My Aunt Pat just celebrated her 80th birthday a couple of days ago on Monday. So, this past weekend we had a little get-together at her house on Saturday since Father's Day was Sunday. My mom got the cake and ice cream and the family all brought her some gifts to mark the occasion.
Afterwards we took her out to eat at Green Tomato Buffet on Woodruff Rd then we took my mother-in-law out to see the new DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon 2 since she, too, is celebrating a birthday this week. The sequel is every bit as good as the first if not better! Hiccup finds his long lost mother and faces a new enemy named Drago who is amassing a dragon army to impose his twisted will. See what I did there?
Yesterday was the day Tessa and I have been waiting for ever since our DC trip when we went to go see The LEGO Movie. We went right after visiting the National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center since we had some free time. She was initially skeptic about my choice of movie to see but I told her to trust me on that one. She did and she loved it! So we were waiting for the movie to drop on Blu-ray which it did yesterday so I picked up a copy on my way to the station.
I picked up the Everything is Awesome Edition which contains both the 3D and standard versions as well as a LEGO Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman's character) minifigure among other fun stuff like outtakes and numerous featurettes. The one thing that is seemingly missing from what I can see thus far is the "Behind the Bricks" featurette which is hilarious! To make up for said shortcoming, here's the YouTube vid:
Mmmmm....listen to that rich molasses!
