The Drive-In and An Evening at the Beach


This past weekend, with the temperatures high and the weather beautiful, it couldn't have been more apparent that summer is almost with us.

So we made the most of the weekend and enjoyed some firsts of the season.


On Friday we decided to go to the drive in with the kids. We don't do it often, but they love getting cozy in the car and watching a movie on the giant outdoor screens. And unlike the theatre, they're both still free admission.

While we were at the market on Friday morning, Hudson and I picked up two snacks to bring with us - freshly made mini donuts and salty-sweet kettle corn. I had seen the idea for snack boxes on Pinterest, so I used what I had and came up with something easy for them to hold. They had hot cocoa (half a cup to minimize spilling), a few donuts and a small little bag of popcorn.



The rear-facing seats in the hatch were perfect for the boys and they snuggled up with lots of pillows and blankets.


Then, on Saturday night, after a very warm day, we ventured out to our nearby beach. It wasn't officially open yet, but the water was beautiful! We had to hop through a few meters of green before the water cleared, but it was still refreshing.


I forgot just how lovely the beach is. The boys are so happy, running it's length and bouncing around in the water, and you can just see Ryan's body relax after a long day at work. It's wonderful.

Looking forward to many adventures this summer!
