A trip down to Salem

Doug and I decided to spend our Wednesday evening watching a movie.
In Salem.
In a random park.
What would prompt Doug and I to drive 30 minutes down to Salem to just to see a movie?
The movie was Rio. And we both like that movie, but have only seen it once.
So I spent the 30 minute car ride taking weird pictures and singing along to Call Me Maybe.

On the open road! With my frizzy bangs!
 This makes my nostrils look like different sizes... but they're not! I swear!
 The hubs
 The park
 All ready to go!

And then we did not even stay very long. Lots of bugs, too many people talking, not a good view... so we're just gonna rent the movie or something and watch it in the comfort of our home.

Cute story: This was one of the first movies Doug and I watched together.
It was about a week after I officially met him. We were at a get-together activity thingy, and they showed Rio as an outdoor movie. Doug was sitting at the back of the crowd by himself (loner!!!!) so I had him come sit next to me. Cute. Just plain cute. Awww, that seemed like just yesterday...

In the end, we just got frosty's at Wendy's. Yum.

Tons of driving, not much of a movie, chocolate soft serve, and hubby bonding time... pretty much sums it up!


  1. Hi! I saw you on the link up! Love your blog!
    Hope you had a good day! Stop by and say hi :)

  2. This post is so great! Perfect for the link-up. Thanks and I'm glad you and Doug had fun!

  3. Movie in the park? That sounds like a lot of fun! Too bad all the "Chatty Cathy's" ruined it for you :(...and bugs suck big time.
    Thanks for the link up!

  4. A movie in the park? I'm so jealous - this is something I've always wanted to do!
    The closest I've come is a drive in, ONCE! (Note to self: I need to do that again!)
    Bummer about all the negatives that made you guys leave, but as you said, at least you had that time together. Also, a little soft serve never hurts an evening ;)
