Jon and I took the kids to an advance screening of the new movie, Mars Needs Moms on Saturday in downtown Philadelphia.

It was kind of neat as they held it in an old theater at the Franklin Institute, our local science and technology museum.

There were some tear-jerky scenes in which you weren’t sure what was going to happen to the Mom. Cole was so worried about her fate that he ended up spending the entire second half of the movie on my lap clinging to me – you can see in the photo where he wouldn’t let go after the movie too!

Mars Needs Moms features the voices of Seth Green and Joan Cusack and opens in theaters across the country on March 11, 2011.

So after the movie, we checked out some of the neat displays at the Franklin Institute afterwords:

We headed into the city for lunch where we had a great lunch at the Continental Midtown. ¬†Isn’t this a cute photo of my three guys?:
