Our Halloween night was supposed to look like this… trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, then a Halloween Festival at a nearby church, and last, a viewing of Jurassic World. I visioned the kids and I and Tim sitting on the couch together, a blanket covering our laps, popcorn in hand and Mike and Ike’s and Peeps on our snack plates. Maybe you see where I’m going with this. It didn’t happen. Tim and I talked about what we thought was going to be such a fun night for a week before Halloween. It would be a Halloween night unlike any other, we thought. Well, it was. It was the quietest Halloween ever. Madelyn was sick and Sebastian went to a friend’s house. That left Tim and I taking care of Madelyn who was in no condition to stay up to watch a movie. We took her to the Halloween Festival but left soon after because she had a coughing attack. 🙁
I am sort of glad Madelyn didn’t watch it with Tim and I once we had time to watch it as she is very sensitive to violence, which this movie does not lack – but in a fun way for kids over 12 or so and who can handle some gore and suspense. If you haven’t already seen Jurassic World, now is the time to plan a date night or family movie night! This movie is fast paced, energetic and even the dinosaurs were full of character. The CGI was wonderfully done allowing us to feel like we were flying in the world of dinosaurs ourselves.
I think I’ve only been to a movie once in my life when I didn’t have popcorn. Having a special snack is a huge part of the movie experience to me. Mike & Ike and Peeps candy have Jurassic World themed candies for a limited time so get them while you can! Mike & Ike are available in Jurassic World themed boxes and feature a variety of tropical fruit flavors with a mystery-flavored ‘Dino Egg’ bean inside. Peeps offers fans Peeps Jurassic World Marshmallow Eggs!
