Let's All Go to the Drive-In!

Last week, on a whim, the Hubs & I decided to FINALLY visit the Drive-In movie theater! We must have had a ton of fun on the lake on Sunday- because we slept on and off most of Monday! :) That afternoon, we decided to head about 40 minutes north to Strasburg, Ohio to the Lynn Drive-In to see The Avengers (which was great!) and Dark Shadows (we went home after the first flick- Billy did have to work in the morning). 

Now, had we planned this trip a bit more carefully, we would have planned for dinner at Hog Heaven, also in Strasburg, which is one of our favorite bar-b-que restaurants. They have a dessert called the "Hog Log" that involves deep-frying cheesecake in a tortilla & covering said fried-ridiculousness with chocolate syrup, strawberries, whipped cream, and possibly a little magical dust. It's stupid-good. Next time we'll do that for sure.

We rolled up around 8:30. This place is really neat! You choose one set of two movies to watch for the evening. You steer your car towards one screen, hopefully park near a working speaker (although you can also tune in your car's radio to hear, too), lay out your blankets & lawn chairs, grab your snacks, and settle in for a double feature!

Even the snack room is a blast from the past with old arcade games. Billy swears he saw some guys arm-wrestling in there, but I'm not so sure...haha.

I managed to take a few pictures while we were there:

I love the old-timey-ness of it all! Billy decided the last movie he saw at the Drive-In was E.T!

It was nice that night. Not a million people.

The projector room

If you're near this part of the world- you should check it out!






$6 a person for 2 movies- an affordable (late) night out!

The next time we go we will definitely stay for both movies! 


On a completely unrelated-yet-precious note: look what I found in a fern on my front porch!





What I think are the parents are keeping a close eye on the nest and are flying away every time I pass the front door or step out on the porch. I can't wait to see them when they hatch! I love all the random materials they make their nests out of. 

Is that some Easter grass in there?

Happy Weekend, Everyone!
