Drive-In Movie Theater

Story told by: Lainey

I had my fourth birthday party with friends today, and it was a drive-in movie theater party! We delivered boxes to each of my friends beforehand so they could bring a car with them for the movie.

Grandma and I worked hard on my car over the past few days. I chose a cupcake theme for my car.

On my actual birthday a few days ago, we learned that Henry gets very frustrated (i.e. raging) while I’m opening presents because he doesn’t understand why he can’t open my presents. We decided that no one needed to see Henry’s super awesome temper tantrum, so we chose to open presents at the beginning of the party when we were sure that Henry would be napping.

We ate “popcorn” cupcakes next!

Mommy used yellow and white marshmallows to make the popcorn.

My friends sang “Happy Birthday” to me. All of that attention made me a little shy.

Time to dig in to the cupcakes!

We went downstairs, and Grandma helped us load up our plates with some yummy movie food!

Then we all settled in to our cars for the movie! (Since I’m the birthday girl, I got to choose my spot. Mommy and Daddy thought I might like to be in the front, but I wanted to be right in the middle surrounded by my friends.)

We watched the movie “Peanuts,” which was a big hit with my friends!

Joseph’s Mommy said he really wanted a hood, which made his movie watching a little difficult, but he made it work!

Mommy especially loved this party! We got a little wiggly towards the end of the movie, but we stayed in our cars for the entire movie (90 minutes). Amazing!!

After the movie was over, I had a dance party with my friends. I absolutely loved this party, and I love my friends!
