Matinee Movie - Week of Jan. 13th

In my view, the only way to see a film remains the way the filmmaker intended: inside a large movie theater with great sound and pristine picture. ~Ridley Scott

Drew Carey once joked, "Welcome to Michigan...where the weather is made up and the seasons don't matter."  The forecast is always a household discussion in our family.  Cam now requests to see the nightly meteorologist updates.  It often leads to a short discussion about geography and where things are located in the U.S.

At Cam's PT session this week, Mr. Patrick tried out a therapy system called "New Gait."

It uses harnesses and bands to assist with walking and correction.  It was pretty cool to see our son accept the challenge and try it out.
Patrick always indicates that perseverance is one of Cam's best qualities.

On Friday, Ms. Amanda arrived to hang out with her buddy.  They grabbed dinner from Chick-Fil-A and watched a movie.
Meanwhile, Chris and Jane headed over to Planet Fitness for a workout.  They texted Amanda and Cam who sent a picture of their own in response to who was having more fun!

We had a gift card for the movie theater that was given to our son last April.  Even though it was gathering dust, there was no expiration.  Cam chose the movie "Dolittle" about the man who can talk to animals.  We had purchased the tickets ahead of time using the gift.  When the forecast looked ominous for Saturday, we decided we would wait and see.  After Chris spent almost two hours plowing our driveway, the city plows finally came down our road allowing the van to make its way to the movies.  The generous gift card also paid for tasty popcorn we all shared.
Dolittle received a thumbs up from all three of us and we determined it was tough to pick a favorite animal from the flick.

We know we can always see a movie in the comfort of our home but there is still something about seeing a show on the big screen that makes it a unique experience.

Camology Quotes:
When Cam gets off the bus in the afternoon, he will typically ask, "how was your day?"
After responding, we always ask him the same question.  His most recent awesome response: 
"It was great!"
"No...actually, it was fan-tabulous!"
