Pull up a tailgate

This past Saturday, we joined our friends, Pam and Mitch, for a little late night movie action - outdoor style. We drove to the Moonlite Drive-In located in a suburb of Nashville to watch two movies for less than the price of one.

While waiting for the movie to begin, families were playing on the playground or throwing frisbees and footballs in the yard under the screen. We were starving, so we made a bee-line to the concession stand and went crazy. We popped our tailgate, munched our delicious junk food and anxiously anticipated "dusk."

Here's Pam and Mitch, waiting for the sun to go down.

And here is Pam and Mitch's hood, overflowing with delightful calories. Seriously, does it get any better than concession food?

Finally, around 9:00, they thought it was dark enough to begin the first movie. We set up our camping chairs at the end of our trucks and laughed together through Grownups. Since it was so late, Pam and Mitch left during the intermission. Brad and I used the time between movies to go get more junk food. :)

When we returned, we dangled our legs off the tailgate as we enjoyed our nachos and funnel cake. Once Karate Kid began, we lounged back on pillows and blankets in the bed of the Tahoe and watched a young Will Smith Jaden Smith learn to kick some major booty.

We finally called it a night around 1:45 in the morning. Even though we had church to wake up for bright and early, the late night festivities were definitely worth the memories. We really liked both movies, enjoyed time with friends, and loved the drive-in experience.

Have you ever been to a Drive-In movie theater before? I totally recommend that you put it on your Summer To Do List.
