The perfect solution for a 2 hour getaway for new parents and couples with older children.
As a new parent I realized early on, that one on one time with my spouse is extremely important to keep the romance in our stress out so I began searching online for an activity to do as a couple one day a week. He is a sports guy, and I am a dancer, both activities were too time consuming for our 2 or 3 hour babysitting limits.
After searching through the Leisure guide and facebook for an activity that was affordable, fun, new, and started after 6:00pm, and ended around 7:30pm or 8:00pm during the week and weekends, the options looked limited, After a long day of work and baby care I wanted to make sure I came home sober with energy left to care for our child.
Most importantly, we wanted to save money and put our hard earned dollars into savings for our son. So what was the solution?
We both have an interest in art, so art classes looked like a great fit. Simply put, art classes are inexpensive in 6 sessions or more, and we are sharing a skill that we can pass onto our son when he is older by doing art with him. Finding art classes that start in the 6:30pm-8:30pm time range can be tricky, so when my son was old enough I began teaching beginner art classes in the evenings for adults.
If you are interested in attending, I would love to have you! To learn more:
