We received some of the products mentioned in this post to host a family game night (and movie night) in honor of the Blu-ray release of Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day on Blu-ray 2/10. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Some days are just terrible. Horrible. No good. You get the picture.
But I’ve come to the conclusion that there aren’t too many bad days that a little family time can’t repair.
The older my kids get, the harder it is to carve out family time together that doesn’t take place in the minivan. We try to eat dinner together every night, but sometimes that’s all we get (and sometimes family dinner time is a tough one to manage, too).
So every once in a while we have a family night. We play games, we talk, we laugh. We almost always eat something sweet. Sometimes, get together with another family to make game night a little more interesting.
This past week, we took family game night to a whole new level, and turned a stressful week into something much more pleasant.
Dare I say…fun?!
And after we played games together, we grabbed our bowls of ice cream (in honor of Alexander’s fateful bowl of birthday ice cream) and headed downstairs to watch our brand new copy of Alexander and the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Because the best way to relax with the family is when you can laugh together.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day on Blu-ray
Available on Digital HD, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and On-Demand starting February 10th.
My family and I all loved seeing Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day in the theaters (I saw it 3 times!) and so we were thrilled to watch it again at home. Since my sister and brother in law hadn’t seen the movie yet, we actually had a second movie night…and they laughed so much (we all laughed!). We’re excited that it’s finally available on Blu-ray so that we can watch it at home. Just tonight, my 9-year-old was quoting from the movie. I think he’s seen it more than a few times already.
What we love about Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day:
We love that it’s a fun movie that the whole family can enjoy.
We love that it’s a little bit crazy but totally relatable at the same time.
We love laughing together. It’s therapeutic.
We love the message in the end – that “you gotta have the bad days so that you can enjoy the good,” and that family really is the most important thing. I love that they all chose to stand by each other in the end.
Have you seen Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? If you didn’t have a chance to see it in the theaters, take our lead and plan a fun family night…with games, ice cream, and a movie. You’ll love it!
