Summer is my favorite season! With the warm weather life seems to open up again. The possibilities grow as we are able to get outside, move, and soak up the sun.
In this favorite season of mine, I’ve also noticed favorite dates play on repeat. Here are the Summer Dates we come back to time and time again.
Ice Cream Dates
Ice cream is simply delicious and especially refreshing on a warm day. Repeated nearly weekly, Tappy and I will sit down and enjoy some icecream together.
This is Summer’s version of a “coffee date” for us. It gives us a treat while we unwind, share dreams, and update each other on our week. But there are some ways you can spice up your ice cream dates! Try to…
- Make Homemade Ice Cream
- Make Sundaes or Root Beer Floats at Home
- Try a New Ice Cream Parlor
- Order Something Different off the Menu
Unwind from work, eat supper, and then right before Dusk put on your walking shoes. The sunset not only offers a lovely backdrop for a romantic walk, but it also offers a break in the day’s heat.
Walks are great, because men enjoy side-by-side activities. As you move and the blood gets flowing, your brain starts moving too. Tappy can’t deny that he talks more on walks than sitting down at a table. There is just something about moving together! Plus it’s healthy!
- Walk Your Favorite Neighborhood
- Walk the Trails at your Local Park
- Visit a Botanical Garden or Zoo
We love grilling so much, that we have done it in the rain and snow before… But let’s face it, it works much better in the summer! Our favorite thing to grill is Kabobs. Although, we won’t turn down a BBQ hamsteak, corn on the cob, burgers, or sausages either!
Keep your partner company while they make dinner, eat it outside on paper plates, and enjoy the relaxing nature of it all.
- Try a new Grill Recipe (Kabobs, Grilled Pizza?)
- Invite friends over for a cookout
- Use this marinade recipe we love!
- Make it a Picnic
Visit the Lake
Tappy and I love to take out the family boat. Being on the lake reminds me of God’s hand in all of creation. I admire His work, and think about the blessing He has given us to enjoy it in such neat ways. Who thought of being pulled by a rope attached to a speed boat just to skim the surface of the water on sticks?! I’m pretty sure God gave man that idea.
- Swim in the Lake
- Lay on the Beach
- Go Boating, Tubing, Skiing
- Kayak or Canoe
