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.
