So, the moral of the story? NO popcorn in Imax with kids under 8!!!!
