My Sweet Valentine's Day

I had a great Valentine's day! Adam got me a tulip plant with 3 bulbs so I can seperate them later and replant. I can have tulips now every valentine's day. And me had the kids sign a card for me. I think it is the first card I have ever "gotten" from the kids, so that was super nice and I will be keeping that! We had plans for dinner that night, but no set plans for the day. It was a decent day for it being Feburary in Indiana, so we decided on a small road trip. We headed out to Valparaiso to see a few old friends that we haven't seen in awhile. First stop, L's oldest friend H. We haven't gotten to see him in a few months (which is forever when you are 2) because mom and dad are going through a divorce and custody trial. Luckily dad had him that day. The kids all had a great time playing with each other and the dads. I got to set back and enjoy all the fun! Then off to Adam's great friend and former boss, Gregg's house. He and his wife, Danielle, were great fun to visit too. The kids had fun begging for food, even though they had been eating all day, and Danielle was happy to oblige! Then it was off to our dinner reservations! White Castle. Now if you aren't familiar with what they do for valentine's day, then let me explain. They close the store to only reservations. They decorate the store with table cloths, candles, flowers, and fun things on the walls. They even have a special menu. This has become a tradition for us for the last 3 years. It started because we had little L, no money, and I wanted it to be a special day, did I mention that I was pregnant with D too! And it was great fun. Now the only problem is that the closest one is and hour and a half away. But it is worth it. I brought coloring books for the kids this year and since they had been eating their way across northern Indiana they only wanted the water they were brought and some fries. So here are pictures from the last 3 years and then some cute ones from this year!

Valentine's Day 2007 (L is 8 months old and I'm 7 months pregnant)

Valentine's Day 2008 (D is 8 months old, and L is 20 months old)

Valentine's Day 2009 (D is 20 months old and L is 2 1/2 years old)

I think this is the best daddy daughter shot we have.

L eating the only fry he had the whole night

D being silly for daddy

This is the face she makes when we tell her to smile

We did get to visit my dad after dinner too since we were so close. We actually played a joke on him. More on that later!

I love seeing these pictures from the last 3 years because how many times do you take a picture on the same day every year for 3 years. And how many of you have kids the same age in each?
