Drive-In Movie Night
On the spur of the moment we decided to go to the Admiral Twin Drive-In in Tulsa on Tuesday night! The movies showing were all PG-13 so the girls couldn't watch them. Instead we removed the third seat in the van and put their blow up Disney princess beds back there. Then we hooked up the DVD player so they could watch "The Incredibles" with headphones on. We let them bring some of their own money they've earned from doing work around the house. They bought drinks and candy. We walked around as a family and explored the drive-in movie. We used to go here when they were babies in their car seats. This Tuesday, just like when they were little, they fell asleep as the first movie started. Daniel and I reclined the front seats back and watched "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and "Batman Begins". I felt like the first movie could have used a different scene to show Angelina Jolie as an assassin in the beginning and it would have made the movie okay for teens. As it was, I think the movie should have gotten an R rating just for that scene. "Batman Begins" was surprisingly good. I'm not a big Batman fan in general, but I figured Daniel would enjoy it. Those icky masks seemed like a rehash of the old "Halloween" movies to me. I was glad that the movie didn't really have anything too "racey" in it. It's nice to see an action movie that doesn't need the hero to sleep around. Mostly, though, it's just nice to go on a date with Daniel...even if we did have to bring the kids!
