Mommy & Me Monday: 7/26

we took BigGirl to see Ramona and Beezus this weekend. it was a total surprise- she had no idea where we were going and didn't even know what movie we were seeing until the opening title appeared on the screen. she was completely surprised and thrilled to see her favorite book characters come to life on the big screen.

she has read 3 books in the Ramona series and they are her current favorite chapter books. we loved that the movie showed scenes from the books. it was really neat seeing in action what we'd read and only imagined. Ramona is just as cute and mischevious in the movie as in the book. Beezus comes across as less annoying in the movie, i thought. and i was really happy with all of the relationship dynamics- Ramona and Aunt Bea (who reminded me SO MUCH of Kristin), Howie and Ramona, Mrs. Meecham and Ramona, and Mr. and Mrs. Q. really a cute movie with a happy ending {BigGirl's favorite part was the end scene} and no bad words! the weekend AND the movie get two thumbs up from this Mama!

oh, and Bubba's face? that's his new "say cheese" pose. nice.
