Now that we’re expecting #2 in March, its really important to me to spend some good quality time with my #1 before she makes her arrival. I’m not sure JP realizes yet exactly how much of my attention a newborn baby will consume once it all becomes reality. So as a surprise yesterday afternoon when I picked him up from school, I told him that we were going to see a movie – just me and him!
He’s been wanting to see Big Hero 6 for quite awhile now, and between the busy holidays and work I haven’t had a good opportunity to take him. Sometimes its really worth it to just say ‘Surprise!!’ and do it – their reactions can be priceless!
We got our tickets and made our way inside the AMC Theatres and then towards the concessions stand. More than popcorn, JP was only interested in what type of candy I’d let him have! As for me, I got a large, buttery popcorn and a Coca-Cola to go with it. Since I knew he would need a drink as well, I purchased an extra one just for him. He was so excited to get to choose his drink!
Here’s my dilemma with concessions at the movies – most of the local theatres only offer soda options which causes me to sneak in juice boxes whenever we go to the movies. JP doesn’t drink soda yet, and at 5 years old I feel like he’s way too young to develop a taste for it. That’s why I was thrilled to see that this particular AMC Theatres with Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, which opened up a ton of new options.
What’s really cool is that you choose the drink variety you want, and in the next screen you choose the flavor of that drink creating a unique drink, just the way you want it. JP wanted lemonade, and then he had the option of adding flavors like strawberry, fruit punch, raspberry.. etc.
Then you push the big button to pour!
I feel like it adds extra fun to the whole movie-going experience to allow your kids the freedom to make their own drink. Not all AMC Theatres are equipped with Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, so be sure to check and see if you have one nearby by using the AMC Theatres app.
