Once a month at Barnet Park a local church is having free movies!
A friend invited us and Saturday night we all headed out for 'Evan Almighty'.
This church does it right....free movie on the big screen, free watermelon while you're hanging out waiting, free popcorn and cokes during the movie, and nice fellows coming around spraying you down with sunscreen all the while!
They also gave out gobs and gobs of gift certificates to local restaurants and stores. Wouldn't you know that our friend, Summer M, was the very first name they called!! She won a free dinner at The Flounder. Yeah Summer!!
The kids really enjoyed the waiting part...they threw the football, wrestled, danced, rolled in the grass, played in the neighbors' bubbles and in general had a great summer evening.
By the time the movie started at 9:00, yes 9:00, they were pretty pooped. It was still hard to get them sit down and watch. I think the movie was a little over their heads but they still enjoyed the overall "idea" of the movie...Noah's Ark.
We lasted until it was about 10 minutes from the end and then we all headed out to beat the crowds.
Overall a GREAT time in the park....we will definitely be back next month for Shrek 3!!
