Spring Flings

Spring is a time for new beginnings. Every year you vow to make more time for your spouse and the warmer weather of Spring is beckoning you to keep your promise. Not sure what to do beyond dinner and a movie? You will find something for every couple in this list of springtime activities.


Quick Escapes & Excursions

Sometimes parents need a little time away from it all; just a break from work, kids, the home. It’s not always easy, however, to take a vacation – even for a couple of days. But if you want to have time for just the two of you for one night, or one day, make a plan, call a baby-sitter and do something for yourselves.



Creative Date Night Ideas

You started week one with dinner, only to talk about vet bills and braces. Next week was a movie, but you couldn’t agree on which flick to see. Running out of ideas, your commitment slipped in week three and you rented a movie after putting the kids to bed. It didn’t take long for date night to become just another boring chore.


Parents Need Time As a Couple

After weeks of one parent walking a newborn and the other comforting a teething toddler every night, you and your partner have finally stolen a romantic hour. You lie there basking in the afterglow, enjoying the silence and being alone together. You’re about to drift off to a restful and satisfying sleep, when your door bursts open, and a panicked two-year old wails, "Mommy, I gonna throw up."
