Our fun Valentine's Day...

I know I say it a lot but I do love being able to go back and read about past Valentine Day's and even seeing pictures too! Yesterday was a great family day! This is the first year Wyatt has even mentioned or really gotten into Valentine's Day so we "went with it" and made the day special. You can read about past Valentine's Day celebrations here: 2010 2011 2012#1 2012#2 2013#1 2013#2 2013#3 and read on for yesterday's fun day...

The kids woke pretty early so we just had breakfast at home. Mark and I thought about taking the kids to Krispie Kreme but it just didn't work out. Mark made eggs and english muffins instead. ;) After breakfast we all got ready and headed out to run a few errands. We made a quick stop for cake pops and coffee along the way.

I snapped a quick photo of Sis before loading the car because she thinks this is just part of her daily routine. (I can't say that I mind) I didn't get one of Buddy as he doesn't ever feel the need to stop and stand still plus we all know how he feels about smiling. Ha!

We had lunch at Chick--fil-a and LOVED it. The kids love eating there so it makes it easier to get them a meal when I know it's going to be eaten. ;) (We had a free kids meal and a free cookie coupon so that was a WIN for us!)

After errands and lunch we came back home for a little rest time. Ya, I didn't say naps because the only person that had a little siesta was Mark. LOL! Sloane had taken a cat nap in the car so she wasn't having a real nap at home and well, Wyatt doesn't nap so...what else is there to do but get out the glitter. I am pretty sure I had lost my mind. I think we crafted every day this week so I had to get creative. They loved the glitter and it wasn't actually too bad.

The kids continued to play together. They have been so sweet to each other this week...for the most part. We haven't been watching t.v. during the day and I don't think they have missed it a bit. It's been so awesome to watch the games and toys they have been playing.

The weather was a bit crazy as the day progressed so late afternoon I ran to the grocery and grabbed a few items and stuff for dinner. We enjoyed a candlelit dinner together as a family. ;) Mark and I gave the kids a few fun little gifts and we enjoyed chocolate fondue together for dessert.

The kids went to bed at normal 7:30-8pm and Mark and I were able to enjoy a wonderful evening on the couch. What a great Valentine's Day 2014 we had!! 


  1. That fondue set looks so fun and yummy! CFA is the only place my kids will eat, I don't blame them! Lol sounds like a fun day full of the ones you love, those are the best days!! Have a good weekend :)

  2. I haven't been to CFA in forever, I need to make a run. me some chocolate fondue. I also need to get one. :D Looks like a fun day. :)
