Friday Night at the Park and Drive-In Fun
In fact the kids and parents loved the outdoor movie theater so much, we are going to do it again sometime in the fall. We really feel blessed that we have such good neighbors who also like to entertain their kids as much as we do; not to mention that we have a great park area in which to share fun activities.
Saturday was a rainy day for the most part, so Chris and I did some cleaning out and organizing that needed to be done in his upstairs office and storage areas. After the morning/afternoon rain showers, we decided to try the drive-in movie that is only about 5-6 minutes away. It has been open for a few years now, but it is just one of things we forget about. The kids had a blast blowing bubbles, eating popcorn and snacks, and traveling up the big hill to investigate the big movie screen. At dark, we got our our lawn chairs and watched Despicable Me for the second time this summer. Besides Toy Story 3, this has been another favorite of the Whaleys this movie season. I love the fact that adoption is one of the plots of the movie...those little girls are adorable! And the kids love the minions. Of course this will have to be a DVD purchase when it comes out later.
Well, I had better end for now, and start getting some things done this evening. Today was my second in service day, and school starts on Monday for J.J. This is also tax-free weekend in TN, so you know that we will be getting our act together and purchasing school supplies and new sneakers.
Here's to a great weekend!
