random thought...

.... from Dan.

A few days ago, I was telling a friend how much we'd enjoyed the movie UP when we saw it on opening day. In telling her about it, I shared that we all (me, the kids, friends who saw it with us) thought the boy character, Russell, was very much like Andy. Even Andy said "Mom, he's just like me!" It's really uncanny -- has me wondering if the folks from Disney have cameras in our home.

The next day, driving along with both boys in the car, Dan said to me, "Mom, you forgot one thing about Russell that's also like Andy."

"Really? What did I forget?"

"That's he's really, really nice." Said very matter-of-factly. Right there, in front of Andy. Dan thinks Andy is really, really nice AND wants to be sure we remember to say so. High praise from a little brother, if you ask me.

That IS sweet!

We saw Up... but didn't get to see it in 3D.

Well, if you've seen UP, you've practically met our Andy! Ever-present backpack, talkative, helpful, very sweet. Russell even looks a good bit like Andy (with short hair).

That's adorable! Now the hubby and I will definitely have to go see it!

That's right -- you didn't get to meet Andy when you were thru 7 yrs ago. He was in Hawaii with the grands.

Yeah, unfortunately I only remember the boys from their baby days. If I can get my husband on a plane (lol) maybe we will visit one day.

Looks like you had a blast. Glad you had a safe trip.
