    Love ’em! Thanks for sharing. I just posted on my site today something I learned from Aja to have consistent dates (at least twice per month). These free fun ideas can fill in the other 2 times each month and my wife and I should have enough ideas and plans to date weekly. :)

    Here’s an oldie but goodie; take some food out the cupboard and make some sandwches and go on a picnic. Another one is taking a bubble bath together.

    We do the photo booth idea all the time! Some of our funniest photos live on our iPhones.

    Now that we have a 7 week old baby I’d like to start taking evening walks to relax the baby before bedtime. It should be easier now that the weather is cooling down.
