Each year, the local Theater shows a special Sunday movie matinee for the Girl Scouts. This year, the movie was Trolls and today was the big day!
The four of us piled in the car and ventured out to the theater. My oldest Girl Scout is eleven, and "too old" for Troll hair and pictures. My eight year old Girl Scout made the Troll hair with her troop and made one for her movie guest, her little sister.
Everyone had popcorn, candy and a drink with the movie -- a special deal offered just for the Girl Scout event -- and the girls were blissfully happy.
As I looked around the theater, I had to smile. There were girls wearing Troll hair all around the room. The sounds of popcorn munching filled the silences, and there were plenty of giggles and smiles on all the faces, both little and big.
It was a good movie, with a good message, and a good time was had by all.
Sometimes life really IS all cupcakes and rainbows, just like Poppy said!
