A Night At The Drive-In

We were cooped up at home all last week and by Saturday, I was desperate to get out of the house. The only problem was that I was having a lot of trouble breathing and even walking was hard on my lungs. I needed fresh air, but I also needed to just sit.

So just for fun, I decided to look up drive-in theatres to see if there were any nearby. And there was! It turns out that Tivoli Drive-In is just a 25 minute drive from where we live, they had a good kid's movie playing this past weekend (A Bug's Life), and best of all, they have free admission until the end of December.

It was the perfect combination for us. And though we were still coughing, I was determined not to let this opportunity pass us by.

The night air was beautiful - just the right temperature for us to have the windows rolled down without having to worry about bugs bothering us.

This time around, I made some quesadillas and cut up some fresh strawberries and watermelon for us to eat in the car. If we go again on a warmer night, we might grab a nice ice cream treat from the cafe!

I wish I could have taken pictures to capture the boys' reactions.

Caleb was so fascinated by the pictures moving on the huge screen. He was cheering as he watched for the first little while. Caleb also loved standing half out the window, banging on the door and calling out to our neighbours.

Nathan sat in Andrew's lap and you could see how happy he was to be sitting in his daddy's lap watching a movie. His eyes were bright and his little laughs and giggles could melt your heart. I'm so glad he enjoyed the movie.

It was a magical night for me.

I wanted our first drive-in experience to be a good one, and I'd say it definitely was.


  1. how fun! our local drive-in closed about two years ago, so sad. Glad you got to enjoy it!
