Allen and I had a date night planned last night that ended up being a unique experience. Our dinner-and-a-movie date turned into an outdoor movie on the lawn of the Missouri state capitol!
We headed down to Jefferson City last night for an outdoor showing of “Shrek” outside the capitol. There were a lot of people there and tons of kids (obviously) but it was really fun to spread out a blanket and see a movie outside.
We got to Jeff City around 8:15 p.m. and the movie was supposed to start around 8:45. It didn’t get rolling until a little after 9, but we had fun people-watching. All of the kids were going crazy, having a ton of fun running up and down the stairs, and it was really fun to watch.
For snacks, we brought along some popcorn, because what’s a movie without it? I made this gooey M&M’s and almond popcorn from The Kitchn. It was REALLY good:
