Even though it was sweltering all weekend, we could seem to stay out of the heat. I'm determined to acclimate this year! The kids were begging to see X-Men on Saturday, so we decided to load up the car with snacks, beverages, and a friend and head over. When Warren added a football to the items piled up in my trunk, I thought it was cute. I was pretty sure that neither monkey had ever caught a football, but hey, no time like the present to learn!
It didn't take long for the kids to choose Ring Pops and pizza over the football.
Warren also made special blend popcorn and we had lots of cold beverages. A few squirts of bug spray and we were ready to go. The movie was actually pretty good. I'd say it was a very successful evening.
The kids started to get pretty sleepy, and I found out that the way the seats fold down in my car makes for perfect drive in viewing. A friend told us recently that he and his wife used to take two cars to the drive-in. (One for adults and one for kids.) I think we may try that next time.
By the time we got home, the monkeys were sound asleep.
