How many days of Summer?

Stinks that there are only forty eight days of summer this year...
just kidding. It just feels that way since we haven't chronicled our mini adventures so far. But sadly, forty eight is the amount of days LEFT this summer.
Last summer, this blog was intended to help us stay motivated to do stuff, or, not get bored, with so much time on our hands. This summer, we've managed to keep busy enough to have only a few boredom days. Now that we've taken a good look at Rachel's summer bucket list, it's time to start keeping track again, so we don't miss out on all the fun stuff we do. That's what blogs are for, right?

So why is there a picture of Jimmy Stewart in this post?
Summer Bucket List item #4:
Watch some movie classics.

Here's that list:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Star Wars (original, duh)
Fried Green Tomatoes
The Elephant Man
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Rear Window
The Shining (maybe not)

Tonight we watched Rear Window. One of my all time favorites. It was fun watching Rachel cringe and stay on the edge of her seat. "Did he kill her or not? Just tell me!" When it was over, I interviewed the audience.
Mark- "Classic."
Rachel- "That was really good."
Me- "Don't you just love George Bailey?"

We've also watched Poltergeist. That was at the beginning of the summer when cousins Adeline and Alex were here visiting from California. Watching it after all these years was kinda funny... graphics and effects have come a long way from pop-up coffins and raw steaks that crawl across the kitchen counter ('member that?). With that said, none of us could tear ourselves away from the t.v. that day!
Adeline, Alex, and Rachel saying goodbye. Sad face.
Anyone have other classic movie suggestions for us? We'd love to hear your favorites.
