Last Saturday we decided to take all of the cousins on my husband's side of the family to the drive-in movie. His family had always went when he was little, but I had never been. It was our kids first time too!
It takes 3 large vehicles to haul all 11 grandkids, and 5 adults, so we arrived early to set up and get good parking spots.
We scooped all of the kiddos into the back of the truck for a photo op. In my delight, it was the perfect time of night for pictures. :)
After we took pictures, we gathered up the pizzas and drinks and fed all of the kids...
$5 pizzas that are hot and ready are ideal for drive in movie nights! Easy peasy.
I made myself jump in a picture so that the kids remember me being there. ;) I got to snuggle this guy most of the night! He is definately a Momma's boy and I love it!
While they ate, I put together all of the goodie bags that I labeled with each child's name and filled them with a variety of candy and popcorn that I had popped at home before we came. I seriously should have done another bag of popcorn since they ate it up so fast!
If I had more time during the day I would have had them ready before hand, but the whole day I was kind of running behind. We handed out the goodie bags and sat down in our lawn chairs because the movie was about to begin!
I LOVE all of the vintage ads they played. It was so fun, I think this will become a family tradition for our family too!
