Night at the Drive-In!

Last night Jason & I decided we wanted to take the kids to see Cars 2 at the drive-in movies!
We realized that this could either be a recipe for disaster or an ultimate success -- however, we felt our odds were better with a drive-in than with a regular movie theater (and cheaper too since both kids were free at the drive-in!).

We tried to pump them up by setting up the pillows/blankets in the back of the car before we left, and changing them into their PJs at home... once we were in PJs and the snacks were packed Connor was raring to go!!!!

Cheezy PJ smile!
Let's Go to the Movies!

When it was finally time to go, we piled in the car and headed to the drive-in. Paige was excited, but I'm not sure she knew why... However, Connor kept screaming "woooo!!! movies!" "light Maheeen (Lightening McQueen) and "vroom vroom vrooom" the whole ride.

We finally arrived - and started setting up for the big event!

And, we needed snacks! (we had brought some snacks from home and stopped at the store to try and prevent having to pay the jacked up movie prices!)

Mmmm Popcorn!

And, finally, the movie can begin!

Yes, they both stayed awake for the whole movie! There were times I'd glance back at Connor and he was truly mesmerized by the big screen and the movie experience! Overall, it was a wonderful family event... and I'm so glad we did it!
