Mom feared her family would drift apart

Sonja Woods' mom passed away a year ago. Before her death, she worried that her family might someday drift apart.  So Sonja and her sisters try to do things once each month that their children and grandchildren will never forget. Sonja's sister-in-law, Sherry Pratt of Ohio, may have created the most memorable nights of all. She recalls, "I was scrolling on Amazon and saw these movie projectors, and it hit me. Would't it be fun to have an outdoor movie night?"

Outdoor movies are fun, but Sherry made them unforgettable by converting cardboard boxes into little "cars" so the kids could enjoy an old fashioned drive-in. Her son made license plates for each "car" with the name of a child on it. Sherry also supplied personalized candy cups, popcorn, corn dogs and juices for the children to enjoy as they sat in their "cars" watching the movie. "I just like to build memories for them so they can remember as we get older," she said. her niece, Jessie Woods, posted drive-in photos on Twitter and they were an instant hit.
