Drive-in Movie!

On Saturday night Chris and I had the unique opportunity to go to a drive-in movie theater. We were pretty excited considering neither of us had ever been to one before. We pulled in, they told us which radio station to turn to, and we found a pretty good spot to park our car. There were some serious drive-in-movie-goers who brought couches and mattresses to put in the back of their car or truck, and some people set up camping chairs and sat outside their vehicle. It was too cold for me to do that! There was a concession area and Chris got a milkshake and I got something to drink and a candy bar. We saw "G.I. Joe" and it was really nice to recline our seats back a little and have control of the volume! One of the only draw backs was that a few people arrived late and their headlights shone right into our mirrors. Other than that we had a good time. I still like the theater best, but at least now Chris and I can say that we've experienced the excitement of a drive-in movie!

Here's a little story for you. A year or two ago we went to the drive in. Greg had me park next to the entire Hell's Angel gang. I was scared. A few minutes later some guy behind us told us we had to move. (I just wanted to go home!) Every Hell's Angel guy stood up and started yelling at him saying we didn't have to move. It was a borderline brawl. After that, instead of making out with me in the back of the van, Greg sat in his lawn chair amongst the Hell's Angels sharing his Fiddle Faddle.

Oh yeah. Good times.

Oh, those were the days. Sometimes I wish life could slow down a little and go back.

Drive Ins are a must do but not really that great of a place to watch a movie. Glad you got to experience it!! Dan and I's first kiss was at the drive in...good memories!

Just so you all know, Chris wanted me to jump out of the car and run away as he yelled after me "Sandy, Sandy! Don't leave me at the drive-in!"!

i've been to a drive ins twice and both times it was very fun! (prob cuz i was in high school dating john and i thought it was super romantic) but with a kid or even now, don't know if it would be worth it.
