On  4th of July Jeffrey's parents took us all to see the new Cars movie.  Knightley was so excited!  It was both Knightley and Mason's first movie theater experience.  Mason fell asleep for about 30 minutes of the movie and enjoyed the popcorn as much as the movie.  And Knightley loved everything.  His grandparents bought a special popcorn kid tray with a cool drink cup which he loved I think as much as the movie. He did get a little restless for about 30 minutes of the slow middle part of the movie but it was a long movie.

I thought the movie was OK.  It definitely does not compare with the other pixar movies but a good kids movie I would not mind watching again.  If you have seen Mater Tale Tales on Disney that is what this movie is just 2 1/2 hours long (Too much Mater in my opinion).

But overall the experience was a BIG success. I know it was memorable for Knightley because he often still says in his prayers, "Thank you New Cars Movie.  Thank you pop.  Thank you drink".  So cute!

Knightley is sporting his Cars gear (matching shirt and shoes) with his Dad, Nanna, and brother outside the theater.
Knightley was so excited to go in and watch the movie we had to bribe him to get this picture

This sums it up.  Knightley super happy, me happy for him,and Mason with his tongue out :)

Another day of summer.  I decided that I was going to surprise Jeffrey and mow the lawn today.  It hadn't been mowed for over 2 weeks and was starting to get out of control.  Knightley and Mason love to watch the lawn mower for a bit and then go to their favorite spot to play in, under the screened-in porch where nothing grows and where dirt/mud is plentiful.  They could literally spend all day playing in this same spot, and have the time of their life.  The same was true today.  It took me close to 2 straight hours to mow the lawn with not one interruption from the kids.  They were perfectly content playing all by themselves in the dirt.

When we leave the kitchen our back door leads into the screened-in porch.  Then we go down the porch stairs and enter dirt/mud heaven. 

 Yes, they both have colds and snotty noses.  And yes, I gave them lunch before washing them...don't judge:)

 This shirt used to be Jeffrey's.

 They are definitely brothers, they even have the same dumbfounded look.

Too cute.
