Backyard Movie Night


Almost every summer we have a backyard movie night. The kids invite over all their friends, we set up the projector and play a movie on the fence. The backyard is full of food, blankets, hot chocolate and FRIENDS! This year we decided to split it up and have a movie night for the older two kids and their friends, and then a movie night for the younger kids with their friends (who will be quick to tell you that we never did. It got so cold and rainy!)

Megan, wondering if we would miss the Swedish fish. Friends brought treats too, so by the time we got started this table was full!

Ashlyn had me take a picture of the popcorn. We were popping this stuff for a solid hour! It takes a lot of popcorn to fill a Rubbermaid tote!

Matt played Studio C episodes while he was setting up, and Megan kept trying to figure out how he got a movie to play on the fence!

It was really quite dark, my camera makes it look like we started early! The younger kid piled on blankets…DSC_0148 small

The hot chocolate was the hit of the night. Just about everything on the table was gone by the end of the movie! We had a great time, and we owe the younger kids big time! Next summer we’ll plan theirs backyard movie night first 🙂
