Another Weekend Goes By

Monday 26th September, 2011

Another weekend is over and the countdown is on to the end of the year.  Only 3 more months to go.

This weekend we only had Katie overnight on Saturday.  Instead of picking her up on Friday night she was dropped off by Kerrie late on Saturday afternoon.  For her birthday Kerrie took Katie shopping at Colonades.  She had her nails painted at a nail salon and Kerrie bought her a butterfly necklace.

After dinner we decided to go to the drive-in.  They were showing The Smurfs, Zookeeper and The Abduction.  For $22 per carload you pay for however many movies you want to see.  If you want to stay for 1 movie it's $22, 2 movies is $44 and 3 movies is $66.  Katie didn't want to see The Smurfs but wanted to see Zookeeper.  That was scheduled to start at 9.00pm. 

We left home just after 8.00pm and already the line-up was long.  We got to the end of the queue and waited, and waited.  The first movie had finished and people slowly began leaving the drive-in.  It was well after 9.30pm before they allowed letting the cars in.

Zookeeper was OK, the story line was a bit pathetic, but the animals made up for it.  Katie enjoyed it and we got a few laughs out of it.  It didn't finish until 11.50pm. Unbeknown to us, Jodi had gone to see The Smurfs with Taylor.  She said the lineup for that movie was sooooo long as well and it took ages getting the cars in, so consequently it was late in starting which then put the other movies behind time.

On Sunday Katie wanted to go swimming down at Marion again.  Before we went we had to go and buy her some new bathers.  They didn't have the diving boards open this time but she and Tony had just as much fun diving off the edge of the deeper pools.  She still has to master the technique of pushing off with her legs.  She has accomplished so much with her swimming and we have every confidence in her swimming in deeper water.
