My boys are enrolled in an awesome free park program in our town. They just started going this week. It is three hours every day. My dh and I decided to take advantage of the free time and have a date. Usually that would mean going downtown for lunch, or maybe taking a bike ride. But lately we have been talking about canoes and how much fun they would be. I thought about how are dates usually revolve around eating or drinking and suggested that instead we could see about renting a canoe. We found a place nearby that rents them for $10 for two hours. We packed a picnic lunch, rented a canoe and paddled out to a park, had our lunch and rowed back. It was an hour total of canoeing. We had a ton of fun.
Unfortunately I didn't get my bike ride in yet. I should have gone this morning! My goal is 10 miles a day and I cannot let a canoe trip stand in my way. I am waiting for it to cool off a bit more and then I am off on my bike.
