Rain Or Shine, Summertime is Prime Time For Family Movies

disclaimerRain Or Shine, Summertime is Prime Time For Movies

Do you look forward to the last day of school, when the doors open and the kids are home day in, day out for weeks? Have you planned activities for each day or enrolled them in summer camp? Or…has the end of the school year arrived too soon, and you’re scrambling to figure out how to keep the kids entertained?

With a four year old daughter, and a two and a half year old son, my minions are full of endless energy. Houston temperatures are already in the 90s and it’s just May, so catching a movie to escape the unbearable Houston heat, is the best way to keep all of us entertained. Its an added bonus when both kids want to sit in my lap, and snuggle, while we watch something on the big screen. They’re probably just getting closer to the popcorn, but either way I enjoy having them cuddle.

Sure, we could go swimming in our neighbor’s pool, but why go swimming when the temperature is over 100 degrees, and the pool feels like a pot getting ready to boil? I’d much rather sit in a cool movie theater, sipping on ICEES. Actually, it doesn’t matter if its hot, nice, or the worst thunderstorm in years, we love movies, and the weather is just an excuse to see the newest release.

Year round, movie theaters are a great place to spend time together, but summertime when some of the biggest movies of the year are released, is one of my favorite. What are you most excited to see this summer?

    Swimming is not fun when the water gets that hot… it’s not even refreshing at that point! Staying inside in air conditioned comfort watching a movie is perfect though.

    Yes, movies are great when it gets really hot! We have a great local summer movie program for kids that we’re doing this summer!
