Yep, we went to see Rio 2 yesterday. Clive suggested that he’d go and buy a bike shed instead … but I insisted he come along to the 10th birthday party with 12 kids. Quite frankly I would have preferred to wander around looking at sheds at Bunnings too.
Especially for this movie. I went to Frozen, twice, without complaint (and sometimes I sing the songs in the car). But Rio 2 isn’t the best movie in the world. It is fine, but definitely a sequel, you know … quite a lot of padding and not a lot of substance.
However, the kids didn’t mind. They had lots of fun. As it was at lunchtime I made little lunchboxes for them all. I included sushi, popcorn, a lolly bag, a chocolate chip biscuit and a drink. Enough junk to see them through 2 hours. And then we had cup cakes for a birthday cake afterwards.
I took along my designated ‘picnic bag’ to carry some of the food. This is a bag that I love.
I found my ‘picnic bag’ at hard rubbish. But I don’t really think of it as hard rubbish as it was just the neighbours hard rubbish … which is sort of nearly just a gift?? It is quite attractive and timeless on the outside … but very fun inside!
Check it out … it is the perfect size for picnics. And it has some little pockets in the lining that are big enough for serviettes or cutlery if needed. I keep it at the front of the roof storage area in the studio, along with the soft esky. These are the two things I pull out most often to use.
Ha – Holly (big sister), took Luke (little brother) to see Rio 2 during the school holidays. Afterwards I asked Luke what he thought. “I just went because I knew Holly wanted to see it” was his reply!
What an adorable basket
“sort of nearly just a gift” – ha! Surely! Great picnic bag. We saw Rio 2 at the drive-in… I spent a considerable amount of time watching the other two screens and trying to decipher what movies they were..
Yes, Clive spent most of the movie on his iPhone reading the paper or checking out bikes (or sheds) or something
