The Drive-Inn

We are huge fans of the drive-inn. We get to go in our comfies, eat a picnic in our car, people watch, watch a movie under the stars, snuggled under blankets. It is pretty much perfect.

This year we introduced Lucy to one of our favorite summer past times. And as you can see from the pictures, staying still was not one of her strong points. So, Scott and I switched off playing referee. One of us stayed in the back seat of the jeep, physically blocking her from leaving, while the other watched on the bean bag. This system actually worked pretty well, and we were able to make it through Toy Story 3. Which, by the way, was a pretty awesome movie. I even got a little teary.

So here's to chocolate, squirmy babies, Victorian Lemonade's, cartoons, Jeeps, husbands, movies, slippers, and many, many, many more summer nights spent together as a family.

Love the drive in! We only went once this year, but we had a blast. Glad you got to go. I'm sad we didn't do tin foil dinners in the mountains this year though! :( Next year for sure, and we need to get together with you guys soon. Maybe hot chocolate and ice skating around Christmas?
