the girls had so much fun at the drive in last year
that we thought it would be a fun way
to celebrate canada day!
we tried to keep it a secret from them all day
but when they saw the candy that i was packing
they kept asking me
"momma what's all that candy for?!?!"
(they aren't really allowed to eat candy)
and i replied with a "oh, nothing..."
and when they saw me bringing out pillows and blankets
from the linen closet
they asked "mommy, why are you bringing out all those blankets? we don't
need them it's hot...."
and i replied with "oh, no reason.."
and when i asked them to put socks on
"mom, why do we have to wear socks with our pajamas?"
(they don't like wearing socks in the house)
i said, " just because..."
and when zoe's godmother arrived with
her own pillows and blankets
"why is ninang christine here..?"
and then finally because i am super bad at keeping secrets and because i was
kind of tired of answering their questions
we told them
we are going to the drive-in!
which resulted in this happy dance
it was a perfect summer evening for the drive in
not to mention that the second movie
was transformers 3, which made my hubs super happy
i think the girls were more excited about being in the trunk of the van
than watching kung fu panda 2
not to mention being out in public in their jammies
we got there pretty early to get a good spot
but while we waited for the sun to set
we munched on popcorn, candy, chips
strawberries, watermelon and chocolate chip muffins!
zoe has been into "jumping poses" lately
so she wanted me to take a picture of her jumping in front of the screen
but it didn't really turn out
so she did her tried and true "peace sign" pose
it was a perfect way to spend our country's birthday
with family, lots of snacks
and great movies!
i think it might just become a canada day tradition!
