What's a good date night idea when its hot and you dont have alot of money?

My hubby and I are getting a few hrs of alone time while the kids go to the movies with their friends tonight. We are trying to think of something to do to make it a date night. We are eating dinner at home before we drop the ids off at their friends. We are trying to not spend alot of money since we are giving each of the kids money for their movie and goodies. Any ideas ladies? p.s. its pretty hot out today.

  • Do you live near a beach? It's always nice to walk the beach. Maybe pack dessert and have a little picnic right there on the beach. If you don't live on the beach a nice walk is still always fun.

  • bowling
    skating
    drive-in movies
    or just get a movie from the redbox and have a night in
    If you do that then you can grill out back

  • Maybe find a lake & go swimming. Maybe bring a food basket & some beers or something cool to sip on. My DH & i like to play games when we're alone. We'll have a cocktale & get nuts w/ some yahtzee, backgammon or cards. You could also rent a porn...lol, some DH's would love that!

  • for dates my hubby and I usually give our son an easy dinner, put him to bed early, rent a movie then I make a nice dinner, like steaks or a fancy pasta and turn the lights down low, sit on the floor and eat on the coffee table while watching our movie. even though we didnt get to go anywhere its nice to sit in a "romantic atmosphere" alone, and not be bothered with waiters, or a bill. So try something like that maybe. or if you only have just the 2+ hours of a movie I dont know that theres much to do other than hop in a cool shower together and see where that takes you! Have Fun!

  • We dont live near a beach and we do movie night every fri and family game night wed or thursdays. We wanted to do something a little different. Dessert picnic or ice cream cones and a walk would be nice. We dont have any cute coffee shops around. Maybe we can just share a large sundae or something and then window shop.

  • We play tennis when we have the time, but when it's really hot, that's just impossible!!! Do you live near any lake or river? Hubby and I like to get a snack (ice cream, kettle corn, something like that) and just go sit by the river and talk.

  • We always like going bowling. It's fairly inexpensive and just a blast.

  • I would find a sitter rent a good movie, bottle of wine and have our own private picnic in the living room by candle light.
