School’s out for the summer!!
In our house, that means a big party on the last day of school. The kids come over on the bus, throw their back packs in the mudroom, (not to be looked at again for at least two months) and run for the pool. Their parents join the party later, as they get off work, and the party turns into a big family bar-be-que.
The highlight of the evening is a movie under the stars on the tennis court with everyone snuggling in bean bags and pillows, munching on popcorn and raisinettes.
The big task, for me, is always finding a really great movie for everyone – funny? scary? an old favorite? I decided this year, to try to find something surrounding RVing – it IS summer, after all – and that is our business!
There are more movies out there then you would expect that have to do with RVs. While they’re not ALL appropriate for ALL ages, the search was fun. Take a look at what I found!
