Neighborhood Movie Night and Treat Wagon

Summer is nearing it’s end and around here it seems like it has just begun.  The girls are home on a two week break between semesters and we are squeezing every ounce of fun we can out of it!  We had a fun craft day on Monday (which I’ll share later) and then we ended the day with a neighborhood potluck and movie night.  This has become a tradition in our cul de sac.

It is a fun and easy way to get together and enjoy one another.  It seems like we are all so busy coming and going all summer long that we don’t see as much of each other as we’d like.  Monday evening was the perfect opportunity to get together.  Everyone brought what they had to the dinner and we ended up with lots of delicious and fabulous food.

I volunteered to be in charge of the movie treats.  We set up a projector outside and watched the movie on the side of the house, under the stars.  Megamind never looked so good!

I think I may just be voted the most popular neighbor after I showed up at the party with this!  At least by the little boys!!

A wagon full of just about every movie treat possible.  A trip to the dollar store filled the wagon right up!!

Just too much fun!

Oh and there was popcorn too – we just popped up some microwave popcorn and everyone filled their popcorn bag with all their treats.

The boys had a great time setting up their own concession stand with all the goodies.

If you haven’t had a chance to connect with your neighbors this summer throw an impromptu potluck and movie night. We all need that time to stop and connect and catch up – even the big boys!

And the movie was pretty darn funny too!
