Movie in the Park

Tonight might have been my favorite event of the holiday season. The Austin Parks and Recs was hosting a movie night tonight at Republic Square Park in downtown Austin. The show was completely free. You just bring your picnic dinner, cozy blankets (we even saw a beanbag or two) and the people you love for some good ole holiday movie watching (Dogs welcome too!). Rosie George didn't make it because let's face it--- it wouldn't have been very enjoyable for anyone else with food.

Crazy to think that yesterday evening was 72 degrees and tonight was 49 degrees. Hello, cold front. Surprisingly, all the movie snuggling kept us really warm ---- and there was always the hot chocolate stand right there if we were to get a little cold. Tonight featured two movies: The Classic Clay Rudolph Movie and the cartoon Grinch movie. We only stayed for the first hour (first movie) because we didn't want to chance our luck with some sleepy May kids. Such a fun night! I believe that this is the only holiday one of the season but they have movie nights all spring and summer too...

We will definitely be doing this next year too!
