One of the dates we loved when our kids were little was to bundle them up in their car seats and drive around until they fell asleep. Once they were good and knocked out, we would pull in to our local drive in theatre and watch a real live grown-up movie.
Obviously, this works best if you have kids who are sound sleepers.
Another cost-cutting advantage to this date besides saving on babysitters is that your car acts as a giant purse. You can smuggle in as many snacks as you like – guilt free.
