Family Movie Night.

In keeping with the family traditions over here, we are not ones who generally do a movie night.

Neither Shane nor I are really huge movie people (I know, I know ...) but there are certainly some classics that I'd love for the kiddos to see and a Friday night is always the perfect time for this fun family tradition.

Where you used to have the process of getting in the car and going to Blockbuster to physically pick out whatever movie was left in-stock, our kids now have every movie ever made literally at their fingertips. 

I love popping up some popcorn and letting them pick out a little movie-sized pack of candy for a few snacks and all piling onto the couch together in our PJs for a little fun time together. With our age ranges (5, 3 + 1) sometimes the theatre can be a little challenging but they're just getting to the age now where I think it's about to get really, really good.

I also love the idea of bringing movie night outside for these summer months and figuring out a good projector system to rig up in the front yard, invite the neighbors over and all bring out our blankets. There is just something about seeing a movie outside "drive-in style" that feels so special and classic to me.
