I was not ready for the holiday week to end after Thanksgiving. I don’t think anyone was, so we stretched it out to the very last second and went to see a movie on Sunday night all together for family movie time! We went to the local AMC Theatre to watch the Penguins of Madagascar.
While we were there, we got to try out the new Coca-Cola Freestyle Machines! When you head to AMC Theatres, you can now get your drink on with this mega-machine that gives you over 100+ drink choices at your fingertips!
My husband loves to seek out places with the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine because he can get lime in his Coca-Cola, which is his favorite drink. I love it because they have so many Zero flavors. You can get Fanta Peach Zero if you want. You can’t even find that flavor in the grocery store.
We got there with just a couple minutes to spare, so we put all the kids in the movie to watch the previews, and Nate and I went to grab everyone’s choice of snacks from the concession stand.
I was thrilled they had the new Freestyle machine. I mean where else can you find Powerade Zero, Vanilla Barq’s, and Sprite Peach?
Have you seen the new penguin movie? The Penguins of Madagascar was hilarious! We’ve taken the kids to see all the Madagascar movies, but I think this one was the funniest. It had something for all ages. My teenager was thrilled Benedict Cumberbatch was in it. I thought it was a great movie for the whole family to see.
There are so many puns with celebrity names in this movie. I keep imagining the writers sitting around wondering, “How can we work Kevin Bacon’s name into a pun…” In the movie, Dave the octopus (the villian) keeps giving his octopus minions orders like, “Kevin, Bake on…” or “Drew, Barry, More Power…” My husband and I giggled over them all.
When the movie was over, we got refills on our drinks for the road and headed back home to get ready to start the new week. School and work for everyone!
I think Nate and I may make it a date night in a few days and head back to see Interstellar in the IMAX. My older two kids saw it a few day ago and said it was great. I can’t wait to go back!
