Drive-Ins



Saturday night was the 1st time that Conrad had ever been to a drive - in. We saw Sorcerer's Apprentice and Toy Story 3. He was a trooper. He stayed up all the way through 2 movies. And crashed hard immediately after. We told him to put his shoes back on so when we arrived home he would not have to bother with them. When we arrived home, he had fallen asleep with a shoe in his hand.

It is that quintessential idea of going back to relive your childhood. All of the wonder of the night, the awesome sight of a 40 foot screen, having way too much soda and getting away with staying up as late as you possibly can. Being goofy and tossing popcorn.

You want to go back to the family times. The twilight of youth and the safe net of your family or friends.

We had that glimpse of yesteryear, and the moment closest to perfection you can get in a summers night.
