Do you know a great babysitter? Call her up and hire her to watch the kids while you and your significant, head out for a date night with your significant other. Here are several fun and inexpensive ideas for you to try.
Traditional Fall Dates
These date nights aren’t anything new, but they are fun.
- Go to a pumkin farm. Choose some pumpkins together and then carve them.

Creative Fall Dates
See how creative you can be with these fun dates.
- If you’re lucky enough to have foliage that changes colors in the fall, drive around your area and check out all the changing colors. Take selfies near some of the great views.
- Take some blankets and pillows to lay out and watch the stars. If you can, make a campfire.
- Go for a car ride as the passenger gives directions by calling out left, right, or forward whenever you come to a stop. See where you end up. It would be a nice surprise to end up at Lynch Chevrolet in Mukwonago to do some car shopping.

Send the Kids to the Grandparents for the Weekend
