Date Night at the Drive In

Last night, we had a family date night at the drive in. We took Napoleon with us to see a double feature of Crazy, Stupid Love and The Change-Up at the Cascade Drive In. The dog really enjoyed the drive in for some reason. Maybe it was all the new smells, or maybe the promise of delicious popcorn. It's the happiest we've ever seen him. He wore himself out by the beginning of the second movie and slept in his little bed in the back seat.

It was a great time. It was $9 per person for the double feature and they offered popcorn for $1 as well as coupons online for other $1 deals. This week, it was pretzels, but they weren't very good. We saw people with elaborate set ups that included lawn chairs, baggo games and full picnic set ups. Next time, I'll be bringing my own little set up for this shin dig so that we can enjoy the whole thing even more.
As for the movies, they were better than I expected. Steve Carell was great in Crazy, Stupid Love and there was a twist that I didn't anticipate. The Change-Up had its funny moments and was pretty enjoyable. The only downer is that we didn't get home until almost 1 a.m. because the movies can't start until it's dark enough.

Either way, we're going back again!
