Summer Bucket List – Movie in the Park

Posted by: Maggie

One of the (very few) good things about living in our very conservative suburb is that there are a lot of kid friendly activities year round and many of them are free. Every summer various orgs put on movies in some of the many parks. This year we were lucky enough to catch one of Eleanor’s favorites, “Despicable Me.” This one was put on as a fundraiser by a local charitable org that provides dental care for children in need. It was free, but all the money from concessions went to the charity.

This was mid June, so George was just about 2 months old, which is why I look exhausted and he looks like a tiny thug, or maybe that’s just his hat. He did okay during the movie, he nursed for a while, fussed a little, and fell asleep for the last 30 minutes of the movie. Eleanor mostly sat still and watched the movie. As well as we could expect for the excitement of going out to the park with a bunch of people to watch a movie at her bedtime. It’s almost too exciting to sit quietly and watch the movie. She wouldn’t even hold still for a picture before the movie started.
