The Drive-In Movie

Last night we took the girls to their first Drive-In Movie (it was my first too). First let me say, we are HOOKED! It was SO much fun. Marty and I couldn't wipe the smiles off of our faces all night long just watching the girls experience this. A few things about the evening, then I'll get to some pictures:

We got there at 6:30, right when the gates opened, so we could get a great spot and we did! We were in the second row right in the middle. The girls ran around and played on the field in front of the screen and took turns pushing each other on the swings. We waited until the movie was about to begin and got our food. Our dinner menu for the evening included the following:
* Popcorn
* Twizzlers
* M&M's
* Sour Gummy Worms
* Nachos
* Cotton Candy
* Cokes
* Cherry Slushees

Needless to say the girls were in "Hog Heaven" quite literally! The movie started right when the sun went down. We saw Indiana Jones and it was a great movie to see on the gigantic screen (40' x 80' to be exact). It was a perfectly clear night, so we literally watched a movie out under the stars. It was magical. We WILL be going back and probably quite frequently. Thank you to those who blogged about this place, so we could find out about it. We are officially addicted!
