Summer is almost over.
I don’t know about you but I am tired. As a stay-at-home mom, I’ve been with my kids EVERY SINGLE DAY for the ENTIRE SUMMER BREAK.
We took road trips, we worked on our new house, we swam every day, we played, we bbq’d, we laughed, we cried, and we (me) hid in the bathroom for quiet time whenever possible.
We also had lots of lazy days and nights at home, which I love since I’m a homebody/mommy hermit.
We had many, many movie nights and many of those movies we streamed from Netflix. Have I mentioned my love for Netflix? Yes I have, but just to reinforce the point – I love me some Netflix.
With small kids, we’ve seen (been forced to watch) every possible animated movie ever released, so whenever possible, we try to expose them to something else.
Among the flicks we watched, we saw Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and National Treasure, or as my kids refer to them, The bald guy Movie and The Nicholas Cage movie.
We tend to stick to funny movies and adventure flicks with the kids, so these were well received. Besides, how can you not enjoy classic Nicholas Cage???? You can’t. You just can’t. Don’t even bother trying.
Yes, the story lines might be a tad ridiculous and unbelievable but that’s what movies are all about. Also, Nicholas Cage can do no wrong (if you don’t believe me, just watch Face/Off or ConAir).
If you need an adventurous movie night with the family, try one of these flicks. Then again, if you have Netflix, your options are endless. If you don’t have it yet, it’s the best $9/month you’ll ever spend.
