Movie in the yard with 60 of our favorite family movies!

This summer I spring cleaned the storage room. (can it technically be called spring cleaned if it was done in the summer?)

Anyways…this room is my “Monica’s closet”monicas-closet1Except it’s a whole room. That is huge. and filled with everything I think I will ever need ever. plus Holiday decorations, extra bedding, old frames, a ping pong table, old decor, food storage, and basically everything I want to hoard.

And Husband made me clean it out (how rude…although I’m sure it was a health hazard) so I did and found two air mattresses in there. And I knew one had a hole. (and I kept it just in case) So I blew one up to see if it had a leak. And  then I decided to throw it outside so the kids could lay on it to watch a movie from my laptop (because sometimes I’m a cool mom) have-a-fun-movie-in-the-yard

It was so fun. (so even though this air mattress was the one with the hole I still kept it…because now I have a reason!) I just threw on a some fun blankets and pillows and set up the laptop with some speakers. It was right as the sun was setting (the screen had a glare so this definitely best for night time viewing!) I picked Goonies…because HELLO classic. And then as I was in and out I realized that it was pretty inappropriate! (gah! I hate that! although I still love goonies) So I wanted to share our top 60 FAVORITE FAMILY movies…that AREN’T Cartoons! (My husband doesn’t love watching cartoons-even though they are the best ever!) So these are all great movies that young to old will Love! My kids are 8-13 and this list is pretty much made by them. I put princess Bride (my favorite all time)  and they just filled out the rest! In no particular order…and these are old and new!60-of-our-most-favoritest-family-movies-that-arent-cartoons
