We *heart* the drive-in movies!

J got home a little after noon on Friday so we decided that we would go to the drive-in move theater. We love going, but since it's about an hour away it doesn't always work out (and with J being deployed every summer since we've been's hard to make happen).

Anyway. We packed up my car with the futon mattress and a ton of pillows and blankets, headed over to the mini NEX for snacks, got subway for dinner (it's a must when we go to the drive-in) and we were on our way. We like to get there about an hour early to set everything up, eat and play around a little bit.

Landon and Justin played soccer while I got the car all set up (we like to all lay in the back and much more fun and the futon mattress fits perfect in the back of my car). We ate just in time for the movies to start and J went to get us our popcorn and nachos (once again, a must for the movies).

We had a really great time and like always I was the only one awake when the last movie was over.

Here is what we saw!
"How to train your dragon"
It was so cute. We all loved it. I didn't quite know what to expect so I was surprised with how much we all enjoyed it. It was great for all ages.
"Bounty Hunter"
I really wanted to see this one. It looked so funny in the previews. I have to say it wasn't what I expected. I thought it was going to be a mass funny comedy and while it was funny it was more of a comedy/drama. Really good movie though. I love both of the main actors in it so that always helps. But all in all it was really good. J fell asleep about half way into it and was bummed that he missed it. lol.

I have never been to a drive-in, I would love to go... maybe when my husband gets back, that can be on our list!

That sounds like SO much fun! I wish we had a drive in around here. You always seem to be doing so much fun stuff. You are a lucky woman.

I remember going to the drive in with you guys we always had fun. Maybe when you visit we could go out to the one with the go-carts. I would love to see Landon in a go cart with u.

I'm so jealous that you have a drive-in near you! I went once as a kid and loved it! Glad you had a great time!
