Friday Night Lights...

Friday night clouds- and the sun setting..

We were headed towards Scottsdale for a Drive-in Double Feature...
Mark noticed how ORANGE the sky was..
We loaded up the lawn chairs...
Some sandwiches,
Caramel popcorn,
Buttered popcorn,

Sonic drinks...
A mom, a dad...


and a coupla cute girls...
(the boy was gone with the Scouts to a cabin..)

Oh, and a pig and a monkey came too..
The weather was beautiful - even took some blankets..
it tried to rain, but we only got a few sprinkles.
Although there is no longer playground equipment up near the screen,
the drive in can be a fun place...
No more poles with speakers on them to hang on your car window..
Bring a radio and tune it in (my Zune was awesome !)..
Hope that the kids nearby aren't too rowdy.
Maybe the girls will fall asleep in the car -
oh, and maybe I will too.
If double headers started at 6ish, maybe I'd see more of the
second movie!

My parents took my little sisters to the drive-ins last week too. I was tempted to go and take our kids, but man those movies are so late! Hope you guys enjoyed it though...the weather has been really great!

I haven't been to the drive-in since we were first married and we put our couch in the back of the truck. Fun times!

Looks like a lot of fun. I've wanted to do that this summer. I hear Tuesday nights are the bargain nights.

Very nice! The simple things mean a lot, don't they?
