Went with the kids to the second Hobbit movie today. I guess it was pretty exciting. It contained lots of that inconceivable action that Lord of the Rings had and much less of the boring landscapes and mind-numbing music that the first Hobbit movie had. I also respected the approach that no context was given to set up the film for those who have not seen the first movie. Coming into this one cold would be completely confusing. William finally got to see Teagan, who has been here for the past couple of days but had a very full social calender. William's cousins and Emma were also at the film but they had commitments afterwards so this will be the extent of big group events for them this holiday. At least these three (above) were able to spend the rest of the evening together and make a movie of their own.
