It was a great 4th of July. I woke up late morning and did my usual routine: brushed my teeth, drank a shake, responded to messages online, and hit the gym for cardio and weights. Since, I’m trying to take my nephew and niece to the movies every Monday night, I’ve decided to move it up to Sunday because I wanted Monday all to myself.
I looked at the reviews at www.rottentomatoes.com before we left the house and read that the The Last Air Bender had low scores, but the kids wanted to see it anyway and how could their favorite Uncle say no? From the beginning of the movie, I had to agree with rottentomatoes that this wasn’t my kind of movie, but I managed to bare with the acting. It’s definitely a kids movie. Once the show ended, I bought the kids Cold Stone Ice Cream and Jamba Juice.
I felt the day shouldn’t be over for the kids, so I accompanied them to their neighbor’s house so they could swim in their pool. It was just the three of us hanging out in the back year; I was sitting in the shade while they were swimming. It was a hot day, so I decided to throw PJ in the pool.
At night, we celebrated the 4th at my brother’s house with a BBQ party and watched the fireworks. PJ was a champ; usually I hear complaints that the noise from the fireworks scares their dogs, but PJ acted like nothing was happening or acting deaf. I had a nice holiday weekend with my family.
