Kris’ Take: Just yesterday Laura and I went to a wonderful park that’s about 45 minutes away. It was a really fun time for the both of us. The day started out with a quick breakfast and then we were off. I know this idea might sound a little cliché, but it’s a great way to break up the monotony of everyday life. We walked around for quite a bit looking at some of the wildlife and we did a lot of talking. I think that’s probably my favorite part about the parks. They are normally such a quiet and tranquil place, and that makes for a great talk. After a while of walking around we drove to find a pavilion and I began grilling food. Laura liked watching me do this because she hasn’t seen many people grill using charcoal, so she enjoyed watching me stack the briquettes. I like cooking for Laura on grills because it’s not very hard but it looks impressive, and to be completely honest I’m no expert on a stove. It allows me to show that I have some cooking skills.
We brought a bit too much to eat and her and I are not fans of wasting food, so we decided to feed some of the local wildlife, but don’t tell the park rangers :-x. There were these two squirrels that were scampering around so I walked towards one slowly, put the sandwich down and slowly backed away. Then Laura and I watched it from a distance. It was adorable; he approached the sandwich and looked at it for a second. Then he picked it up and started nibbling at all of the bread. I suppose he didn’t notice the delicious barbequed pork in the middle. After watching the squirrels for a while, Laura wanted to do some shopping so we hit some of our malls and accomplished very little, but we did manage to find her mother some very charming candle holders that would go perfect on the fireplace mantle! Well, I hope you all have a wonderful day, and remember that even these simple dates can be quite fun. Oh, not to forget, Laura and I intended on flying a kite, but the wind had different plans: To take the day off!
Laura’s Take: The park was such a nice way to spend the day! I really enjoyed the nature walk most of all because it gave us a chance to chat. Plus is was so secluded from the rest of the park that it really felt like we were someplace else, like in a jungle. I wish we had gotten a chance to fly the kite, but I guess we should have checked the weather forecast first. Anyways, glad we got a chance to finally go to the park! And you were quite the cook if I do say so myself!
