Preparing for a Summer Fun Family Night with Nestle and Tombstone

I just adore being a grandmother and spending time with my grandchildren is a true joy in my life. I think I'm very lucky to have these four marvelous little people to love.

We always enjoy getting together as a family, and I love trying to come up with creative ideas to have fun with my grandchildren. We had Dinner and A Movie Night a few months ago and it was such a big hit with everyone that I decided it was time to do it again. Summer is the perfect time for casual, fun family gatherings and  there is no such thing as too much fun in my book!


I headed to my local Walmart to do a little shopping for our Dinner and A Movie Night. My two little grandsons love ice cream and pizza of course, so that is what is on the menu. Nana likes to make them happy!

We have all loved Nestle Drumsticks in our family for years, so they are the perfect choice as a treat to have while we watch the movie. But with all these choices of drumsticks, I just have to get a few different kinds!


My family always enjoys Nestle Tombstone Pizza so that's what I've chosen to get for dinner. I love pizza with tons of toppings, especially veggies, but the kids only like pepperoni pizza. I'll buy a few of the Tombstones so that there will be plenty of pizza for our fun night.

My cart full of Nestle Tombstone #GrabSummerFun items from Walmart


I have picked up some chips and dip, pinwheels for the boys, bubbles, and some fun paper plates. I'm hoping we don't have any rain so that we can have dinner out on the deck, and the kids can blow bubbles and play with their pinwheels before we eat.

I have also found a cute painting project on Pinterest from SheKnows.com for them to do. It is so simple and easy for young children to do, and I love the 4th of July theme. The boys love painting and this will be fun. Here's hoping the sun shines!



On the evening of our little party, it is pouring down rain. I am disappointed that we can't eat outside and the kids can't play outside either. But we will just eat inside and not let the rain stop us from having fun. We always like to #GrabSummerFun indoors or out!




I'm making the classic and super simple onion soup and sour cream dip to go with potato chips. I know some people might think it's a little out of date but I fondly remember my parents making it all the time. I still love it and so does my family.



It is so easy preparing for our Dinner and A Movie Night that I feel almost like I'm cheating! But easy is good, and as long as my family has fun, that's all that matters.



I'm previewing a couple of movies to see what we should watch. The kids love Alvin and The Chipmunks, but I also want to choose something that will appeal to the grown-ups too. But who doesn't love Alvin? I know I still do!


This preview looks pretty cute and age appropriate for the little guys. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked will be our movie this evening. My preparations for dinner and A Movie Night are easy enough that I can relax and enjoy myself with my family. Can't wait to get started, and I am getting a little hungry for that Tombstone pizza and Drumstick ice cream. I'll let you know how our night turns out!
