Relax this weekend by flying a kite in the beautiful outdoors with your honey.  It’s an inexpensive way to do something laid back while still being romantic.

Kites should be flown in an open, breezy area, making the beach the perfect location.  Find out if there are any kite clubs nearby.  Flying with other people will allow you as a couple to admire these embellishments that are said to have originated in China.  Don’t worry about your beginner abilities or keeping up with the more serious people around you; just have a good time.

You can buy a single-line kite for less than $10, or if you’re looking for a challenge, you can get a dual-line stunt kite for $20.  It’ll be fun to help one another make the tricky figure 8 shapes.

Once you’ve become tired of flying, set up an intimate picnic lunch in a shady area.  Quench your thirst with freshly squeezed lemonade and indulge in homemade sandwiches.  Afterwards, take a walk together and admire the beautiful scenery.

This fun and relaxing day with your other half will help you remind each other of how special your time is together.  Maybe you can even talk about your future.
