Valentine's Day Weekend

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! We were so busy this weekend I'm not sure where the time went, but it was fun!

Friday night Travis kept the kiddos so I got to have a little time out with the girls and we went to watch Valentine's Day and to eat at the new mexican place in BG. (It was kind of funny though because the name of the place is Riviera Bar and Grill and it just showed up on our checking acct as riviera bar after I used my debit card, so Travis asked me, "Uh just what did you guys do Friday?" )
I assured him we didn't get sloshed at some bar, we just ate chips and salsa!

Saturday I worked and then we went to Noah's ballgame at Kyrock and then we visited with Mom and Dad for a while. We had church Saturday night and Sunday. We got up Sunday morning and gave the kids their Valentine's treats (chocolate from Peanut Free Planet and some Valentine's Day books) and then after church Travis arranged for his Mom and Dad to keep the kiddos so we could have a date. (Which we rarely ever get to do!) We went to watch Dear John (which I liked and Travis tolerated) and then we ate at Longhorn. It was a great day! It's funny how our Valentine's Day festivities have evolved as the kids came along. I'm sure next year it will be even a little harder to orchestrate than this year!!!

On a side note (I don't THINK Travis will kill me for posting this). Every single year for the past 15 years Travis has written me a long letter and folded it and put it in my Valentine's Day card. He thinks he's no good at writing, but his letter makes me cry every single year. I look forward to these letters more than any gift he could ever buy me!

I also overheard a funny conversation while getting ready for church on Sunday. It was one of those Daddy to son talks and I could hear Travis saying, "Now Noah when you get bigger you'll learn that Valentine's Day is mostly about girls, and they like flowers and stuff." That's right Daddy, teach him early! Roses and love letters are sure ways to a girls heart!

So sweet. I do good to just get a card. At least he has some bit of an excuse since he works from 7a to 1am. Not much time to venture out. Good chatting with ya today! I can't wait to see the photos!

You DID have a busy weekend! I'm so jealous that you got to see two movies in one weekend!

Sorry every time we've talked on the phone lately it's been chaos in the background at my house! Maybe if I call you in the middle of the night we could talk in peace and quiet!
