Mom Report: Movies Under the Stars

by |

Gather your children, grab your blankets and chairs, pack some snacks and head out for a fun family movie night under the stars!

I recently took my 22-month-old son and fur-baby to a movie in the park in Independence, Kentucky. We had a blast AND it was free! He was even able to run around and play while watching A Dog’s Way Home. The best part, (parents, this is for you!) I took my son in his pajamas, and he fell asleep on the way home! Bonus!

Below is a local list of outdoor summer movies for the family:
