Bridge to John's House

While we were in Holly wood, my folks took Sam to the Guinness World of Records Museum, we met for lunch at Mel's Drive In. Then, I took my mom and Sam to the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum while Johanna left for class.

That afternoon, we went to see Bridge to Terabithia. I remember the book getting lots of acclaim when I was young but had forgotten the gist of it. I loved the movie.

After the movie, we went to my brother's house. When John and I were making plans for the week and thinking about activities like Disneyland and Universal Studios, we asked Sam what he wanted to do. His answer was play video games with John at his house. So we did.
Sam enjoyed playing Galaga. Then, he convinced my mom to play. John took her picture.

While it looks like she is enjoying playing here, I think her smile was more about knowing her play was being documented. Thanks for being a good sport, Mom.

We just went to see Bridge. Oh, my gosh! What a great job they did. I was very afraid that they would do that Disney thing to it. (Think Little Mermaid which is not - until Disney - a happy story). It was well done.
Brian even got a little sniffy during it. (Even though I had read the book and it was a favorite of mine from elementary school, I didn't tell him much of the plot.)
I must say the scenes in Terabithia did explain why Sadie-dog thinks squirrels are evil.
