No dream is too big, and no dreamer is too small

We recently took little G to his very first movie theater experience. He has never even stepped inside one so needless to say he was super excited. I was always afraid to pay 20-30$ for the whole family to go a  movie together for him to only sit through half of it. So we waited till he was almost 4 and for the right movie that would spark his attention and keep him entertained. Turbo, was just that movie. 

 Turbo is about a snail who desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living. He gets that chance after a freak accident when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed. Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer. Turbo is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations limit his dreams.

We tried to make this as special as we could for him. So we let him pick out his own candy, got him his own special popcorn, let him pick the seats. When we got inside he was in awe of the " Giant TV screen " we brought a blanket in case he got cold and another one to shove in the seat so it wouldn't collapse on him. He brought Leonard ( his very loved blankey animal ) and we waited for the movie to start.

He sat through that whole movie and came out of it quoting parts and laughing and racing around like turbo. asking us if we remembered parts.. I was loving every minute of it! 

Cant wait to take him again!! Have you taken your little to see a movie at the theater? If so what movie did you see and how did they do?
