Sometimes a Virginia Summer means it’s just too hot and humid to play outside. This Summer has been off the charts in the heat department. Occasionally when everyone is hiding from the heat by staying indoors, we have to close the curtains and blinds to darken the house, cook up some buttery popcorn and put on a movie.
I got these great popcorn containers in the dollar section at Target. They make it feel official. I try to keep some Dum-Dum lollipops or licorice on hand which puts the movie-watching experience right over the top for the kids. Then we put on an oldy-but-goody, like Star Wars or the Princess Bride. Who doesn’t love something sweet, something salty and a good show?
