Hooked on 3D Movies

Well this has been the summer of 3D movies. My kids love them!! I didn't always think the story lines were that great, but the 3D effects were all very good. Today we watched this movie at home.
I thought the 3D was very good, but I wished I had seen it at the theater. I thought it would be scary for my kids, but they loved it.
Here are some of the other 3D movies we have seen this summer:

I think my favorite 3D movie of all time would have to be Journey to the Center of the Earth. Probably because I had not seen 3D like that before. The story line was also good for an adult.

Here's what I'm hooked on. Now go take a look over at Julia's Hooked on Houses to see what everyone else is hooked on today.

The Incredible Shrinking Man

Almost 2 years ago my husband set out on a quest to lose the weight he gained after we got married. I guess I was a really good cook, NOT! We ate out alot.

Here's the before.

Here's after he lost 90 pounds.

I am very proud and a little jealous. I did lose 50 pounds but gained back 20, so now I still have 80 to lose. It's a never ending battle for me.

He's taken cycling back up and was in his first race last week.

He did pretty good for his first race in 22 years. He didn't crash and he didn't come in last. We were very proud of him.

Paris Part Deux (Part II)

I am finding it very hard to be consistent with my blogging. I have the best of intentions, but most of the time I just peruse everyone elses blog. I stay up late at night peering into other peoples lives when I should be sleeping. It is so addictive. I am going to try to concentrate on keeping up with my own blog first before looking at everyone else first.

Even though my trip to Paris was several months ago, it is still fresh in my mind. It was by far the best trip I have ever taken. I think it was mostly because Paris was the place I wanted to visit the most. My husband travels there all the time on business, in fact he is going on Sunday, but I have not had the opportunity to go with him. It would be nice to go with him someday...

What else did we do in Paris? Well we spent the better part of a here.

Chateau Versaille

The home of Louis XIV was all grandeur and splendor. The French are very into likenesses and the halls were lines with statues of famous french men.

On the ground of the Chateau were beautiful gardens, more statues and some other residences including the domicile of Marie Antoinette.

The remaining days were spent revisiting the Louvre. We didn't see everything the first time. Walking around Ille Saint-Louis. Walking through the Musee D'Orsay, and visiting the artsy district of Monmatre. Monmatre is a little gem, and we found the most delicious gelato.

Someday I will return. But for now, I will always have Paris!
