Paint 'n Pour

Last Saturday, Greg and I switched up our weekend plans and attended a painting class at the local, independently-owned Paint 'n Pour.  The canvas, brushes and paints were provided, while adult beverages were BYOB. Rich, the male counterpart of the married couple that owns Paint 'n Pour, walked us through the lifeguard station painting step-by-step, but allowed the class freedom to make our paintings unique. Greg & I hadn't painted in years (middle school rings a bell), but after a couple drinks the creativity started flowing. We tried to not peek at each others painting until the finished product was complete, and I love how different they turned out! We had such a fun afternoon and walked away with two one-of-kind paintings that not only remind us of California, but also of the beach in our hometown! I can't wait to hang both of them up in our bedroom! There are many locations similar to this concept that are great for a date or girls night - check it out in your area! 

some other summer day date ideas:
•ride bikes on the beach and finish the afternoon with fish tacos•
•pack a picnic in the park complete with a basket full of finger-foods & rosé•
•check out your favorite band in concert - bonus points for an outdoor venue•
