We went to the Drive-In last week. It was our girls first time going. I hadn’t been in about 7 years. Staying up that late was a struggle, but the girls loved it. We went and saw Incredibles 2 and Hotel Transylvania 3.
The girls did so well! For the first movie, we sat in the back of the van, which was pretty squished with the four of us. But the girls thought it was fun to sit in the back of the van. We had a huge comforter folded to pad the bottom and a bunch of pillows to lean on.
We ended up only taking one blanket because it was so hot. We also brought these water bottles that have a mist thing on it. We used them a lot. For the second movie, which started at almost 11, we turned the van around and put the girls in their car seats with the blanket on them. We reclined the front seats and took out the headrest so they could still see. It wasn’t long before they were fast asleep.
We ended up not making it home until 1 AM, but it was worth it for the excitement the girls had. They were super cranky the next day but nothing a nap couldn’t fix.
All in all, I’m glad we went, and I can’t wait to go next summer.
