We ended up touring Cerreta Candy. Sure, I spent the MLK birthday holiday at a chocolate factory and I am the secret architect of Wal*Mart's video recommendation software if you really want to know. Victoria made a chocolate pizza, we ate a bunch of free samples. Then we hit a thrift store for a bagful of plastic farm animals and then the grocery store for lunch items. We ate lunch on the balcony, then played farm until Brian got back.
I looked at movie theaters nearby and the only thing I thought V could bear was Dreamer, which was playing at the $2 place 10 minutes away. I thought it would be a good thing for a girl who had gone napless all day, but Brian decided to skip it. Fine, more popcorn for us. Except the popcorn was awful. So was the movie but Victoria was totally into it. I was worried at first because she was scared of the dark theater, scared of the previews (Chicken Little got her very worked up, then she was ready to bolt out of the theater when they showed Zathura), and scared of, yes, the folding seats. But the movie was about a girl and a horse and scary parts were brief and mild.
