Spring Date with my Husband – Spring Date Idea

I’m shameful to admit Jason and I very rarely go on any dates.  Or maybe we do and it just doesn’t seem like it since it’s always just us anyway?  With no kids, except Roxy, I imagine that our dates are much different from those with kids.  Being just us, most often if we are going out, we’d much rather go out with others than just us.

With that being said, we do enjoy something in the Spring that will qualify as a date in my eyes.  With our area experiencing what seems to be a very early Spring, those ideas for spring date ideas are just floating in my head and today I’ll bring you my number one choice.

Spring Date Idea


What makes hiking great is that it doesn’t take any extra money, just getting out there and doing it.  Yes, on some trails you’ll need to pay a small daily fee or a yearly fee to enjoy them, but really that is no biggie comparing other avenues of dating.

Now I must admit that I never used to like hiking, but since moving to Washington, I have grown a deep love for it.

We don’t do it as often as we should, but when we do it’s so much fun.  Not only are you spending the time together to do something kind of challenging.  You get out there enjoying nature and each other.  


Spring is the perfect time for hiking.  The beautiful world of nature is awakening after take a sleep during the winter and it’s all coming alive.  It’s just beautiful out there.  Not to mention it isn’t so hot that it’s uncomfortable like it can be in the summer.  

For our 10 year anniversary, we hiked Beacon Rock (which is located along the Columbia River on the Washington side) and a couple little trails around it.  It was wonderful.  


So next time you are searching for a date idea, why not try some hiking.  There are all levels of trails out there whether you are a beginner or advance.  There is a level for you and your date! Check out those walking/hiking trails near you and get out there and do it!

    really pretty pictures. We don’t have a lot of trails here we definitely don’t have any with the pretty views you have. But what a great date idea.

    • Thanks April πŸ™‚ You’d be surprised once you start searching what you could find for different trails. I think. lol I know I was once I really started searching.

    we should try and hike angel falls ( I think that’s what it’s called ) this summer, it will have to be on a hot day since you hike through the water.

  • I’ve always enjoyed short hikes (2-3 miles), but that’s about as far as I go. I’ve heard your area is gorgeous!

    • Thanks Beth – and that used to be my normal and probably will be again since we haven’t gone for so long. And yes this area is beautiful.

  • I’m excited to share this with my readers!!!

  • I love hiking! And yes, Washington is so beautiful!!! My mother in law lives there. I would seriously consider moving but I really really REALLY don’t like the snow. What a neat date idea, and I am glad you guys got a date!

    • It actually very rarely snows on the west side of washington. It’s rare we get any snow, especially any snow that sticks. it’s like an event when it does.

      • Oh I see. My MIL lives in the northeast area of WA and they get quite a bit of snow each winter.

        • yes. That area gets lots of snow. Its funny how the western and eastern side of the state are so different weather wise mostly just in the winter. I used to live in Northern Idaho (which is next door to Eastern Washington) and we’d get dumped on each winter. I actually kind of miss it at times.

  • I love hiking too, it is one of our favorite things to do together (the hubs and I). We like to do long hikes and make a day of it heh

    • Thanks Heather! We tend to do the same when we get off our butt’s to go do it. It’s so fun. Now I just need a fancy picnic basket to take with us. πŸ˜‰

  • Hiking is a great spring date! We have 2 kid, so we consider it a date when we get to go to the store by ourselves, LOL! Thanks for sharing this at the #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup!

    • Right? our idea is way different when it’s just us to those that have kids.
