Fun and Unique Dates

Okay, so Luke and I are the kind of people who have our routines and usually don't deviate from them. When we go on our date nights, we usually go out to dinner. Sometimes to a movie if it is a really special event. ;)

This weekend we were invited to attend a special event sponsored by his work - it was dinner and a short ride on the river cruise boats in downtown/bricktown. This was NOT the canal tour, but actually a nice-sized riverboat that went up and down the river (same place where they do the rowing races, etc.). We were able to spend some 1-on-1 time and just enjoy the ride and conversation.

This got me to thinking that some of our best/most memorable dates have been the unusual ones, the special ones.

*visiting the zoo (before we were even engaged!)
*watching Phantom of the Opera on Broadway in NYC
*spending a day exploring Niagara Falls
*fishing on Grand Lake together

While some of these "dates" were a little more expensive than others, I remember them all because they were unique.

So now I'm plotting... how can we break out of our routine again soon???

  1. Ah, yes, the dreaded "routine date." I keep telling my hubby we can (and do!) eat out anytime. It takes a little something "extra" to qualify as a date.

    River cruises . . . sounds interesting!

  2. I'm ready for ANY date, routine or otherwise!

  3. River cruise does sound interesting. One of my favourite date memories is when my husband picked me up early one morning and drove four hours to take me to my favourite mountain town for "lunch." We had breakfast on the tailgate of his truck on the way. :)
