We love going to the movie theater to see the newest releases as a family. We call them our family date nights at the movies. As the kids are getting older, and busier with all of their activities, we hold these family date nights pretty sacred. For every new preview we see of a movie that we know that the kids will enjoy we mark it down and make sure to make a date on the calendar for our special trips to the movies.
Now, it is no surprise that heading the movie theater needs to be something you budget for and over the years we have changed the way our family date nights to the movies go. When the weather is not playing nice we usually make dinner at home first but for the evenings that the weather is beautiful we head to a park near our favorite movie theater and enjoy a Family Night At The Movie Theater Picnic with some of our favorite snacks.
Family Night At The Movie Theater Picnic
To create the perfect pre-movie picnic we bring our comfortable picnic blanket that we always keep in the back of my car and our favorite snacks. Now, I am not a totally mean mom, I do let my kids pick out candy when we get into the theater but for our pre-movie meal we pack our own and enjoy some extra family time at the park.
For our snacks we make sure we pack a movie must have, Pop Secret popcorn of course!! We all need popcorn to get this movie date started. But I also love to pack some of the Lance cracker sandwiches that we all love, hey I like an easy picnic for our family dates! It is so much fun to just sit and take time with Jude and Teagan, like I said, they are getting older so quickly we need to enjoy these simple but memorable moments with them.
Why Pop Secret Popcorn and Lance Crackers?
When we find a snack we like, we stick with it. It becomes a routine for us and that is why Pop Secret popcorn and Lance Crackers have been necessities for our Family Night At The Movie Theater Picnics! Pop Secret popcorn has an unbeatable taste with better ingredients and inventive flavors. Plus I love that it is a delicious, high-quality snack that I can feel good about sharing with my whole family. And what says movie night more than delicious popcorn? Brings the fun to movies!
Lance Crackers are a favorite of ours too, so many great flavor combinations and cracker options to choose from. My kids especially love the Lance Peanut Butter & Honey cracker sandwiches. Lance has been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. With real peanut butter or real cheese between crispy baked crackers, up to 5 grams of protein, and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance provides a variety of sandwich crackers that are a tasty and satisfying snack solution for your summer adventures.
While both Pop Secret popcorn and Lance Crackers are the perfect snacks to bring to our Family Night At The Movie Theater Picnic, they are also perfect for road trips, birthday party treats and school lunches. Make sure you stop in at Walmart and pick up some for your next adventure!
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
The movie we are most excited for this summer is Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. Both Jude and Teagan LOVE the first two Hotel Transylvania movies so we have been anxiously awaiting this release! In Sony Pictures Animation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation we get to catch up with our favorite monster family. The family has decided to take a family vacation on a luxury monster cruise, they all get to enjoy monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. This summer vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.
