You Had Me at "Drive-In"

Monday, November 8, 2010

Just when I thought my hubs couldn't get any better he took the day off from work last week and kept the boys so that I could get some sewing done. But he didn't stop there. The next night he surprised me with my most favorite date night of all time!  We went to a drive-in movie! I didn't even know they still had those things. Thankfully... they do! And this one comes with Electric Lady Land Mini Golf too! Say what?  Is this heaven? Pretty stinkin' close!

drive on up, get your tickets and drive on in - love it
once parked, we popped the hatch, put the seats back and set up our "nest"
the snacks
our view before the movie began
our pathetic, but funny, attempt at a pic
my favorite shot from the night because it looks like little foxes dancing in the dark

And if all of that isn't reason enough to make this your next date night - they have the police car from the Dukes of Hazzard there! Seriously, this was one of the best dates EVER! And while we've been told (and believe) you can't do movies for dates, this works because it takes a while to get there. We had great conversations on the way there and back. Win. Win. Win.

What's the best date you've ever had? xo
