Escape From New York

During our weekly movie nights, I often take the boys through a series. Recently we did The Terminator movies and The Matrix films. We coupled reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books with viewing both the BBC mini-series and the more recent feature film adaptation, and we did the same thing with the Harry Potter books/movies, but this weekend was a big one. We took on Escape From New York and the next day because our trip to the pool was cut short by thunderstorms, Escape From L.A.

Afterward we checked out some righteous poster art, cause nothing reinforces an awesome book/film like super badass art.

8 year old will swear that Siracha makes anything edible. Tonight it was orange chicken + Siracha = clean plate... and I suspect singed nose hairs.

What I'm Reading to the Boys

We take turns picking the books, but these are the last several titles I've read to them...
