Where the Wild Things Are

Tonight, our little family had the pleasure of attending an outdoor movie at Penn Treaty Park, which is just down the street from our house.  The Friends of Penn Treaty Park and the Philadelphia Department of Recreation hosted the movie.  Chris and I ate a quick (but home-cooked) dinner before walking to the park for the supposed 7 PM start.  I didn't want to miss any of the film!  Well, it was 8:30 before the movie started!  I would have been annoyed at such a delay in most other circumstances, but we met some great neighbors and chatted during the time before the movie began.

Luke was very happy walking to the park in his Ergo carrier, where he remained quite content for nearly an hour after arriving.  (We normally walk him in the stroller and take the carrier along in case he gets fussy.)  We took a big quilt and two lawn chairs, as well as a box of dark-chocolate Raisinets for movie-time munching. 

The sound was very loud, and Luke got scared a couple times.  A few times, when I was nursing him under our sling, he was startled by the loud noises, but all was fine after he ate and had some more cuddle time in the carrier.  He eventually fell asleep for a bit.

All-in-all, the Kellys enjoyed a great, free night out, something we hope to do more!
