Summertime for moms and dads isn't nearly as much fun as it is for our kids. We still have to work, pay bills, and tend to all the grown-up responsibilities of life, even when it's a hot, sunny, absolutely perfect summer day. What I have discovered this summer, is that I can relive the summers of my childhood and enjoy a little downtime with my kids by watching some of my favorite family movies together. So far our movie festival has included classic Disney films Pollyanna (1960) and Swiss Family Robinson (1960) and my all-time favorite Born Free (1966) which I first saw filmstrip style at my local library as part of their summer reading program.
We've rounded up a few oldies but goodies for your viewing pleasure. Who's bringing the popcorn?!
- The Parent Trap (1968)
- The Sandlot (1993)
- Gidget (1959)
- South Pacific (1958)
- Swiss Family Robinson (1960)
