Date Idea: Outdoor Theater


Mountain Theater
Originally uploaded by kimretta.
Summer is a great time of year for entertainment. One thing we really like doing is attending outdoor plays and concerts. If the weather is nice, it can make for a really nice, out of the box, date. If the weather is not so nice, it can be one of those thing you laugh about over the years.

We have attended several concerts and plays over the years including:
* A rock concert in the mountains
* The symphony playing as part of the 4th of July celebration
* Semi-professional plays presented in a mountain amphitheater
* Amateur plays in local parks
* Local bands playing in a plaza

Again this year there are lots of different events to choose from, with all sorts of price range. Many local events are free or inexpensive enough to bring the whole family. Others are more expensive and might be appropriate for a special occasion like an anniversary.

Some tips for attending outdoor events:
* Be prepared for changes in weather. The tempurature might start out hot and end fairly cool. A blanket, umbrella and jacket are always a good idea
* Bug repellent
* Some events allow lawn chairs, others do not. Find out in advance.
* Arrive early. Many outdoor events are first-come seating.
* Bring a deck of cards or other entertainment to pass the time while waiting for the event to begin

Step outside the box and enjoy some fine entertainment in the great outdoors. If you know of any inexpensive outdoor events that people might like to attend, add that information as a comment to this post.

Here in Brazil, I think the winter is a better time for entertainment. In the summer it's either beach or trying to stay in a cool place (that's my case) because it's way too hot in here!
And come on, you're a lovely addition to my cinnamon buns! :-)
Hugs!!!

Hey from BlogRocket! Great idea for a blog! I wish you much success with it - very cool concept!

My blogs are over at: Living Within Samsara
Samsara's Shakti
Recovering from Codependency

Relating to your blog, the codependency issues I know I suffered from...ability to be *controlled* and being a chameleon, etc...I think it's important for a person to recognize their own value before they do take on a life partner.

The successful marriages I see DO embrace your concepts and I think it's because both perople are whole when they come into the relationship.

Good blog and wanted to say Hi there!

My DH and I have been seriously in love since 1960, and we've been married since 1964. Much of what I've read on your blog have been ideas we've been doing quite instinctively.

I’d like to invite you to join our family friendly BLOG VILLAGE TopList. I think your blog would be a great addition.
