Movies, Movies, Movies

Have you ever gone to the movie theater to see a movie more then once?

I have several times! Between 1977 and 1979 I saw Star Wars 12 times. Yes, TWELVE times! Remember these were the days when once you saw a movie at the theater you never knew when you were going to see it again and ticket prices were around $2.00. I also saw Star Wars when they brought out the 20 year release in 1997! So that makes 13 times!

I saw Titanic, Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Rings, and Stars Episode III Revenge of the Sith each twice at the theater. Now a days when I see a movie more then once it's because I go with different people to see the movie at different times. Maybe the hubby or one of the kids or my sister.

This was the case with the new Star Trek. I have seen it 4 times!!!! Once with the hubby and daughter, once with just the daughter, with my sister, and again with the hubby.

But I loved all 4 times!! It was great. If you're a fan of Star Trek, a fan of movies, or science fiction and you haven't seen it yet GO! You will love it! I did!

4 Times and I have the ticket stubs to prove it!

A family weekend!

Our Memorial Day weekend was GREAT! We had a fun family weekend. First off, the fun began when John came home for the weekend!! Since he lives in Tennessee and about 700 miles away, we love talking to him on the phone and emailing over the internet but nothing beats having him in the same room with you! Nothing.

On Sunday, we went for family bike ride to one of our favorite places - Ohiopyle State Park, PA - and rode bikes on the The Great Allegheny Passage.

Sara ready to go biking!

Grandma, Mommy, and Jackson getting ready to hit the trail.

John getting ready to bike. He's hasn't done this since he was a boy scout!

Lori having fun! That's the Youghiogheny River.

Mommy and baby taking a bottle break.

The whole gang on the trail - John, Sara, Me & Jackson in front - Lori, Aaron, and Paul in the back.

John half way done the ride at Ramcat Rapids.

Paul at Ramcat Rapids too. Do you think he is a Steelers fan????

Jackson, Aaron, Sara, and Lori only went part way. But they met us at the halfway point - Confluence PA. It's our turn around point. 11 miles from Ohiopyle. And 11 miles back to Ohiopyle!!!
We had a nice lunch at the Sister's Cafe in Confluence. They make a great steak sandwich.

Looks like he's getting used to it!

Our kids - John, Sara, & Lori
