some things we do:

- play board games and cards
- we have a tv date every single night on the couch, i lay on hubby and he rubs my feet
- picnic dates
- feeding ducks at the lake
- sitting on the porch drinking coffee watching the moon or the sunrise
- hubby always takes me outside when it starts to rain just to kiss me
- take the trash out together (it is about 1/2 a block to our bin)
- go on a walk
- lay in bed while we take turns reading out loud from a book or magazine
- talk about our dream house
- talk about what we want to do when we are older and retired...where we want to live, etc.
- get out the kids paints and paint together in candlelight
- candlelight dessert or coffee after the kids are in bed
- hubby might draw me a bath and wash my back and give me a neck massage while we chat about whatever
- truth or dare
- pillow fights
- breakfast in bed
- well...sex
- water fights
- we play some computer games together
- go to a secondhand bookstore to just look around
- cook together
- go to the gym together (ours is free)
- send each other text messages all day long
- he plays guitar, i write lyrics and sing
- find local concerts and park in the parking lot to listen if we like the band but don't want to shell the bucks out for the tickets


i am sure there is a ton more, hubby and are inseparable still after 12 1/2 years of marriage and being together since we were 12. outside of him going to work we are always glued to each other and can't stand it if we are apart for more than an hour. bad huh lol

I like the one about cleaning together

All your ideas have inspired me to think about this again. Here's a list of what we have or what I would like to do:

Afterwards (the cleaning), take a shower together.
Walk the dogs and enjoy them being so enthusiastic.
Write down your romantic ideas for an imaginary vacation and read it to each other.
Dress up and dance in the living room, if you are in the mood, do a strip tease.
Cuddletime.
Sit on the front porch and talk about the day while the sun sets.
Play frisbee (not so sure I want to do that in the nude).
Play tennis (who cares if your'e any good)
Ride bikes to a local outdoor cafe and sit outside sipping your water (or if you are in the mood to splurge, buy a coffee)
Go window shopping at night (all the stores a closed so no fear of spending money, plus it quieter).
I'll have to keep thinking....this is a damn short list.

Tell an untold story about your childhood or family history to each other. I love listening to my husband and I think he likes mine too. Also we go to the hills and hike around (gas) or watch a movie together at home that we already own.

Some of these things have already been said, but they are fun and help you connect better none the less.

Walking the dog together.

Hide and Seek with or with out the kids. (Can be inside or out, although evening outside in the backyard is much more fun and your neighbors will never know how nuts you are J/K)

Another variation is to play hide and seek or Tag (adults only) inside with blindfolds on.

Make up silly rules and silly consequences if the rules are broken.

Look up a new recipe in a cookbook or online and cook it together.

Feed each other food while cooking and smear it on your spouses face.

Have a food fight while cooking dinner.

Clean up the mess from the food fight together.

Stage a pillow fight in the living room during the commercials of your fav show.

Take a shower together (Can lead to more adult fun later)

Talk about nonsense or take turns telling each other jokes.

Wrestle with your kids together on the floor.

Play a board game but make up your own rules for the game as you play.

Take turns reading a book (that you both are interested in) to each other.

Turn on your favorite song and dance with your spouse. (It's okay if you don't know how, you can always close the curtains)

Sing a love song to your spouse. (Sometimes a drink beforehand might improve singing skills)

Put on a silly hat and dance with your spouse.

Play a video game together and and set up silly rules for the other person to do if they win/lose.

This may not be for everyone, but my hubby and I will jump out and randomly scare each other every now and then. We both get a kick out of it 'cuz we are just big kids lol.

Go to the local park and walk around. (With or without kids/dog)

Race bikes around the neighborhood or park.

Come home and cuddle together. It is always fun and since it doesn't cost anything, it can be done as often as you wish.

Love like you just met and live like you are going to die tommorow. Life is a gift and should be cherished, not ignored.

Be blessed.

1) Not so free, but car rides
2) Walks, more free
3) Play a good coop video game
4) Practically molest our cats
5) I like a good cup of coffee, with some munchies
6) Get drunk off wine, not free, but it can be preeeeeetty cheap
7) Wrestle for something ridiculous
8) We're learning to play chess
9) Sing over-passionately in the car, to Phil Collins

I also really liked some of your guy's ideas -

-Learn an instrument together, I play guitar, but I would love to learn the cello, and my wife says she would love to learn it with me, we could do some cool duets ^_^.

Anything without the kids would be great. Thats all I need. I could clean the house if I had no kids and enjoy myself.

@swedish

Lol, I simply meant that we pamper our cats too much.

Tyr, the youngest, loves to cuddle with us while we're getting ready to go to sleep, and has certainly become spoiled from our excessive petting and belly rubbing.
