The New York Times had an article about how Captain American beat Batman which I found fascinating. I did not go see Batman vs. Superman because the reviews were so bad. I only wanted to see the scene with Wonder Woman anyway, so I'll just wait for her own movie. Captain America, on the other hand had great reviews and had so many tie ins to other movies, I was glad I'd seen Winter's Soldier last night. It has gotten to the point with a lot of these super hero movies that you have to know a bunch of stuff going in in order to fully enjoy it. Civil War introduces it's audience to several characters that will have their own movies soon, Black Panther, Spider Man (re-boot) and of course another Avengers movie-- a two parter no less, not to mention another Guardians of Galaxy, Thor and Ant Man are coming as well! It is quite the money making machine and I am happy to add my few dollars for an afternoon of fun.
My morning started late, which was nice to finally sleep in. Balt and I went for a walk but it was hot and it made me think twice about sleeping in in the future. I had my Cuba ladies over for a meeting to prep for our trip and then I ran out to the pool to get my laps in. I did a quick grocery shop run before taking Erika and Monika out to a late lunch/early dinner before our movie fun. It was a great holiday!
