Top 8 Summer Date Ideas

Because you never know what the summer holds.

Everyone has that one person they want to spend the most time with: their crush, their significant other, or maybe just someone you have a lot of fun with. Whichever person you choose to spend time with this summer, you guys probably need some help deciding what would be super fun and make for a great day. Here are some of my top picks for Summer Dates:

1. Picnics

What better "outdoor dinner" is there other than a picnic? Picnics seem a bit cliche;however, sharing a picnic with someone you enjoy being around really could be a great experience. I mean who doesn't love the sun hitting their skin while they have a big sandwich in their hand?

2. Trips to the Lake

One of my favorite places to be at is at the lake. A day on the lake just gives you a good feeling. A feeling that you can't get from a day at the pool or even on the beach. Being at the lake with you significant other, well it can't get much better than that.

3. Go to a Drive-In Movie

Drive-in movie theaters remind me of my childhood. My family and I used to go to the local Drive-in theater and watch our favorite features. Going to the Drive-in is different from going to the movie theater because you're outside under the stars watch a flick with one of your favorite people in the world.

4. Take a Trip to the Baseball Game

Going to a baseball game is always a great date idea, because baseball games are fun whether your team wins or loses. If you do go to the game, you have to take a picture together. If you don't take a picture together did you actually even go?

5. Fishing

Who doesn't love to get their feet in the water, grab a fishing pole, and catch a huge bass? Fishing is a great date idea because you can spend a lot of time together, and you guys can talk as you fish. It's also fun to have a little friendly competition.

6. Kayaking

"Couple who workout together stay together" and kayaking is quite the workout. Kayaking can be lots of fun because you can be out in the middle of a lake or ocean and nothing be around you except the one person you want to be there with you. Kayaking also opens the door to observe the beautiful scenery around you.

7. Go on a Hike

Hiking is a great way to just get outdoors and explore. Even though the hike itself might be difficult the ending product is worth it. The view will be outstanding, but sharing the view with your date is extraordinary.

8. Outdoor Concerts

Everyone loves a good concert, but during the summer time when the sun goes down the party gets started up. Outdoor concerts can be super exciting, and what better person to spend it with than your crush?

Don't let this summer fly by without spending time with your crush, and going on great dates with them that only the summer time can provide. Live for this summer, because you never know what next summer will hold.

Cole And Sav LaBrant Give Me Hope That Our Generation Isn't Defined By Hookup Culture

Let's make "dating" a trend again.

In case you haven't heard, Savannah and Cole's relationship is literally #goals.

From how they met to the way they kept Jesus in the center of everything they did, their relationship shows us that not all guys (and girls) just want to "hook up" or have a one night stand.

Being in college, it can be very hard to distance yourself from hookup culture because almost everyone participates in it in some way. This can mean meeting a random guy at a frat party and then going home with him that night, or it can mean sending a "You up?" text at 2 in the morning with only one intention in mind.

We, as a generation, don't date anymore.

A boy doesn't ask a girl (in person) to go to dinner and a movie anymore. If they are to do it, it's done over text and is totally impersonal. If a boy picks up a girl from their house, they honk the car horn instead of ring the doorbell.

But, some people still follow these few simple rules of dating. Some men choose to look nice for a date, bring the girl flowers, and only has the intention of getting to know the girl better, instead of only wanting to have sex with her by the end of the night.

So, boys, take the hint from Cole LaBrant.

Pursue that girl (or guy), even if she lives on the other side of the country. Put the relationship into God's hands, and He will guide you in the right direction.

The Bible also tells us to stay pure in our relationships until marriage.

For many, it can be very hard to keep this commitment to purity because everyone around us is saying to do the exact opposite.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 says, "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins inside their own body. Do you not know your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies."

This verse does not condemn us for what we have done in the past. If you've had sex in the past, know that it is okay.

Even if you knew Jesus at the time, know that it is okay, because we serve a God of forgiveness and love. He knows that we are not perfect humans and that we are bound to mess up from time to time. So, do not judge yourself or others for what you have done in the past. The only thing you can do is to move forward with your eyes on Jesus.

Cole and Savannah have been very open about the ups and downs of their relationship on their YouTube channel, and also in their new book. They realize their relationship isn't perfect, and it gives us hope that our relationships don't need to be picture perfect either. If you slip up in your relationship, talk through it in open honesty, and move forward.

There Is More To Cole & Sav LaBrant Than Their Social Media Highlight Reel

A perfect social media feed doesn't equal a perfect life.

When you see Cole and Savannah LaBrant you likely focus on their to-die-for relationship, their beautiful daughter, Everleigh, and their blessing on the way.

Maybe you also see their success with social media as a career and their sweet Cali life. When we're on the outside looking in it might seem as if they have a perfect life. But, that isn't necessarily the truth.

There is more to them than the highlight reel that we see on our screens.

Now, I'm not saying that they don't have a great life.

They are living the life that God has planned and prepared them for and it is so beautiful to watch. It wasn't always this way for them though. There was a long path to get to the place where they are now and it wasn't a walk in the park. I feel like it's so easy for us to look past people who are famous or successful and write them off as perfect human beings who have no problems.

We forget that these people have stories too, and their stories matter.

There is more to the person than the fame and success and the likes and followers and the subscribers and shares and so on.

Savannah and Cole have a wonderful, God-centered, loving relationship, but Savannah hasn't always had that great of a relationship with men. As a child, she witnessed her mother and father divorce. In high school, she had her heart broken and was mistreated by boyfriends and she became a young, single mother in college.

Cole is a man of God and grew up in church but went through a period of time when he watched his mother struggle with her faith and that can be difficult and confusing to deal with.

They long-distance dated, both on opposite sides of the country, for months before they were able to be close enough to see each other every day. And these are just tidbits of a lifelong story that we don't see on the media, but they still matter.

In their new book, Cole and Savannah open up about their lives before and after their relationship, the good and the bad.

They also tell about their totally crazy first encounter and how their relationship came to be. It's so raw and real and you really get to know them deeper than what we know from their social media profiles, that's what I really like about it.

The success and the fame, yeah sure that is a big part of their life, but if you take the time to get to know their story you see that there is so much more to who they are and what they do.
