Movies in the park are one of my favorite things about summer. I love bringing treats and settling down on blankets in the park to enjoy a movie with all of my friends and family. I used to go to movie in the park every week before we got married. It's harder to do now that we have kids, and even harder to justify paying a babysitter to stay with them while they're sleeping at home and we're out on a free date. I can't wait for the days when our kids are older and we can keep them up late for movies in the park without the consequences that we'd have doing that now when they are toddlers. Until then, I'm hoping we can catch one or two of these this summer and plan on enjoying outdoor movies in our own backyard.
