We have arrived at the final letters of the alphabet, and therefore, the final alphabet date nights/days! I’m sure I’ll do this again at some point, or change it up – Alphabet Family Fun Days?! X and Y took place in Calgary, and Z took place in New York, which is fitting with the journey these alphabet dates have taken between YYC and NYC, between Pre-Covid and during Covid, between Pre-Pregnancy and Post-Baby! If you haven’t read the other date ideas yet, feel free to head back and read about A to D, E to H, I to L, M to P, Q to T, and U to W.
A Reminder of How Alphabet Date Night Works:
- We schedule in date night.
- When it’s my turn to plan, I figure out which letter of the alphabet I’m on. Date 1 starts with A, Date 2 Starts with B, etc.
- I plan 1-3 activities that all start with that letter. It usually ends up being 2 activities – one that’s physical and one that’s food related.
- We go enjoy the date!!
“X” Date Night
X was one of the hardest letters, so I felt I could use that as an eXcuse, and make whatever I wanted for dinner, which ended up being chicken fajitas. Then, we got some eXercise, and eXplored Calgary, but walking to XO Ice Cream. I’d say we did pretty good for that tricky letter, wouldn’t you?! X date night was eXercise & eXplore & XO Ice Cream!
