V-day in O'ville


Kent had to work today, so we did our Valentine's celebrating yesterday.

We got the kids their V-day presents... SKATES! They loved them. Nathan got a little lawnmower thingy. He doesn't really like it too much, but will play with it if one of the other kids is playing with it. Figures.
As you saw from the last entry, Kent cooked all the kids, even Nathan, a heart spaped pancake. We then went outside and played and let the kids ride around on their skates. Once falling a few times, they were done. LOL.

Then Zoey and I had a girls day out.. our first(at least our first planned one). We went shopping for the rest of Kent's Valentine's Day present and just shopped around. Then we went to Chik-fil-A and had lunch and then she played on the playground for a bit. When we left I grabbed a milkshake for us to split. We had a really good time together. I plan to do that sort of then more often with her. I feel like sometimes she is over looked being the middle child and all.

Later that evening my parents kept the kids for us so we could go out to eat. We exchanged gifts in the car. I got him a new XBOX and I gave him a book that I made on Shutterfly.com that had our pictures in it with little captions. It turned out cute. Anyway, he gave me a gift certificate to a local spa for a manicure and pedicure. We then were on our way to eat. We ate at Fuji's which is a Japanese restaurant where they cook the food right in front of you. It was yummy.

We ended our night with the kids in bed and Kent playing his new XBOX game and me studying. Pretty romantic, no?

It was a great day.
