This time of year gives a much-needed break from our traditional schedules and demands. Summer can certainly develop a hectic pace, but I try to savor each simple pleasure. Over the years I have spent many summer nights with family and friends enjoying popcorn, glass bottle Cokes, and some of my favorite movies. I can’t let school start back without letting the kids and grandkids stay up past bedtime and enjoy these classic films.
Let Annie and Hallie’s summer camp conspiracies of The Parent Trap bring out your inner matchmaker. Or let the hilarious antics of Alfalfa and his gang in The Little Rascals be a sweet reminder of a childhood spent with neighborhood friends. Add sports to the mix and laugh as the The Sandlot team schemes to rescue their baseballs from Mr. Mertle’s junkyard.
Maybe you’re in the mood for a song? I love movies with classic music and I can’t help but sing along to “You’re the One That I Want” and the rest of the catchy tunes from Grease. Do you have a favorite summer film? Make sure to share it with those you love, and pass the popcorn!
