Valentine's Day 2011

Valentine's Day began like this:
Holden was the first boy up just after 7am. And he wakes completely prepared to tackle the day.
And Pax was up about 30 minutes later. He comes to life a little more slowly in the mornings. They each got a balloon from us. They passionately love balloons so seeing this little gift nearly cause hyperventilation. I got them dressed in their V-day gear and we headed to the neighborhood playground to meet some friends and play in this amazing spring-like weather. We played outside for over 2 hours and then headed home for lunch. Those 2 hours outside may have aided Holden in napping for almost 4 hours and Pax napping for a solid 3 hours. Wow! This momma decided her V-day afternooon would consist of relaxing. So that's what I did. A restful afternoon for the 3 of us.
Jeremy took care of dinner by picking up this beauty at Papa Murphy's. Delish!Yep, heart-shaped pizza. He's a romantic. He also thought we needed dessert.
And then Holden took a picture of me with my Valentine.
We did baths for the boys and to bed they went. And then, Jeremy and I curled up on the couch and the unthinkable happened. He watched The Bachelor with me. Sweet guy, huh? He hates that show and for some reason I just can't stop the madness. During the show, the doorbell rings and this is what greeted me:
Great day. Low-key and simple. Adding little ones to your life changes alot of things, like Valentine's Day. (Honestly, Valentine's Day is the least of those changes.) But I wouldn't trade it for anything. Hope yours was lovey-dovey with heart-shaped pizza and all!
