Friday Favourites


Is anyone else a Harry Potter fan out there?  I was never that into it, I did not read the books and only saw the movies at Dave's urging, but now that E is reading the books and watching the movies, and even Q is getting in on the action as we read to him, I'm a bit more interested than I once was.  This week we went to see the production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child here in Toronto.  For someone who isn't a huge HP fan and doesn't like the theatre, I actually enjoyed the show and would recommend going to see it.  The kids were enthralled and even Q stayed awake for the entire 3+ hours!! (Yes, it's long.)  E was Harry Potter for Halloween one year so he wore his costume, complete with new Hedwig that Dave brought from Universal last week, and Q work his Quidditch jersey that Dave also picked up from Universal.  It was great fun!

Invitation to Hogwarts cookie. E also got some Butter Beer.  

This story takes place after the books, which means there are spoilers for those who haven't finished the books, like E, who is on book 5, but most of the focus was on what happened in the Goblet of Fire, which he had read.  I'm sure there are a few things that went over E's head in terms of who married whom, so really it's not a big deal.  

Linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. Oh that sounds so fun! My younger two boys and I are HUGE Harry Potter fans. I actually remember waiting for the books to come out (not that I EVER waited in line for them but I do remember finishing one book and thinking I couldn't wait to read the next one).

  2. Looks like you all had an amazing time. I have never read a single Harry Potter book or watched any of the movies. I think we are all into Lord Of The Rings instead during that time. My oldest son recently watched the movies because he felt that he had missed something in his childhood. He said that they were ok and I was forgiven for not taking him to see the movies when he was a kid hahaha!

  3. This looks like such a fun experience. I haven't read any of the books, but my mom has read them all, and gave some to Hayden. He's read the first four, I think.

  4. This is so dang cute. These are some of the sweet memories that your boys are going to remember forever! I love that they dressed up to go!! Lauren, not Anonymous.
