a bookish mom of two daughters, and her wannabe fairyland world.
I have never actually seen The Goonies!
Total '80s classic. I saw it 3 times in the theater, including my 8th birthday party. ;o) There is some language, for anyone who especially objects, but it's so much fun.
Fun day!!!! Have your kids seen Bedknobs & Broomsticks? We just recently watched that one (it's long!) and Julia liked it.
I think I may have showed Big Sis Bedknobs and Broomsticks, but it would have been so long ago, she wouldn't remember it. We had it on a VHS taped off the Disney Channel growing up, but I have no idea if my dad still has the tape. I should try to get a hold of it this summer. I love that movie, and they love Mary Poppins, which is similar in length. Monsters U. is playing at the drive-in, starting this Friday. I think we're going to try seeing it next week! It will be a late night, but it would be so much fun.
I remember seeing that on TV a long time ago. Very funny and exciting! Indoor picnics are great. And much easier to eat (without pestering ants) and to clean up!
The picnic was Mr. B's idea. It worked for me!
I love The Goonies! Brings back childhood summer memories... Your indoor picnic is awesome, like something Charlie and Lola would do! :O)
It's so much fun. And yay! I hadn't thought of Charlie & Lola, but I love them, so I'll take it. ;o)
We are big Goonies fans! On a recent road trip we brought it along for the kids to watch... it was just as much fun for Trapper and I to listen to as it was for the kids to watch!!! Have you watched Raising Hope at all? We love seeing Stef (Martha Plimpton) as Virginia... Child actor all grown up and on a sitcom? Awesome (so many end up homeless...)
I haven't watched Raising Hope yet - it's on my queue - but I know she's on it. She's had a pretty great career. I also love her in the movie Parenthood, and she's done a lot of theatre work! Did you know her dad is Keith Carradine? It's funny to see such a young Josh Brolin and sweet little Sean Astin, too. (Hmm, two more kid actors with famous parents...)
Comments are welcome! I'm a shy blog commenter, too, but I do love to read what people have to say. All I ask is, please be kind, to me and to each other.
