With the three day weekend coming up I decided I wanted to just relax, read and binge anything I could think of. I hadn't watched the second of the Incredibles movies and so I decided when I needed a break from reading this was a good way to do so.  

This was a fantastic movie that both adults and children could love. There were so many great lessons that were shared from learning to have discernment about people, another is to know that just because someone can be a hero doesn't mean you can't take steps to help mitigate the issues that require their help.  

In this one, we are in a world were the supers are having to hide underground, they are no longer supported by the government, and also popular opinion has turned the tide against them and they are considered illegal.  An opportunity to share with the world why and how supers help to save them is presented and ElastiGirl needs to leave her family behind. Her husband Mr. Incredible (the strongman) is left to handle the three children on his own and he's not used to corraling the kids, he's also kind of resentful that his wife is the one out there saving the day.  I loved how he had to learn that all the tasks of everyday life aren't glamorous but they too can be rewarding. He also had to learn about leaning on those you love for help.

I loved the kids in the movie, it was awesome to see the kids grow and of course, Jack Jack was hilarious.  Of course, there are other gems within the story about learning to accept yourself and fighting for a place for your children to be able to have choices about who they are. This movie wouldn't be a great one without Edna Mode and her commentary. I love her. "No Capes!!" 

An awesome story and I highly recommend.  
Bring popcorn and enjoy my loves,
