Elevating our Valentine’s Day

Eric and I (literally) elevated our Valentine’s Day this year! I thought I’d share our experience since it was so fun ~ plus a few ideas for future dates that are much more exciting than our typical dinner and a movie. Although we love those dates too 🙂

With three little kids, our dates are far and few between. We wanted to make the most of our time when we do have a sitter (thank you Mom!). This has also inspired us to be a little more adventurous and make fun memories on our dates.

I was originally going to surprise Eric with this idea but had to cave! I was kind of afraid he wouldn’t get on the helicopter haha! He was 1,000 percent on board with the idea. Although we were both a little nervous beforehand, once we got there we felt totally safe and just excited.

I have lived in Chicago all my life and have never experienced the city like this. The views were incredible, breathtaking really.

I highly recommend Chicago Helicopter Experience if you live in Chicago or visiting. PS. they are having an awesome sale on tickets right now!

Here’s a few photos & video from our helicopter tour PLUS some date ideas for next time! Thank you Chicago Helicopter Experience for an amazing experience and wonderful video!

Date Ideas on our list!

  • Go indoor sky diving – I’m too nervous for the real thing so this will have to do!)
  • Take a hot air balloon ride – this has been on my wish list forever! Hint hint!
  • Go Skating – either ice skating or roller skating
  • Tour a local brewery or winery
  • Sign up for a dance class – we’ll see if I could ever convince Eric!
  • Parasail (this will have to wait until vacation!
  • Go Horseback riding
  • Hike a mountain
  • Sign up for a cooking class (vs going to dinner)

Since we aren’t on the Bachelor, I’m sure these will take years to check off our bucket list!

But I’m glad I have this list now to reference back to.

Thank you again to Chicago Helicopter Experience for our tour ~ we can’t wait to go back!
