One of my new favorite things to do in the Summer with my family is catch a Movie in the Park.  It’s a lot easier now that the kids can stay awake past dusk!  We can’t wait to take advantage of this year’s line-up of movies throughout Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.  Jot down all the dates, or just pick your favorites, but definitely don’t forget the popcorn.
