Our family vacation began on August 28, so the week before that was kind of the “last week of summer” for the family.
I decided to formally observe The Last Week of Summer by finally making it to the Edmonds Theater for one of their free screenings of children’s films.
This week’s film was the original 1970s “The Muppet Movie,” a film which I myself have never seen on the big screen. Our friends Margaret, Daniel, and Laurel were able to come along, too.
Katie was delighted that they had kid-sized popcorn and sodas for $1 a piece. I was delighted to discover that “The Muppet Movie” is still funny. “I think I need directions!” “Have you tried Hare Krishna?” Oh, 1970s.
After the movie, we decided to take a stroll across the street to the Edmonds Bakery.
To tell the truth, the Edmonds Bakery doesn’t make the best baked goods. They’re fairly mediocre. The reason we go there is because of the crazy collection of cookie jars on the wall. There are hundreds of them, stacked on shelves on all four walls. It’s an excellent place to play “I Spy.”
