We did it.
We managed to do a completely free date, including parking. Can you believe it? We actually got free parking in Seattle?
Hubby's cousin had given us free tickets to the flight museum in Seattle and we forgot about them. They sat in Hubby's wallet for a long time, until recently, when he reminded me about them.
So, last weekend, I chose The Seattle Museum of Flight as my choice for our free date.
We headed out the door toward Seattle around 2:30 in the afternoon, since The Museum of Flight closes at 5pm on Saturdays.
Hubby made us hot cocoa (for the drive) with a combination of almond and coconut milk, which was creamy and perfect for a chilly November day.
It was a nice, relaxing drive on the way there. We tend to have the best conversations when our drives are longer than usual. (So, remember-just going for a drive can still be considered a worthwhile date!)
When we arrived, a spot was waiting for us in the front row. Score!
As we walked in, a family was leaving and a little boy around five years old was holding a miniature toy jet plane, zooming it around. It made me smile to see how happy he was playing with it.
"I used to have one of those when I was a kid," Hubby said.
This museum is huge. Walking in, a wave of energy and excitement filled the air. There's something about being surrounded by one of the most amazing inventions of humankind-the airplane, suspended from the soaring ceilings above.
Checking in was a breeze, we just handed over our tickets and put on our red paper wristbands. And then, we were off, with not a cent taken from our pockets. Score two!
