We wanted to do something special together as a family for Valentine's dinner so a picnic it was. We planned an exquisite menu, packed up our goodies, Joey's old six string and headed out to Kenneth Meyers Park to plant ourselves with a lovely bayside view. The kids loved the excitement of it all and what a big deal it was. They were such awesome helpers preparing with me all day. The best part was Joey serenading us with love songs and improvising to make it fun with our names.

We decided to host a Valentine's Day cookie decorating party for the kids and a couple of their friends on Saturday. Afterall, what's Valentine's without a few sugar cookies to share?! The kids were SO excited to invite their friends over and loved setting up the party. Ellie was a little confused about why grandma didn't come to town for this party since grandma always seems to be around for our fun parties. Nevertheless, we carried on and the kids all loved it! They actually sat and decorated cookies for a lot longer than I thought they would. The best part about outdoor parties all year long?...easy peasy clean up and the sprinkles stay outside.
