Movie in the park

We met up with some new friends last night for a movie in the park a few miles from our house. The movie showing was "The Proposal", which we have seen several times, but still love. We ate dinner at the house since the movie wasn't until 8:30, but packed a cooler with dessert and a few drinks :) We had such a fun time with good friends, laying on our blanket watching the movie. Now that we are experienced in this, we know a few things to remember for next time:

-Bring a blanket AND chairs in case people with chairs sit in front of you

-Get there early and eat a picnic dinner during the wait to reserve a good spot!

-Bring the rolly cooler so that we can load it up and drag it

-Wear comfy shoes as once you are in the park, you still have quite a ways to walk!

-Bring a citronella candle to keep away the bugs, and for light!

As you can tell, we weren't as prepared as we thought we were! Not only that, but I forgot the camera, and of course wanted a picture! In the dark (no lights in the gardens other than candles people brought), we attempted to take a few pictures on my blackberry. It certainly was NOT successful! After three tries, we gave up. However, I will still share the horrible pictures so you can see how bad it was (and no, we weren't holding the camera out and trying to take our own picture!)


  1. I like this last picture best. ;0)

  2. Haha, I love all of them! They make me laugh! :)
