Mother/Mother-in-law night out

Last night I went out with my daughter-in-law and her mother. It was my daughter-in-law's  idea for us to have a night out. We both wanted to see We Bought A Zoo which was a great choice that I highly recommend. The show is perfect for the family and it is so touching, enjoyable,funny and true to life as its a true story and those are always the best ones. That thought made me think of the Quran and how the stories of the prophets are always the most compelling. After watching the show I went on a rant about how there is no nature where I live and comparing it to the location where the zoo was and the environment it is set in, with mountains and trees. I don't care for zoos or birds in cages as I think no animal should live out the only life they have in prison. Some zoos are more humane than others though. The other thing I like about this show is how they became involved in something bigger than them. It reminded me of Itto's Living Faith blog and how they started a school. I think its important to be involved in something outside ourselves that involves selflessness and fulfills our jobs as Vice-regents of this world. This is the best movie I've seen in a really long time. Go out and see it!
