Drive-in Movie Night

Inspired by my sister-in-law, Ashley's blog post, our kids went to the "Drive-in" for Friday Night Movie Night last weekend, at home.  It all started with some crazy kids around 4:00pm on Friday and I tried to think of something we could do outside in the backyard. Painting cardboard boxes to look like cars must have come as inspiration.

It started raining a bit (even thundering for a min or two!!!! I love thunder) so we grabbed our "cars" and paint and moved to the garage.

Dinner was homemade whole wheat yogi rolls (not light and fluffy but still OK) with sandwich fixings, bananas, and popcorn.  We watched some Tin Tin cartoons Chris got for Christmas. It was pretty fun and the kids looked so cute stuffed in their "cars." I wonder how many Friday Night Movie Nights they'll last through.

We're so excited for soccer tomorrow!

You all did a great job on those cars! What a brilliant idea. I love the picture of them all squashed into their cars.
