Last night we decided to star gaze, something we always used to do back in Indiana. In Phoenix, it's a little bit more difficult to find any stars because of all the lights. Last night we jumped in the truck, put Tater in the back, and looked for a spot (not knowing where we were going to go). Trav managed to find a hidden, secluded, dirt area. To get up to the place we wanted, he drove the truck up the dirt hill and parked it in the "boondocks" (reminds you of a country song huh?).
This is where we got the blanket out, laid in the back of the truck, cuddled, and watched the stars. Little Tater was soooo excited, and of course, like always, he had to be right in between us, licking us both like we were a piece of meat. We even took a walk around, hoping we didn't encounter any snakes, but determined that the land was going to be used for a neighborhood that was never built probably because of the economy.
It was an amazing night, and much to our surprise, we were able to see many stars.We enjoyed every minute of it, until this wretched smell fell everywhere around us. This is when we decided to leave and go home, but that we would come back another night. :)
We went home and Trav cooked steaks and listened to music outside. We then put a movie from Netflix on and just relaxed the rest of the night. We do not have to go on somewhere big and fancy for date night, we can do something cheap and fun with what we have and love it.
What do you do for a fun date night?
