Family Home Evening - To the Movies! Ponyo

For FHE tonight we went to the movies! This is only Kayley's 2nd trip to the movie theater (after we went to go see UP! a few months ago). She did even better this time than she did last time.
Of course we bought some M&Ms...how can anybody go to the movies with out buying a 6 dollar bag of candy...(cough - strangle - expensive!).

We decided to see Ponyo.
It is the only thing playing in the theaters right now that is rated G.Ponyo is a magic fish-girl who runs away from her under water home to see more of the world. When she gets stranded on the beach she is rescued by Sōsuke.
Sōsuke and Ponyo become great friends and love each other dearly, but Ponyo's dissapearance from the sea brings an imbalance to the world.
The moon comes out of its orbit and satellites are falling from the sky like shooting stars.
Granmamare, Ponyo's sea mother, arrives and declares that if Sōsuke can pass a test, (that he will love Ponyo no matter what happens to her) then she can live as a human and the world order will be restored. I won't tell you how it ends...but it was an interesting movie.
Odd, but interesting.
Kayley liked it and I was surprised at how well it held her attention.
