After a relaxing breakfast, Zinije catches up with an old college friend of hers, back when she competed some courses here in 2002. As the girls catch up over coffee, the kids and I take it easy and walk around the city of Stamford, it's another blue sky day and quite pleasant when in the sun. By the time I show the kids all our favourite spots and where we used to live, it's 11:30 and movie time. We promised the kids we will watch the movie Hop at the cinemas today, which has the same makers as the movie 'Despicable Me' which we all loved. After ordering the largest bucket of popcorn the kids have ever seen, we rush through the doors just in time for the movie to start. It was great, Lisiana sat through the whole movie quietly and did not ask to go to the toilet at all, a new record for her. The kids shared the popcorn and drink with out fighting and movie was very entertaining. After the movie, we head for some lunch and have a famous Philly Steak sandwich, we order a large portion and it's enough for our whole family to share. For rest of the day and evening we are catching up with more friends with kids at a place called Chuck e Cheeses, it is basically a massive time zone with a restaurant, indoor playgrounds and live entertainment for the kids. As we enter the venue, a staff member is stamping an invisible number on our hands, when we ask what it's for, they explain that it's to protect that the kids are not taken by an adult who does not have the same number as us. This place is really well designed for younger kids, my two love it and we don't leave until 8pm. By this time the kids are exhausted and it's time to go. Tomorrow we head for New York City, home of the penguins from Madagascar.
