Wow that is funny. What kind of dog? Mine is a Yellow Lab.
Yes, you can easily walk between the two screens. There is only one way in and out by car. The one thing that concerned me were the little girls. I'd really like to see the virgin movie but the girl's would rather see Valiant I'm sure and I hate to leave the kids to themselves and certainly not the little ones. Well I'm sure we can work something out once we all get there. Maybe I'll see if my grandmother would like to go and then I'd feel better about leaving the kids there then the adults could go run amuck.

Id rather not have my kids see the virgin movie. (Im really not ready to explain what that is to them)
I think I will be watching Valiant. After that im sure my little one will be ready to sleep and Im sure my oldest will be ok with Wedding Crashers. But being 3 and 5 I dont want them out of my site, not to be a party pooper. If everyone else wants to see Virgin, I can meet up with you after Valiant.

I will have an extra seat or two in my car, and I am hoping to sit outside and watch, so anyone who wants a spot is more than welcome

I expect to be watching Valiant with my boys too....definitely not the Virgin movie...

The Wedding Crashers...have you seen that movie yet? Personally, I'm not sure if it's appropriate for kids under 14yo...there's a bondage scene that I remember being pretty graphic...particularly after it became a homosexual bondage scene...but omg was it funny...

Yeah...the only way my boys are going to be near screen 2 is in sleeping bags in the bed of my truck

Anyway, I'm sure it will all work itself out tonight...I'll give you guys a call around 7:00 when I'm near the drive-in...

Later,
Bobby

How about Bobby and I park for wedding crashers because we can both be set-up for the little ones to sleep. I don't know what you drive Trasaris but your girls are welcome to lay down in the back of my Jeep later if you wanted to leave your car at Valiant and sit over at wedding crashers. I was going to set it up with a mattress for Michael to lay down in. I was going to try and bring his dvd player because I'm sure he won't sleep but I don't want him to see the other movies either. I'm sure he would love to play with your girls he's great with younger kids. We have two little ones the same age as neighbors and he loves to play with them.

Like Bobby said I'm sure it will work out, but I'm never going to get there unless I get my ____ off this machine and get out of work.

Thanks for the warning on that one. Thats another thing im not ready to explain

Thats sounds good, I will park at Valiant. Il try to remember to bring my laptop. It has a dvd player too.

Mine love playing with kids of any age. My oldest is sometimes shy around boys (hope she stays that way) but the youngest is a social butterfly. I know they will have fun.

They have never been to the drive-in. Come to think of it the last time I was I saw airplane

Yes, we all made it. I had a great time and it was wonderful meeting everyone. Trasaris has the most beautiful little girls. Luckily little Bobby and his buddy had their gameboy's so we didn't have to worry about them being bored with the adult movie.
I hope everyone else had as much fun as I did. I'll be laughing about the night for awhile I'm sure. Good people. I'd really like to do something again soon so the rest of you better hold your calendars open.
Maybe we could plan a monthly get together or something. People could take turns finding things in their area.

Yeah, it was good to choose a place this time we were sure was still there

My boys had a good time, and I'm pretty sure the gameboys kept them from watching the movies they weren't supposed to see

I agree about keeping up with these...something regular would be nice...so does anyone have any ideas?

Any ideas for another outing?

I went with my Pack to an armory and had a thought for one. Have any of you every been to the Medieval Manor dinner theater? It's a bit on the expensive side but no more than dinner and a movie, and it can be planned way in advance giving plenty of time to plan for babysitting and saving pennies or soda cans or digging in the couch (not mine I emptied that piggy bank months ago. They say you can bring kids but I've always heard that it was not the best place for the kiddies but I have never been. I've always wanted to go but it is best to go in groups. Safety in numbers I guess.

Here's the link if you want to check it out.

I have been there. Its about 40 per person. You would definately NOT want to bring kids there. It is better in groups. 6-8 is pretty good. Make sure there is a DD, everyone gets a token for a pitcher of beer, and they are big pitchers.

I was there a couple years ago and must say it was one of the funnies thing I have ever seen.

Hey,

I went to the Medieval Manor once...I didn't pay for it (it was a work outing), but I believe that the $40 price is accurate. It was fun though, and would like going again with non-work people. It's definitely an adults-only activity, however...keep me posted!

If anyone is interested, I plan on taking little Bobby to a Home Depot Kids Workshop on Saturday Sept 10th from 9AM-12PM. I've never taken him to one before, but I imagine they have the kids do easy wood projects and this one is supposed to have a Nature theme. The workshop is free and for kids 6-12. It's at the Tyngsborough Home Depot (right off exit 38 on I495). I thought it might be a good opportunity for the parents who live this way and haven't been able to get to an activity yet (kg )...

