John woke up this morning determined to get all his paperwork done, but really and truly, he was in the mood to play! The little boys had movie gift certificates from Christmas, so we took them to see The Spiderwick Chronicles this afternoon, where we ran into Christina, Zach and Madison. What fun! Afterwards, we used the Chick-Fil-A coupons they won at the Valentine's party yesterday, then John browsed Best Buy and Circuit City while the boys played all the latest video games. After we got home tonight, Philip and I went on a concert date to see the Symphony Pops play John Williams. They've been talking this up in children's chorus for several weeks now, so when John got free tickets at work, Philip was thrilled. They played music from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, E.T., Superman, Harry Potter, Jurrasic Park, and best of all: Star Wars! Even better, Obi Wan, Princess Leia, Storm Troopers, Darth Vader and lots of other characters showed up! It was a fun concert for Philip's first "real" trip to the symphony. Philip has definitely had a busy weekend!
