Date Night

In the past year, Darrell and I have been able to take a date night almost every Thursday. This is the first time in 25 years that we have been able to do some thing like this...

We have gone on walks, hiking, lots of shopping especially in the winter months here in NH, we've been joined by Darrell's sister and her husband, his younger sister and his mom, our older daughters, and we have gone horseback riding. All this usually includes some kind of yummy food which has been as simple as a salad or out to some of our favorites to include Texas Road House, Olive Garden or an authentic German restaurant.

All that to say that tonight, was our first ever driving lesson for me to learn to drive our van with our new horse trailer! We bought it this past winter and are super excited because it holds 3 of our horses but even better--it has a large tack room in it as well as a chuck wagon on it! Since we sold the pop up, we have loaded all of the camping equipment into the tack room shelves or chuck wagon and have plenty of room for chairs, tents and dining canopy!

We started by driving around town, headed to the local high school to practice backing up with some limited success. We then hauled it to dinner...a little Mexican place we love. We then went over to Walmart to grab a few things and then out for an ice cream cone. It was a different kind of night but fun because my hubby and I were together!


  1. That is quite a rig when it's all together! Good job learning to maneuver and drive it! Fun times together. I know if it were me, there'd be many good laughs during an evening like that. :)

  2. Thanks R....the driving is fine but the backing up is still kind of iffy;)
