We had a lot of fun this 4th of July weekend and one of the silly things we tried out was watching a full length feature film while floating in the pool!The kids had purchased a projector for us for Christmas and they had this little idea in the back of their minds ever since.
The day had been hot, the pool was warm, and it was a beautiful night. Tech-boy Peter, 17, made a screen/speaker set up and we were convinced to give it a try.
We all went out for ice-cream and stopped by the local superstore to check out the floatie selection. Low and behold, the perfect pool loungers were clearanced out cheap so what do you do? At that point it was pretty much destiny.
...loading up with our prize inflatables!So we rushed home, pumped up floaties, chose a patriotic film in honor of the 4th ( The Patriot) and viola! The perfect luxurious movie viewing experience.
I laughed so hard at first when we were getting situated...trying to point ourselves toward the screen and not drift around.
I also kept thinking that floating around like this reminded me of something...
Oh yeah...I felt a little like this...
At the end of the show, the kids declared it to be the best way to watch a movie and "so much fun we could sell tickets!"
The plan is to watch a fun comedy soon and of course, everyone votes that we have to include a night where we watch "Jaws".
Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!
