Today is the day, and there couldn't be more meetings and deadlines at work. Why does that always happen? Of all days...I wish this would be a slow one where everything is ready and under control. However, quarter end info is still not finalized, and there were many errors we found way too late that we now have to wade through. Usually I would blame it on my procrastination, but that is honestly not the case this time. What a fun day ...NOT!
After 6 o'clock hit though, look out! I was out of there to meet Danny for our birthday celebration. We planned to go to Newton to the Valle Drive - In. http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/iatvall
First, we went to A&W and bought some dinner.
Danny filled the back of his pickup with an air mattress, pillows, and lots of blankets. We bought snacks, toured around taking photos and chatting with the owner, then settled in for the double feature.
All I can say is AWESOME!!! I talked to Dad at one point in the evening and asked why he never told me about Drive-ins before. I was just captivated by the whole experience. The sound was great, the picture was perfect, lounging under the stars on a beautiful summer night was amazing. Having snacks and movie theater popcorn nearby was just a bonus!!!
We saw the Dark Knight and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The Dark Knight was unbelievable. Heath Ledger's performance made us sad that he is gone...he gave such a wonderful performance. Journey to the Center of the Earth was really pretty fluffy and silly, but we watched it nonetheless.
If you have never been to a Drive In, GO!!!! I enjoyed the whole experience immensely.
