Tonight the older two and I went to a Drive-in! I have not been to one in YEARS and the kids have never been. I used to go with friends in high school to one in my hometown, and then after college with another group of friends a ways away from us. We'd go to these caves during the day, then go to the drive-in and play cards until the movie started. So much fun! Lots of great memories!
I saw that there was one close to here so decided that was something we needed to do. They have SIX SCREENS!!! That is so crazy to me! The only movie that was appropriate was Night at the Museum, and it was a fun night! (Except that at one point Braeden spilled his Crystal Light all over his WHITE Gymboree tshirt - hope it comes out!) :)
I loved watching Olivia tonight. A couple boys and their dad were playing four square near us. A little girl went up and asked to play and I watched how wonderful that dad was and how he incorporated her into the game. Shortly Olivia asked what they were playing and I explained it to her. She asked if she could go play and I encouraged her to, she had so much fun! Then some girls near us started jump roping and I called Olivia over and asked if she wanted to do that and she did, she had SO MUCH fun! :) It was great to see, she can be very shy and doesn't always understand appropriate ways to relate to other kids. She did great, and Braeden and I hung out on our blanket for a while. :)
