Drive In

So, we went to a drive in movie last Friday night and the kids had a blast.  Who knew?  It was the first time for all of us.  The weather was awesome, particularly since it is typically the hotter than the third ring of Dante's hell during August in Texas.  Lucky for us, it was in the low 80s and perfect!  Aside from actually costing as much as going to a regular movie, the experience was so fun!  The kids could run around and play. The food was really pretty tasty. And they had adult beverages.  You know that's the key to my happiness!

We had my mom and my nephew, Rocky, visiting us last week, so they were there too!  It made for a very enjoyable evening.  The only hitch is that we didn't get done with the second movie until midnight!  That's late!  And since I'm practically geriatric these days, it felt even later than normal.  Add a couple of glasses of wine on top of that and I was ready to go home after the first movie, Planes.  Unfortunately, the kids were certain they could stay awake for the second movie, Smurfs 2, so we were in it for the long haul.  Of course, you can tell from all the raving I've already written, the lateness of the hour didn't dampen our spirits or our enjoyment. 

We will definitely be going again!

I forgot to mention that Evie wasn't with us.  She and her sweet friend Eva had spent the day getting back-to-school mani/pedis and having a lovely ladies lunch with yours truly.  They seemed to have a blast and then Eva's mom took them back to her house for a sleepover. 


What adorable girls.  They even wear matching dresses!
