March has been such a fun month. My husband and I have had lots of "date nights". With the added stress in our lives, we really needed it.

Last week it was my birthday and thanks to great friends and great grandparents taking our kids for the night we were able to go out for some fun. We headed downtown for a hockey game and then roamed around and stopped in the casinos!It was a great time and we normally don't get out without the kids to often.

As the kids are getting older it is getting easier to go out. I am seeing the importance of this time away, to come back and be refreshed as mom. This is something my husband and I are working at, we are both not the best at planning nights out, the few events we attended this month just happened to fall in our laps.

Don't get me wrong, we have plenty of time alone for us, the kids go to bed fairly early. We play games, cards, etc, but leaving the house and getting out is a nice change.

How about you guys, do you have regular outings with your husband, or do you feel the need to?

  1. We love to get away and have some quiet time to smile and laugh. A favorite "date" for us is to go to St. Clair, or Port Huron, and walk the board walk. We watch the ice flow in the winter and we watch the wather travel peacfully down stream in the summer. We find it very relaxing to be outside and just enjoy the calmness of the river. After a stroll we sit on one of the benches for a time or lay on a blanket and visit. Coffee or icecream cone optional.
