"Despicable Me" at the Drive In

Summer's just not summer without a trip to the Dallas Motor Vu Drive In. Given it's only one of two (I think) drive-in's open in the state, I think it's mighty convenient that it happens to be about a mile from Michele's house.

This was our smoothest round yet. I figured out how to adjust all the settings in my vehicle to have the rear sound on without the overhead lights on. We piled on the blankets and pillows to give our rear ends plenty of padding. And, we kicked the boys outside with the lounge chairs.

Everyone but Mikayla stayed awake for it (go figure). We might have considered staying for "Inception" if the kids were all old enough to be into it, but as it was, we called it a night at a little past 11pm. Summer fun!

Growing up in AZ, I have lots of fond memories of the drive in!! When I was little, my parents would take us in our PJs. The first show was a cartoon...we would fall asleep and then they would watch the adult movie. In HS, I remember going to see a scary movie. My 3 best friends and I were sitting on the hood of my car....barely enough room...but by the end of the movie (it was so scary), there was a foot on either side!!!

I miss those days!
