Sometimes it is nice to just sit and relax at home with the family. Movies are a favourite past time for my children and I.  We don’t have cable or satellite for television, so we watch a whole lot of movies.  In my home, we like to eat dinner while we watch a movie so homemade pizza is the go-to food.  Sometimes we like to prepare movie time snacks to enjoy with our movie too, like popcorn, chips and ice cream.  To drink we prefer sports drinks over soda pop but it all is up to what you like.  Here is a list of family summer movies that you will enjoy!
