Live List: Drive-in Theatre

Hello Folks,

I’ve been trying to catch up on my live list posts so I thought I’d share some snippets from our experience at the drive-in theatre! The theatre we went to was in Gatineau, you can visit their website here. It was about 15-20 minutes from Ottawa and super affordable! It’s only $12 for two movies!

I thought I’d share a few tips that we gathered from our experience there:

First: reviews said to bring screens for the windows and frankly we had no idea why you’d need them because normally drive-in’s get their sound from a radio station. Well, I was right about the radio station thing, but the screens were to keep out mosquitos so you could have your windows rolled down. Boy did we wish we had screens! We were boiling so we’d periodically turn the AC on, but we ended up screwing the car battery and had to get our car jump started before we left haha (oops!)

Second: bring your own snacks! Ben and I brought popcorn, cherries, coke and water from home so we didn’t have to buy snacks. Like most movie theatres, drive-in’s tend to be over priced too. But it’s always nice to support independent things like drive-ins, so we did end up buying a second popcorn later on haha.

Third: get there early so you can pick a good spot to watch! Lucky for us we ended up being there about 30 minutes early and the english screenings seemed to be far less popular than the french one so we had quite the pick of where to park, but I was so glad because I would have hated having a crummy view haha.

Anyways, it was loads of fun and a definite summer must-do! I mayyy have nodded off in the second flick, but overall, I’d love to go back. Here are a few photos.

Live List: Picnic + Pond

Hello Folks,

I have been a little more active on here the last couple days. I did a few updates that hopefully made navigating a bit easier, and will help you to find the type of posts you want to read less frustrating.

One of the changes I made to my blog was a “page” called The Live List, and it’s a bucket list of sorts that my boyfriend and I created together to make the most out of this life we were given together (cheesy I know) but it’s been loads of fun! The idea was inspired by Kelly Jensen, and you can read a bit more about it here.

We have so much fun adding new items and even more fun completing them. The other day we completed our “picnic” and “swimming in a pond” ones! Here are some (crappy iPhone) photos from those days!

 Ok so our picnic may have been on a bench but it had the best view!
