Judy Moody with Elora and Hailey

Dennis and I wondered why we were the only ones laughing at Judy Moody and The Not Bummer Summer. We finally decided one has to be at least a half century old to get the humor in this movie. And the theater seemed to be filled with 7 and 8 year old girls and their parents.

Hailey and Elora were totally mesmerized by it. 
No laughing, oh no. This was serious stuff to them...and the rest of the audience, apparently. 

Serious business this movie. But not the drive there.
Some more candid shots, while they were watching the previews.

The one below may look posed, 
but anyone who knows 7 and 8 year old girls would believe me when I promise it's not. 
Oh the drama.

The relief all over their faces that Judy Moody had a great summer after all. 
It was close in parts! 
Especially when Judy's best friend went off to circus camp.
(Seriously, circus camp. What parent would send their child to circus camp? )
They wanted to check out the poster again on the way out of the theater. 
They were in deep discussion.

Dennis got in the car and said, "There was no depth to that movie. At all."
Shhh! Don't tell them.

I want our granddaughter Elora and her 2nd cousin Hailey to remember these 2 days with us, so don't be surprised if I show more pictures.
They are so blessed to have each other.

I am certainly out of the loop when it comes to movies because I've never heard of this movie. The girls look like they enjoyed themselves and such fun memories they are making!!

Scrapally said...

very cute and fun! Tell Dennis there is probably more depth in the judy moody books. :) at least 8 year old depth. What fun memories they are making together!

I love these pictures, especially the candid shots of their friendship.
I saw Judy Moody twice! The first time I took my 4-year-old and 2-year-old grandkids. They were mesmerized. The 2nd time, the grandkids ranged in age from 1 to 9. They loved it too.
Dennis is right about the depth of the movie. But the kids don't care.
