What’s even more fun than hiking with kids? Hiking WITHOUT KIDS!!
My husband and I love to get out and explore when we get a minute to ourselves. Sometimes it’s long weekends away on really intense hiking adventures.
Or it’s just a walk up the canyon in the evening while the babysitter deals with bedtime. Being outside, breathing in the fresh air of the mountains is so good for a relationship I think. As we walk we talk about our kids, what’s stressing us out or what’s happening at work. Don’t get me wrong, dinner and a movie is awesome and usually what I feel like doing on our date nights. But when we don’t do that and get out together and talk I’m always so glad we did.
(Also, try it on a clear night with a full moon and no headlamps. It’s just kinda fun!)
