Ryan Reynolds took girlfriend Blake Lively on an old-fashioned date in Connecticut Friday night, where the two held hands and shared ice cream out of the same cup.
The couple spent the evening walking hand in hand at the annual Ridgefield Downtown Holiday Stroll, in picturesque Ridgefield, where carolers roamed the streets, kids posed for pictures with Santa and couples took rides in a horse-drawn carriage.
After strolling around the holiday festival for a bit, Reynolds, 35, and Lively, 24, stopped into Deborah Ann's Sweet Shoppe, where they "tried a few samples of ice cream off of those little spoons," says an eyewitness at the ice cream parlor.
"They picked their own flavors, English Toffee and Chocolate Fudge Brownie, but put them in the same cup and shared it."
"They left holding hands," says the eyewitness, who further described them as "very nice. They just blended in. They seemed very happy together. They were very excited about the ice cream."
