Father’s Day 2010



Father’s Day was a special day for a couple of reasons…not only did we celebrate a really great dad but we also took Rudy to his first movie and not just ANY movie but a drive-in double feature!!!  For the record, Rudy’s first movie experience included Toy Story 3 and the new Karate Kid movie.  Toy Story 3 was so cute and had an ending that made me cry!  I can’t comment on The Karate Kid as I fell asleep…in fact, I think Wilson was the only one who made it through the whole thing!! Ha Ha  We were crazy partiers staying out until 1:30am (and we all paid for it the next day) but it was fun and memorable.  Rudy was a star.  He beamed and did his “happy kick”  throughout all the pre-show activity and fell asleep in his Daddy’s arms pretty soon after the first movie started…right on que.   Although he slept through most of the evening, I think he was thrilled knowing he was part of the party…

Tailgate movie party complete with snack table and presents!

Rudy likes the drive-in scene!

Here’s to another “first” in Rudy’s journey…

    Are drive-in movies making a comeback or did the Kansas wind just destroy all of those we used to attend? Still just as much fun, it seems to me. Gma Jo

    Looks like you had a little nicer & warmer weather as last time watching “Shrek 4” ;–)
    It’s so much fun to look at the pictures of you and the kids (even more after our recent visit) and Rudy sure looks good!!
    Thinking of you a lot,
    Yours Astrid & Wolfgang