Anyway...I'm pretty sure we're going to go to it, whether it be alone or with others...so let me know if you'd wanna come...

Later,
Bobby

OK so after gosh knows how many years of hearing about this place, could somebody tell me exactly what the Manor is all about?

Sue: the Medieval Manor is one of those places where the restaurant is set up like a castle dining room. I think that we ate with our hands, and there were big pitchers of beer and wine for drinks. There is a show to go along with the food, where the king and the serving wenches (their words) sing and tell stories and get the audience involved. It really is a good time.

kg: too bad about it being another unavailable weekend...you know, you seem to be busy enough without us

Tras: Yeah, it's kinda for the older kids and it'd be kinda far for you to travel to as well...really, I wasn't posting this to be so much of an official outing, but to just to let people know that I'll be there on that day at that time...

The Home Depot thing is a nice activity for the kids and best it's free. I have to work weekend mornings so we never get to go, but a know a lot who do.

Have any of your ever been to Tomb in Boston. We were driving past this morning and my co-worker was asking about it. I've never been but it's supposed to be kid friendly and much less expensive than the manor. The website is www.5-wits.com. It's right in Fenway next to WBCN. Most of us could take the train right in. There is a McDonalds across the street and a huge movie theater on the other side.
I too would like to try something monthly. Maybe even twice a month one with kids and one without.

OK I have been checking this Tomb site out and it looks like a bunch of fun. I'll be going this or next weekend with Michael so if anyone is interested in trying to meet up let me know.

Hi all,

I'm in central Connecticut. It's New England but seems pretty far from you guys. I'd love to get together some time but my daughter is only five so it would have to be something she'd really love in order to make a long drive. Hopefully it will work out sometime.

Hey welcome aboard. Conneticut's not far from me. I'm in South Mass. I have a boy age 9. I'm sure we will do things that would be worth the drive. Maybe you could give some ideas from your neck of the woods. Mystic always has some fun things to do.

I just wanted to put an idea out there re: something to do.

The Boston Children's Musuem holds overnights about 4 times a year. I believe the cost is about $28.00. My daughter and I have been to a couple of them and it is definately worth the drive. The next one is in October - we would be unable to make it (we will be in disney world), but just wanted to put it out there as very fun thing to do. I beleive the minimum age is 6, but I have seen younger ones there and older ones up to 13.

It is a blast!!!

Bobby - I always try to find something to do, for some reason I don't like staying home. Usually everything I do is just my daughter and I. I would like to have friends to go along with us on our outings.

wow lots to catch up on here.
The Childrens Museum sleepovers are a blast. Also, unless it's changed recently, Friday night after 5 admission is extremely discounted.

I agree maybe we should go all New England.

The Tomb place says that the shows all have a G rating, but if your kids spook easily you may want to check it out first. They do everything from kids camps to corporate events so I really think it is an all ages thing.

I'd really like to do the Manor but would prefer to go later for budget reasons, but if we picked and held a date now we could have plenty of time to plan for it. I was also thinking of what Trasaris said about a DD and thought maybe if we did an early seating we could have our drinks and fun, then do some sight-seeing after until we sobered up for the ride home.

I had another idea as well. Before this thread gets out of hand, do you think maybe we should open a thread dedicated to group activities where people could post their ideas for outings?

That's even better, that way when the activity is said and done the thread can be deleted so we can have more room for discussions on granny panties and underroos.

Here's a funny one we did at my old job. We taped it inside the bathroom door:

Poll question

How do you prepare you toilet paper for use? Do you:

A: Fold it neatly into a square.
B: Crumple it into a ball with lots of nooks and crannies.

Hi Sister, I am a single mom in Maine. My children are 16 and 20. My son's girlfriend is from Taunton and my Pastor is from Dorchester. We have a few Mass ties. This is a good site to make friends, however, I have found that you have to stay pretty connected to keep up with it. What are you doing for T'day?

My son and his g/f just came in from college tonight, as did my son's best friend who lives with us. HE attends a Vermont school and he brought his g/f who is from Montana. So, we have a house full tonight, which is cool, because it is really quiet here when it is just me and my 16 yr old. She isn't here all that much (school, b/f, social life, play practice)

My cats and I usually hang out watching CSI!!

Anyway, welcome to the site.

Hi everyone!

Well it seems like there are plenty of single parnets in New England! Sad, actually. Parenting is not meant to be a solo endevour!

I am 41, male, have one 12 y/o girl full time. My ex died 3 years ago. Before that I had her 50% of the time.

I am lucky because it has not exactly been hard (my daughter is awesome and I have always enjoyed being a dad), it just gets lonely sometimes (typical gripe). I don't have time for a woman.

BUt I hope to do some chatting! That would be great!

John
