What Not to say/do on a date Valentine's Edition

Normally in these segments I would tell you about the awful horrendous bad dates that I've had the fork in the eye privilege of going out on. However, this time I'm going to tell you about one of the best dates I've ever went on. 
It took place at the Newport Aquarium. 
Now if you know anything about me you know that I love tropical fish and sea turtles so this place was right up my alley. Neither my date nor I had ever been to this particular aquarium so we were both really excited. We went on a weekday so it wasn't crowded at all. 
We got to walk around, holding hands all the while being surrounded by beautiful sea creatures. While we were there we got to see....
the diving show
The penguins swimming and walking around

and they even had alligators! When one of the alligators moved (which I didn't know was sitting there) I jumped about 3 feet in the air. I'm pretty for sure I left the boy with a permanent bruise on his hand from squeezing it so tight. 

I think what made the date one of my best was the fact that we could walk around together and just talk. We laughed and smiled and got to really enjoy each others company. After we left the aquarium we hit up some of the shops that surround it, including the giant Barnes & Noble.
It was and always will be one of my most memorable and fun dates ever.

That sounds like a WONDERFUL date. When my hubby and I went to the SD Zoo, I knew we were meant for each other when we spent 3 hours walking around and laughing at the animals.
