Father’s day this year will long be remembered by our boys, and not just because they got to spoil their daddy with Guinness, Swizzels Drumstick lollipops, Daddy Pig pyjamas and Star Wars socks – but because at 5a.m., they were up, in the car and on their way to catch the tube in Richmond to have breakfast with Kung Fu Panda!
We arrived rather chirpily and trotted across the bridge after waving at Big Ben [which Jensen informed me very loudly is NOT THE CLOCK, MOMMY!] to make it to Shrek’s Adventure in time to be the first in line. We gave in our names and headed down to a room full of fun, for a breakfast of hot coffee and orange juice, croissants and bananas.
Excuse the photography – it was very, very dark – and I don’t use a flash.
After meeting Po, we were lucky enough to go on Shrek’s Adventure, which was a-mazing, and kept all three boys completely captivated. We met every character, including Jensen’s favourite Pinocchio, and then we got into a spot of bother, but it was all okay in the end.
Soon it was movie time after meeting the Ogreous [I’m sure that must be a word] one for a hug – and we headed to a huge beanbag filled room for the screening! If you’re a fan of Po then we won’t ruin it for you – and if you aren’t, then you should be! It’s a real family movie – and there are teeny pandas in this one, and the best villains ever.
Settling down to watch the movie… Who will stay awake? Clue – the only one who did has his hand up.
DreamWorks Animation’s KUNG FU PANDA 3 is out on Digital HD on 4th July and on Blu-ray and DVD on 11th July.
