Adventure Date Night!

My girlfriend Becky did such a FAB job with blogging our group adventure date night that I couldn't resist using her blog post! The video footage was the prefect idea! I would have completely forgotten! She made some super-duper cute photo edits using GREAT website. I highly recommend it. 
First things first regarding these date nights...the invite!! I oh-so-sneakily placed Aaron's invitation next to his bathroom sink the night before our date. The following morning was my day off work... so I decided the morning surprise of finding this lovely invitation for an evening full of adventures would top a 6am hand delivery from the not-so-hott-in-the-morning wife ;-) 
I knew he would be filled with anticipation all day at school!
Take it away Becky!

We had such a blast Valentine's Day weekend with these two fun loving couples! The clever cutie pie, Janene suggested we take our hubbys out on an adventurous date. With the help of, we got in touch with our inner cupids to create an unforgettable date night.
FIRST, we met up at the Crossley Manor, and each boy was given a clue about a restaurant. Aaron and Todd had poems. And Brian had pictures (since he can't read).
They are so confused!
Ding! Ding! Ding! They figured it out.

Once they figured out the restaurant clues, the boys got to decide which one they wanted to go eat at. They chose Cafe Del Rio, which led us to our NEXT adventure... The car ride.
(Oh. My. Isn't he gorgeous?! <3 The driver's wife)
Car Tasks: Everyone had to draw a task out of the envelope.
One task was for everyone to jump out of the car at a red light and start dancing. This was awesome!
I love how Emily is having a fabulous time shaking her preggo belly! She is too cute!
My car task:
To hold up this sign at the car behind us. An old grandpa was squinting to read it. Once he did, he gave me a thumbs up. I'm glad he chose that finger.

Janene's car task was to reenact an engagement proposal. And here we have Aaron proposing. We got a couple of car honks out of this!
We laughed our little booties off, and drove off quickly before anyone realized that it was hoax!
Have you ever been shot by one of Cupid's arrows? 
Have you ever pretended to BE Cupid?
This was Brian's task. And it was certainly a Laugh Out Loud moment!!
Now at the restaurant we each had to draw a different task to do, as well. 
The restaurant tasks were confidential. Since none of us knew who had what task, it made things interesting bu wondering why someone is saying random things. For example, one task was to mention MC Hammer at least 3 times during dinner. It was too funny! Brian's task was to ask the waitor what was the closest drink they had to Love Potion #9. Our waitor was a complete DUD. He disappeared after Brian asked that. We think that scared him off. Oh, well. We still had great time.
The girlies! I heart these two.
Note: Brian's horseback riding skill was not an official restaurant task. However, it was HILARIOUS, and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!
A door my size! Whoop! Whoop!
After dinner, the boys got to choose what activity they wanted to do next. They chose to go back to the Crossley Manor for games and ice cream sundaes!
Great choice boys... This was such a fun date night! has some great ideas. We look forward to more good times with our hubbys and friends!
We hope you had an amazing Valentines in celebrating your love!
Yours truly, Me
