    Oh man. Rent movies, then tell the kids "We're going to watch a movie downstairs" which they know means "so you be somewhere else!". We go for walks, go for drives, walk to a local restaurant and have a glass of wine and dinner, go to bed early with reading material that always gets interrupted, go out on the boat in the summer, anchor in a quiet bay and just hang out - can't wait for that! A few more weeks...

    We like to take weekends away about every month or so.

    Also a movie and dinner after to discuss it or just dinner to talk about everything!

    Mainly cooking and talking on weekends, or should I say I cook and he reads the paper and tells me about interesting clips.

    Because dh works nights, we don't get alot of time alone, but on his nights off, we either rent a movie or just chill out on the couch and watch TV after the boys go to bed. If it's nice enough weather we might sit on the porch after the boys go to bed. And, if we're super lucky, we'll get a sitter and go to dinner alone!!

    I guess since I posed the ? I should at least answer it too...lol.

    DH and I talk about everything!! He is my best friend and I cannot imagine keeping anything from him. Even when I TRY to keep something from him I can't...like if my sis tells me something about her hubby or whatever and she doesn't want me to tell anyone...I cannot help but tell him...man, I'm so bad.

    I like the fact that we have a relationship like that; I cannot imagine it any other way!

    Before kids, we use to brew beer together. It was a lot of fun and our thing to do together. Or we would go to a few wineries on a Saturday afternoon, then dinner somewhere. And we would go to car shows and dream about all the vintage cars we wanted to have someday. Sometimes we would go on hikes through a nearby State Forest.

    Now that we have 2 kids under 2, we would just be happy to eat a warm meal together again. Someday it will happen again, we know it.

    Before kids we did so much--but it was normally bar things. We played league volleyball and played in tournaments and met friends out all the time. We also subbed on a bowling league. Now it's very rare when it's just the two of us, and when it is, we go to the movies or out to dinner or shopping.
