An $8 date

We've made it a priority in our marriage to have a date every week. This may sound expensive, but our dates are rarely the traditional dinner and a movie type dates. In fact, the one time we did eat out and see a movie the same day, it was lunch and a matinĂ©e. 

 For our most recent date, we took a long walk downtown.

 We walked along the canal...

 watched the local animals...

had fun taking photos...

 watched part of a free concert that happened to be going on...

and saw parts of the city we'd never seen before, like the central library.

(It's pretty epic.)

And we just had fun.

We bought some sorbet at the mall, which was our only expense other than the unavoidable parking costs. 

It was one of the best dates we've had in a while!


  1. those are the best kind of dates, exploring your our city.

    ps. BABY DUCKS!!!!!

  2. Simple are the best/most memorable. :) We just did a picnic this afternoon in the "ravine" (open air amphitheater) on campus. So much fun!

    1. Enjoy being on campus while you can! Lately I've found myself missing college somewhat, but I think a lot of what I miss is being surrounded by the beautiful landscaping and architecture. So, this date helped with that.

  3. Low key dates are the best! So cute baby duckies :)

  4. That looks so fun! And a good deal for a fun date too! :-)


Let me know your thoughts on this. I love reading all my comments!
