The story about the day we went to watch Monsters University...


About-today 

So this was a story that needed to be recorded for several significant reasons...

1. My brother actually did something nice.. [Eh...it doesn't happen very often...]

Usually when he calls on Sunday morning, it means that child-sitting is involved and my day of mixed media fantasy gets thrown out of the window [this happens rather frequently...]. But today, he actually called to ask if my mother and I wanted to go watch Monsters University with him and littlest nephew J. He would even come over to pick us up. Wow. Even though I had a red-eye flight to catch that night, I couldn't really pass up on this right? *winks*



2. We almost didn't get to go.

He came early and parked right outside the main gate. But when it was time to go, the engine wouldn't start at all..[dramatic music plays in the background]. He called the Volkswagon Service Centre and a tow truck was expected to come by in an hour. Now, the movie was in 30 minutes and since he parked his car right outside the main gate, we couldn't get the family car out either....[sad music plays in the background...]


3. It was littlest nephew J's first movie.

He was pretty excited since his brothers had already seen the movie... [okay the pictures were of him pretending to be sad for documentation purposes...*LOL*]...


4. The tow truck came by in 10 minutes.

Fortunately, the tow truck driver was just 10 minutes away and successfully towed my brother's car to the workshop...and we could drive the other car to the cinema! :)


5. We made it in time to watch the trailer!

So given the speed demon that my brother was, we made it in time to watch the movie in its entirety! [Okay...the cinema was like 15 minutes away..]

OMG, what a fabulous way to remember his first movie! And what a panicked adventure - my kids wouldn't be able to enact the sadness (it would be real!) even at their ages, so good for J :)

What a great story! I love that you documented it on a layout. Too bad you can't include the dramatic/sad music (and then triumphant music) on the page as they added a lot to the story.

The boldness of the design and the background drew me in but it was the detail and the journalling on the photos that held my eye!
