Our church has an annual outdoor movie night in the summer as a way to do something fun and not church-related with the members. While these do not tend to be well attended, they are still fun nonetheless. In any event, it was thrilling that the weather cooperated and we could actually be out on the church’s labyrinth again. Of course, the bugs were out too.
This year we also decided to do hot dogs and chips and lemonade before the movie, which fortunately with the donations for the food covered our personal costs since we were the ones who purchased it. Actually it covered our costs with a dollar to spare. Whew!
I’m not sure what we are going to show next year or if we will even decide if the event is worth the effort, but I do know that it was great to be able to take the kids with us. Even though the movie didn’t start until after their bedtime! I’m not looking forward to finding out just how cranky they’ll be this morning for church.
