    We have a Thursday night tradition (that’s our date night, because it’s the end of our work week): a crusty loaf of French bread, a hunk or two of yummy cheese (most often including a smoky brie), and a bottle of red. We talk about anything and everything. Anything that’s on our mind from the week, to unload and unwind. Nice romantic music in the background, dim lighting, candles… it’s perfection. We look forward to it sooooo much! Plus, it’s cheap and easy.

    Eh, I like the whole dinner date thing. We tend to have adventures as a family when we have my stepson, so our date nights are pretty quiet. Some family things we do are: Wildlife park (little one loves it and we have annual passes so we go often), zoo, cable car (in Wellington so obviously not a suggestion but may trigger an idea for something near you), going for ice cream, museums, looking in rock pools. All of the above are fun without a kid, promise! We also like going for coffee/lunch somewhere neither of us have been before.

    Our date nights are usually pretty boring-dinner and a movie too. But we also like to switch it up and do a hike picnic.

    My hubby and I just tried doing a date night just like this a few weeks ago. I played college softball and he played high school baseball. We got to our local spot like you went to, only to find out there wasn’t any batting cages. We were so sad that we just went home, didn’t even do anything else. I love active date nights like this, it’s fun to be a kid again!

    We take turns planning one “secret” date a month. The other person just knows the date and time, but I plan everything else and it usually includes a meal and an activity. It takes the pressure off of trying to agree on something on the spot.
    It also got a lot easier trying to pick things to do by making a bucket list for our city. We would like to move someday, so I made a list of things I would be sad not to have experienced if we left… like the WW1 museum, seeing a show in the KC Symphony Hall and a bunch of restaurants. Even if you aren’t planning on leaving, having a list of things you have never done before to look at could make it easier to choose!

    You really look like you had a lot of fun! We went to a sushi class once for date night (or date day) and that was a really cool thing to do together.

    We like to take turns planning a surprise date once a month for each other. We ended up at a restaurant where I ate antelope for the first time ever and another time we rented SUP’s and took a lesson-it was a blast!

    your date sounds very fun! we mostly do dinner and drinks as our nights out, but i kind of consider everything we do together “dates’… even crossfit, the driving range, ice cream, mini golf, dog park, beach, hikes, runs, etc. it’s kind of fun to think of it like that!

    Some of my favorite date nights have involved Bowling! I also am a sucker for mini golf/driving ranges. I also love dates that involve anything outside, whether it’s just a hike or going to check out a baseball game!

    Love your shorts, you’re wearing in the batting cage! Where did you get them?

      They’re Brooks PureProject. I’m obsessed! They have pockets and are super comfortable.
