AdviceFilter: What life experiences (or fun things) should my partner and I make time for, before having a baby?

I have recently turned 35 and am in a relatively new, but very solid and loving relationship (he's 30) where we both want kids and have talked openly about what that means for our timeline as a couple. I don't want to wait too long, given my age, probably a year and a half at most. He fully respects that and is happy to get serious about being parents as soon as I'm ready.
At the same time, we've been together just a little less than a year, and so I also want to take time to enjoy us as a couple and do fun things that become difficult/impossible when kids enter the picture.
What experiences should we make time for in the next year or so, as we deepen our relationship and enjoy time together before we get serious about baby-making?
