I’ve Got the Beach in Me

This past weekend, my family and I saw Toy Story 3.  What a great movie!  I laughed.  I cried, but my poor little sensitive soul Emmalynn wailed worse than she did we saw Where the Wild Things Are.  After the movie, Emmalynn said in a sad sniffle voice, “I love all my toys, Mommy.”  And when we returned home last night, both girls gave their favorite toys a little cuddle.


In the movie, Buzz Lightyear is reset to the factory default demo setting.  The toys try to restore Buzz back to his old self again, but accidentally set him to Spanish mode which leaves Buzz with some interesting new features and moves.




I’ve never been a Randy Newman fan, but I love the Gypsy Kings’s version of You Got a Friend in Me.  After hearing their version in the movie yesterday, I dusted off out my Gypsy Kings CD.






On another note, we’re heading to the beach this week.  I’ve had the sand and surf on my mind for weeks now and I can’t wait to soak it all up.  Of course, any Bob Marley or Jimmy Buffet song will put me in a beachy keen kind of mood.




But lately, Nick Drake’s From the Morning has been featured in an AT&T commercial which has been making me long for lazy days at the beach even more.




We can’t get to the beach soon enough.

    I’m so jealous! It has been FOREVER since I’ve been to the ocean & it will probably be quite a long while before we get a chance.

    Love all your song choices! Have a GREAT time at the beach!

    I just got home from an extended weekend at the beach. It was absolutely fabulous. We really want to see Toy Story 3 but I’m not sure my 2 year old is ready to sit in a theater for the entire movie (though he can do it here at home). Have fun at the beach!

    Happy Music Monday!
