It’s that time of the month again, time for another round of my Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series where I look at bringing you guys cool and interesting things to do in and around Johannesburg this Summer all whilst under the protective force field created by Peaceful Sleep’s extensive Family Care Range.
This time I wanted to do something that was not only fun for the whole family but also a bit out of the ordinary, something that I don’t think a lot of people have thought about doing, something that allows you to enjoy the outdoors the fresh air and the night sky all whilst sitting comfortably on your behind eating snacks and watching Alec Baldwin in a babies body making jokes and wearing sock suspenders like a boss (do people still wear these things?!).
Ok so if you’re wondering what I’m going on about, here it is…On Sunday I thought it would be cool to have an outdoor cinema set-up in our garden, big screen, beanbags, popcorn and the early evening sky above us. So that is exactly what we did, a super awesome little company called Fun-FX came and set everything up for us and then we invited some friends over, made loads of popcorn, spritzed all our ankles and arms with a bit of Peaceful Sleep Mosquito Repellant (which offers eight hours of protection) and landed up having the nicest evening and the best part is that Nina James AND Rex loved it! I didn’t know if they would both sit through a whole movie, but they did and yes even Rex sat on his dad’s lap in the garden and watched half a movie before drifting off to la-la land, it was pretty amazing!
Sometimes the simplest ideas are always the best ones, it also didn’t hurt that it was right in our backyard, so after the movie we just ambled on upstairs and literally hit the sack!
If any of you have ever thought about doing something like this I highly recommend it, it was really cool and just so out of the ordinary. I’m definitely arranging one of these nights again, imagine how awesome a braai, some special mommy/daddy slushies (hehe) and The Big Lebowski would be! Insert babysitter here 🙂
