happily ever after

Double feature from the bus at the drive-in in the foothills of the Rockies after dark with 8 children and a pregnant wife, and a lightning storm in the background.

Pizza from Mapo’s on the way, loaded with snacks, and dessert from the concession stand.

Kids sleeping in my lap. Thermos full of Guatemalan direct-trade coffee from my friends at Coffee Ambassadors.

Two movies about love and family with happy endings and hugs galore, all for the happily ever after.

Unloading the bus at 1:45 a.m.

Sweethearted thank-you’s falling from drowsy lips.  You’re welcome.

Why? Life is good.

  1. That sounds like such a fun evening. I didn’t think there were any drive-in movies left. By the way, when is the due date of the newest Pratt baby?

  2. We try to make it to the drive-in at least once each summer. It’s a fun tradition! Sounds like a great family evening for you all. 🙂
