Baseball season is in full swing!  The first official game was played on June 19, 1846.  Celebrate with some baseball movies.  These three movies are classified as family movies but preview or check reviews before sharing with your children.

I'll Be Right Here ♡

E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial began showing in theaters on June 11, 1982.  This gives you a week to plan some out of this world fun for your family and friends. I know it's a weekday but it's summer!  Pop some popcorn, grab some Reese's Pieces and enjoy this classic Steven Spielberg movie with your family and friends.  Want to go all out?  Set up your 'theater' under the stars!
