Long time readers know we are big fans of outdoor movie nights, and this weekend we hosted a party for Thing One’s group.
We upgraded our movie screen and it has been performing really well, but we had to add a little tweak this time to get it as taut as it needs to be. I think that washing and drying the movie screen will bring it back, but we didn’t have time for that Friday afternoon, so picnic tablecloth weights to the rescue!
The ants smoothed everything out nicely.
We like to keep the food pretty casual – it’s a kid party after all, so we went for all finger food and provided trays for easy on-lap eating.
This was our third time scheduling this party!! The first two attempts were rained out thanks to our new monsoon-like climate.
While it was dry, it was pretty hot and humid, so, no campfire and s’mores offered for this one, but the way those boys inhaled brownies and cupcakes, I don’t think they even noticed.
