On Friday, August 29, Jay and I took Zach to see his first movie, Ghostbusters. [Side note: I can't believe that he also turned eleven weeks on Friday...where has the time gone? I don't even remember the month of July existing!] Ghostbusters is Jay’s all-time favorite movie and when we found out it was being re-released in theaters for its 30th anniversary, we knew that not only would we be seeing it, but that it would also be the first movie we took Zachary to see.
I know what you’re thinking: How can we bring a little baby to a movie that he can’t even understand yet, expect him to behave and tell people it’s his first movie? Well, for all the party-pooping technical commentators out there, this was technically Zachary’s first trip to the movies. And yes, he did actually watch some of it. And yes, he was really well behaved, too. Here’s how the whole thing went down.:
We got advanced tickets to see the 1:00 p.m. show. We figured that since it was daytime hours during a school day and the Friday of Labor Day weekend, chances were the theater wouldn’t be crowded. Before we left the house, Jay and I decided that naturally, we’d have to be that family who wears matching t-shirts with the logo of a 30-year-movie to see said movie in theaters. Zach had received two Ghostbusters onesies as presents (THANK YOU SO MUCH Vikas and Bonnie!) in two different sizes and colors, so he was covered. Jay was set because he has like 30 different Ghostbuster t-shirts anyway, so it was just a matter of finding one of Jay’s t-shirts small enough to fit me. Luckily, one did. So, we were all set and ready to start our movie adventure, but not before we (of course) took a picture.Shop Amazon Outlet - Clearance, Markdowns and Overstock Deals
