first ever drive in movie date :)

What a fun/busy weekend we had!  Eric's little brother got married (welcome to the family Afton)!  I love weddings so much!  Without fail, they always bring back the feelings of excitement I had just before our wedding.  Call me crazy, but I always say I wish I could get married to Eric again :) 
When we got back into town Saturday evening I was feeling so restless.  Even though we'd been gone all weekend I felt like I needed to get out of the house.  Am I the only one who does that? :)  I'd heard about a drive in movie theater that was pretty close to us.  I've always wanted to go to one... so since I was already in a romantic/lovey-dovey mood I figured this was the perfect night to go!  (Haha I'm telling you...those weddings put me in a mood!:) 
We pulled our radio out of our 72 hour kit (I say that like we have one... we have bits and pieces for it.  Seriously, my goal for the dreaded winter is to put together our 72 hour kits.) and wound it up!  Everyone needs one of these radios, they have a solar panel to charge up when it's sunny, and you can wind it up at night!  We snuggled up in the bed of Eric's truck, surrounded by blankets and pillows, and enjoyed our first drive in together!  We will definitely have more drive in movie dates! :)

So romantic and so so sweet! I love drive-ins! Where else can you cuddle up with your honey in a car without a policeman tapping on your window and asking if there's any trouble?! Haha- love the pics... that tan you're rockin' is awesome- JUST the right amount! :) Congrats to your brother-in-law and his new wifey!

If there is something on my list it is going to a drive in movie, so sad we don't have those in Europe. It sounds like you had a great weekend, beautiful ending :) xo

How fun! It's been ages since we've gone to the drive in. We keep moving further and further away from it.

A DRIVE IN MOVIE! I grew up going to these, they seriously were my favorite as a child! I am going to start researching and see if there are any around where I live!!

Woah. I'm so confused. I've never been to a drive in movie. You drive in but sit in lawn chairs? And how do I get myself one of these radios?! I Love you guys! I wish we lived closer and we could double. No, I am not a creeper.

Jamie said...

Sounds fabulous!!!!! We have a drive in theatre in town that opens up every summer. It's so fun!

I am also in need of a 72 hour kit. It's overwhelming thinking of preparing one that will work for two adults plus 3 kids! But I know it's important. It's been on my mind lately to put one together. Let's blog about it! lol

Marian said...

Makes me want to go to a drive-in now:)

There used to be a drive-in theater near my house growing up. I went a few times, but always with my family. I remember seeing Men in Black and The American President. haha! I would LOVE to go to one on a date, though! :) Sounds fun and romantic! Glad you enjoyed it!

I've never been to a drive in theater! So jealous! And I'm glad to know everything is working out for you two. I know how it is to have bills piled up, no certainty about the future, no money, and nothing but your faith that God will pull you through. And He always does! I'll be praying for you guys toots. : )

ps. Your comment made my day. Thank you. Missed you too!

Ashley said...

Oh my gosh, I love drive-in movies! Now I'm going to look up and see if there are any near us. (: What a fun date idea.
