It was the perfect night. Perfect in its simplicity. We went to the drive-in and I haven't had this much fun since...well that's another story.
My nephews Jeremy and Jaxson were so psyched they kept telling me all week that we were actually going to go to a movie that you drive to in your car and watch OUTSIDE! We could hardly contain our excitement.
We filled my brother Micah's big black truck with a blow-up mattress (more commonly known as the cold bed) and snuggled up to watch Wall-E. I had a nephew under each arm and a nearly full moon surrounded by stars overhead. As I looked at my three brothers and my sister-in-law in lawn chairs at our feet, I realized again that I hit the jackpot in the family lottery. It just doesn't get much better than this.
