With the summer months fast approaching, I'm hard at work planning fun stuff for us to do as a family, both at home and away. We aren't making extravagant plans this year. We have 2 fun weekend road-trip getaways on our agenda, during the first few weeks of June. Then, the rest of the summer will be spent fairly close to home. I will be too far along in my pregnancy to chance being far away however, we still plan on making it a fun and memorable summer for the kids.
I so wish that drive-in movie theaters were still existent in our area. Because really, what says summer, more than a night at the drive-in? They're quintessential to the season, in my opinion!
After searching and failing to find an outdoor theater within driving distance, I hatched a new plan to host family movie nights each week in our own backyard!
I am literally bursting at the seems with excitement to get everything set up in our backyard over the next few weeks, and to host our first outdoor family movie night with the kids!
