Family movie night with We Bought a Zoo #CBias #iLovemyK9

Once or twice a month I will rent a movie at Blockbuster or from the pay per view channels on my tv. This time I decided to do things a bit differently. I had to go to Walmart to pick up a few things, including something 'yummy' for my son, and saw the movie "We Bought a Zoo" as soon as I walked in the door. The other day when I was at Walmart buying dog food cat food I saw a 'get $4 off the movie 'We Bought a Zoo' when you buy 2 specially marked packs of dog treats'. I bought those dog treats and kept the coupon. The movie was on sale for $14 something and with the coupon I had it would only be a little over $10. When I rent a movie on ppv it costs $5 so, I thought 'what the heck' and bought it.
(Just so you know, there was a $1.25 coupon on these dog treats on coupons dot com if you want to check that out.) As I said, I also had to buy something 'yummy' for my son (his word) so I thought, instead of getting something 'junky' I would look to see what kind of fruit I could find in the canned fruit aisle because I had a coupon for fruit cups. Oh my gosh. I had no idea Del Monte had so many different kinds of fruit cups, and canned fruit. I bought some fruit salad for him, and everyone else.

So, over the past few days I bought treats for everyone in my zoo. My dogs got @PupPeroni and Milo's Kitchen pet treats and @KibblesnBits dog food, my cats got @MeowMix, cat food and my family got fruit from @DelMonteFoods.

 My cats and dogs ate their treats and we got ready to watch our movie. They had no school so everyone was home. (the kids that is, not the animals)
 Now it's time to watch the movie. The kids sat on the couch with their bowls of Del Monte fruit salad. Keep in mind that my kids range in age from 21 to 12 so it's hard to get a movie that they will all like and that I will like too.

This movie seemed to make us all happy. For me it had enough romance, laughs and Matt Damon. My youngest son thought it had a lot of funny parts in it. My oldest son, well, let's just say he said Scarlett Johansson isn't hard to look at. My daughter really liked it too. She doesn't often sit with us and watch whole movie but she did for this one.

Here is Matt Damon in a scene close to the beginning, but I don't want to ruin anything for you, so I won't include any more than this one. He was having an arguement with his son, hello! Who hasn't done that?  I really did like it though and my 12  year old has already watched it again so it made it worth it for me to buy it using the coupon.

A couple things you might want to know......
