Date Night

Over the past year, Darrell and I have gone on a weekly date night. We have had lots of fun and delight in knowing the kids are home safe with our sitter , Ruthie !

We've gone on hikes, fancy dinners, red-neck places to eat, walked at the mall during the winter, shopped, met with friends, met with family, taken Michaela or Jess our to dinner...even went gun shopping! Lately, we have been investing in our horses and have gone to our horse instructors place for some training and riding lessons.  We have enjoyed encouraging each other as we build our confidence.

Last night we rode on Hercules! The other horse we were scheduled for coliced and had to be trailered to help it ...which was successful! A good ending to that story!

Here are some pictures :)

  1. We have been doing weekly date nights for a few months now and it's amazing how helpful that is for strengthening our marriage. (And to get me through those really tough weeks, it's something fun to anticipate.)

    You're right, it doesn't matter what you do with that time together, just that you do it together. But horse-riding lessons seem like they'd be a lot of fun to do together for sure.
