It seems that with summer comes many parades…at least around our area. I went on a tour of a candy factory a few weeks ago and picked up some different kinds of taffy that we used as part of our date. What parade is complete without taffy? We did some taffy tasting to start. Some of our favorite flavors were red licorice, buttered popcorn, and macadamia nut. We would pass on the eggnog flavored taffy next time.
As we munched on taffy we looked up some facts about parades. Did you know that floats originate from medieval times? We didn’t! To round out our date we watched slides of this year’s Rose parade. Talk about some incredible floats!
For this date we planted our garden. I guess planting a garden can get expensive, but you can pick up some inexpensive seeds and plants if you search a little. It was fun to get in the dirt and plant our garden. We figure it will help us out with our grocery bill in the long wrong. It was a simple date, but was fun to get up and get moving 🙂
This post is actually for two different dates. The first date Tyler called a “Heather’s favorites date.” We started off the date with him giving me a massage. It was much needed after all the work we’ve been doing in our yard. To finish the night ate popcorn and watched a chick flick. I was having a hard time coming up with a good date idea last week so I stole Ty’s idea and we had a “Ty’s favorites date.” We played a video game of Ty’s choice, because it is not very often that I consent to play video games with Ty. In fact Tyler asked me the next day if I wanted to play a video game and I told him I was at my limit for the month. We made Ty’s favorite caramel popcorn that we’ve posted in a previous post. Finally we watched a movie of his choice. Totally simple dates, but we love to just spend time together it doesn’t really matter what we do 🙂
