The Wait for Harry Potter Has Ended

Well the wait for Harry Potter book 7 and seeing the 5th movie has finally ended. Last night we all went to the local Barnes and Noble bookstore to partake in the Harry Potter activities while awaiting the arrival of the much anticipated book at 12:01 a.m. We had our fortunes read by Jenny Weasley, Kayla a photo with Harry Potter, we received glow in the dark Harry Potter glasses, and we had scars painted on our faces (except Kayla had a phoenix). The boys and I didn't stay until midnight (we're not that crazy) but Phil and Kayla waited out the time (and luckily Kayla saw some of her friends) to purchase two copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Phil and I are already on page 110 and we've already received shocking news. Don't worry I won't tell.

Then today (in two waves) we saw Harry Potter - The Order of the Phoenix on IMAX 3D. We thoroughly enjoyed it. However, for you true Harry Potter fans it is much much shorter than the the book (as book 5 was the longest of the 7 book series) but it was fast moving. If you enjoy Harry Potter I highly recommend seeing it at the IMAX in 3D. The movie does catch most of the highlights but does remove the day to day antics and some background. Kayla said this was her favorite movie so far. Now it just needs to come out on DVD. ;)
