RV the movie

Over Labor Day weekend we had lots of birthday plans for Lou who turned 5 on Monday. We went mini-golfing and to McDonald's and rented RV. What a fun movie. Turned out it's rated PG and has a few swear words and the homeschool mom wears very showy clothing, but when it was over my kids asked, "were there any bad words?" I guess most of it just goes over their heads. Yes, this movie has a homeschooling family as one of the main characters. Robin Williams tricks his high tech, disconnected family to take an RV to Colorado (for a business meeting which the family doesn't know about) for a vacation instead of going to Hawaii. After many hilarious mishaps (especially if you've ever taken a camper or RV anywhere) they meet up with a family; turns out, they homeschool on the road. Although they have their quirks, they are happy with one another and well grounded people. Robin William's family learns a lot from them and in the end his family realizes that together is where they want to be. I can't wait to see it again.

As for Lou's 5th birthday it turned out great except for the part where we had to cancel the party because of grandma needing emergency care. Everything is better now and turns out she has a bad case of arthritis in her knee.
