Rob and I had such a fun date night on Friday at the drive in movie. Four times during the summer, one of the car dealerships in Pensacola organizes a free drive in movie near the baseball stadium and right on the bay. As soon as I heard about it, I knew this was just our speed. We went to a drive in movie in Blacksburg a couple of years ago and had a great time, but I think this drive in was even better! Being right on the water we had an awesome breeze (no bugs!) and getting out after the movie was fast and efficient.
The movie started at 8:30 (Sherman and Mr. Peabody---but the movie is really only part of the experience!) and I read online that parking fills up fast. Of course, we were there right at 6 when they started parking and were the first car on the lot! It was worth it as we ended up with one of the best spots on the lot, right in the front of the truck section, with a huge open area in front of us.
After parking the car, we walked around downtown and grabbed picnic food to bring back for the movie. We stopped by Seville's for our Friday tradition of wine tasting and picked up a bottle of wine for the movie. Luckily they helped us pick out a great twist off because we forgot our bottle opener! Our next stop was Ever'mans for some wraps, chips and sweets. Then we walked back to the movie to get all set up. We blew up the air mattress in the bed of the truck, covered it with pillows and blankets, and then climbed in for the movie. Our set up was so comfy, I totally could have slept there all night!
