65. go to a drive-in movie

When I wrote my 101 in 1001 list last fall, I included going to a drive in movie.  I thought it would be fun to do something different, but little did I know that when we moved, there would be only 30 minutes away!

A few weekends ago, we ventured to Monetta, South Carolina to visit The Big Mo. Before the summer temperatures got to be to warm we wanted to check this one off the list and surprisingly, the weather was pretty perfect for this kind of activity.  I actually got to use the blankets I brought thanks to a nice little breeze we had most of the evening.

To prep for our mini-trip, I made popcorn at home and loaded blankets and pillows into the back of the SUV {many people brought lawn chairs instead of watching from their cars}.  We also picked up sandwiches from Fresh Market on our way out of Augusta.  A great little picnic for a drive-in!

Have you ever been to a drive in?
