Dinner and a Movie

A few days ago we had Family night. I made pulled pork, and steak Taco's. For sides we had coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob, and watermelon. Dessert was a smore dip that we ate during the movie.

Mom had purchased a projector that we had yet to try out so we made a make-shift outdoor movie theater pool side. It was cheesy, but oh so much fun. The kids were able to continue to swim while we set up. And the older kids continued to swim even after the movie started.

In case you are wondering the answer is yes. Yes we did string up sheets and then tie them to the deck. Hey, whatever works!

Our movie choice was Coraline directed by Henry Selick, and Michael Cachuela.
Although though movie was great I have to warn that it may not be suitable for younger children. Ours, however, thought it was a hoot.

  1. sounds like a fun night. i saw Coraline when it was in theaters. i thought it was good.

  2. Thank you Luna. I love your name. I watched it 4 times before I brought it back.

  3. thanks. you probably already know that its me, magic city college girl. i have been wanting to add a name to my blog so it shows up in comments. just like how you have your name and your separate blog name. i wanted to do the same and make my blog a little more personalized. its a nickname i've had since high school. it started from a role playing game i used to play on fridays with a group of friends.

  4. I did know it was you, and I seriously love the name Luna. The Moon or Moon Goddess, depending on your meaning, it's beautiful. I worked for an Italian restaurant when I was in my teens and the owner used to call me Lena instead of Lyn. Oh how I wanted to change my name. :)

  5. I have always wanted to set up a projector outside next to the pool! So much fun!

  6. wow that sounds like so much fun!!
