Two things I have said before:
1. I live on the world's best street.
2. I am married to the world's most fantastic man. (click on that link if ya don't believe me)
This weekend our goal was to pull off a stay-cation on the cheap.
With that in mind, Nathan came up with his best idea yet -- a backyard cinema. He accomplished it in sweet style, using some industrial sized clips, a white sheet, a MacAir, some killer desktop speakers including a subwoofer, extension cords, and a projector.
We told our neighbors to arrive at 8:45 p.m. But with pre-show music like this, the yard was full by 6:45. Again, I say--LOVE this street and these people.
Sugar the children.
Check, check and double check.
See Nathan (green shirt) and Ian (orange shirt) in the front, on a blanket?
If anyone was irritated with Nathan/my constant shutterbugging, they didn't let on. Thanks, guys.
Oh, and if you plan to put on a backyard cinema at your house, glow sticks/bracelets, etc. are an absolute MUST. What you see here is seven children in a flurry of glow stick heavenly madness on our swingset.
Since said children spent most of the movie running around with their glowing goodness, we parents are considering a movie for us next time and, since our trial run was successful, we hope even more neighbors (Jenni--that means you :) join us. This night was absolutely delightful and our backyard will definitely be open for business again soon!
What did YOU do this weekend? Did you blog it? If so, link it here for us, pretty please.
