Having a house full of girls can be fun & crazy!  There are baby dolls, dress up clothes, princesses, hair bows, nail polish & make up.  But did you know........

The Houston weather has been downright kooky lately with the sun shining one minute & then crazy thunder/lightning/rainstorms the next.  Taking advantage of the sunshine, we decided to head to Walmart, grab some essentials, rent a movie & hunker down for the weather we knew was coming.

Izzy & Maggie both got superhero capes at our school carnival recently, so they've been in superhero mode.  THAT, paired with the upcoming May 1st release of the new MARVEL's TheAvengers: Age of Ultron, we decided to surprise the girls by letting them each pick out an Avengers toy at Walmart.  Don’t you just love superheroes?  I love that they make my girls feel like they can conquer anything…that they can take out the bad guys…and the good guys get to win. J  

They took their time perusing the Avengers section, but finally settled on Captain America all the way!  With their toys in the buggy, we ventured off to find some snacks.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but lots of Avenger snacks & now, where’s the beer?  HA, but seriously, where is it?  ;-)

We scooped those up & then got the needed ingredients for homemade pizzas!  Izzy had been begging me to make homemade pizzas using a silicon baking cup set we have.  Since the girls were going to be dressing up like Captain America, we decided on Captain America Shield Pizza Cups!  (recipe below)  How awesome was this movie party going to be?!?! 

Once we were home, we opened up our new toys.  Even daddy got into the fun!

After playing a while, we made our Captain America Shield Pizza Cups, filled our snack bowls with a mix-up of Doritos, fruit snacks & Cheez-Its and started the matinee of The Avengers movie we had rented.

Maggie & Izzy made the house completely dark…movie theater style…closing all the shades & turning off the lights.  They were so enthralled in the movie & they LOVED when the superheroes finally made their appearance!  Izzy's favorite was Iron Man & Maggie was really into seeing The Hulk but really liked Captain America.

Midway through the movie, I surprised them with some Thor Hammers!  Pretzels & marshmallows...yeah, needless to say, they ate them in a matter of minutes!

The girls are officially ready for the May 1st release of MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age ofUltron.  Do your girls like Superheroes too?  What do you & your family do to get excited about the release of a movie sequel?

  1. How FUN! My eldest son and I did a progressive marathon of all the movies over the course of the last month. We had a wonderful time, but we aren't as awesome as you guys with the themed snacks! You, I'm convinced, are super mom! #client
