How to get free childcare & a drive-in movie!


step 1. 
remove/lay down the back seat of your vehicle and fill area with every blanket, sleeping bag, and pillow you own providing a cozy area to lounge.

step 2. fill containers with homemade popcorn {preferably oil popped popcorn seasoned with lawry's season salt} and tasty beverages.


step 3.  grab a fully charged laptop {preferably a mac} and a movie.

step 4. 
leave kids to enjoy their "drive-in movie" while you enjoy some kid- free time!

 You're Welcome!  


 Parental Guidance Necessary!
No kids were harmed {neglected} during the making of this post.  Vehicle was parked 5 steps away within eye-shot of mother {who desperately needed a hair appointment}.
Children enjoyed the experience and have asked when they can go to their next "drive-in movie."

Hair cut? or Shopping?

We even have a flip down dvd player in our van! Yipee. I think it may be nicer than our tv in the house. We only use it for long car trips so McKenzie really looks forward to vacations to Grandma's.
