Family Date Nights

Going around Facebook this summer is the idea that you only get 18 summers with your kids before they head off to their own lives as adults. The thought is to cherish this time and be present during this time with them.

This has me thinking about focused family time. We have busy, busy lives and it can be hard to get away for extended vacation time in the summer. My husband and I have been making time for lunch dates with just us so we decided it is time to implement family date night too. My logic is that evenings are easier to make happen, not too expensive and we can make them happen more often. So I'm gathering ideas. They need to be fairly local and friendly for a 3 year old. 

Here is my list so far:
Movie night - at the theatre 
Mini Golf
Backyard camp out
Water Park
Museum/Science place
Fairy tale town
County or State Fair

What do you think? What should I add to our list?
