What's your idea of a (cheapish) dream date?

Steve wants to go on a really nice date tomorrow and he wants my ideas. I have none. Like, at all. I don't sit very well anymore (cuz of that one bad car accident and my now-awful back), so movies and concerts where long sitting is required are kind of out. Other than that....

What do you guys think?

My favourite cheap date ever was driving out to the local lake, and going for a walk around it, holding hands, and then getting ice cream cones afterwards. Simple but lovely.

There's also silly fun kind of things, like bowling, laser tag, ice skating, swimming...

How about Oceans 13 or Harry Potter? Or dinner or something like that?

I love to go to Park City, look at all the little shops, art, get a carmel apple with white chocolate and cinnamon, and sneak into the Marriott hot tubs. (I can tell you more detail on how to do that last part if you want) :)

Dinner out is always my fave. Barnes and Noble (I know you guys like that one). I like going on walks, visiting friends, watching the sunset, IKEA (cheap food, fun stuff to look at), window shopping/people watching at any mall, playing games with your favorite sister and brother-in-law *hint*... I hope you have fun!

I like art exhibits. They are cheap, and you can wander around and comment on interesting pieces. They make for good conversation. There's a list in the Sunday Deseret News (are you in Utah?) that has local artists.

Also, they make me want to write. I forgot to bring something to write with the last one and I was so mad. But maybe that's not datelike behavior--"Excuse me for a second, honey, gotta write."

I haven't been to that many exhibits on dates with my husband, just a couple. But they've been fun. And then you can do dinner if you want also, or just a treat.

LOL...kimberly said exactly what we do for our dates. I, too, can't sit for long periods (three kids have done a # on me) and we also do not like the "typical" dinner/movie dates.

We also like to walk around "downtown" areas of small towns and "window shop" while having a coffee or ice cream.
