Our 2015 Date Night Bucket List

Some of the most popular posts on the blog are the Date Night Bucket List posts. I've loved creating them over the last year and a half, but our busy and unpredictable schedules made it next to impossible to complete very many of the activities that I came up with. This year, instead of creating a new list every season, I decided to write down a few of the date ideas that we've had over the last four years but haven't done yet. As we cross each date off the list over the next twelve months, I will write a post about it! I'm excited to make date night a priority this year, especially because I know it will be more of a struggle after the baby comes in May!

The Movie Grille - I just recently heard about this fun place close to us that serves you really good food while you watch a movie in their reclining leather seats. It sounds like the perfect place for a date and I can't wait to try it out! If it's as good as people say it is, it may become a regular date night location for us. Date night completed on November 21, 2015.

Drive In Movie & Picnic - I've never been to a drive in theater and it's something that I've wanted to do for a few years now. This date night would help me cross something off my personal bucket list as well. We will most likely have a sleeping baby with us for this one, but it should still be a lot of fun! Date night completed on August 15, 2015.

Lucky 13 & Bees Baseball Game - Our local minor league baseball stadium is a block or two away from a bar/restaurant that I've been told has the most amazing burgers ever. This date has been on our list for a couple of years, and this year I'm determined to make it happen. Lucky 13 date night completed on August 29, 2015.

Hike & Picnic - There are a lot of beautiful hikes in our area but we've yet to go on one together. When the leaves change colors in the fall, I think this would make the perfect family date afternoon. This date activity will also help with my goal to be more active this year.

The Melting Pot - It's one of the most romantic restaurants and the atmosphere is awesome from what I've heard. Every once and a while, we decide to splurge and eat somewhere really fancy, so I'll be looking for every excuse to celebrate something this year to give us a good excuse to eat here.

Moonlight Ride Up the Ski Slope - One of the resorts in Utah has a romantic date activity every year around late summer/early fall. You can ride the ski lift up the mountain in the moonlight. I can't remember which resort it is right now, but I've heard great things about it.

Pedal Boats & Ferris Wheel - This is a random date that I've been wanting to do for a while. I think it could be a lot of fun! There's a park downtown that has both pedal boats and a ferris wheel running during the warm months. This will make a really great afternoon date sometime.

Bowling, Mini Golf & Arcade Games - These are three of Joe's favorite things to do and it's been a while since we've done any of them together. There's a fun place ten minutes away from us where we can do all of these things plus maybe play laser tag.

Shooting Range - I shot a gun for the first time in my life a couple of years ago and ever since then we've talked about going to the range for a date, but we've never done it. Maybe I'll learn to hit the center of the target one of these days. Date night completed on June 6, 2015

Food Cart Date - We talked about doing this last summer for date night, but we spent so much time on house projects that it didn't happen. Joe wants to try a couple of local taco trucks because he misses the street tacos that he used to eat in Mexico and I really want to try the massive, as big as your head, snow cones that I see everyone post on Instagram. Date night completed on June 26, 2015

What dates would you put on your bucket list for this year?
