Happy Valentines! We had intentions of going out on a mom and dad only date tonight but again our life took over and we ended up having more fun and having a better "date" than we could ever have planned to have at a restaurant. We left around lunch and headed out to go see some birds for the backyard birdwatch.(all those geese they were chasing flew right at my head...i ducked, otherwise there would have been a better picture).
This turned into a family trek, stick hunting along the river. I have a habit of accumulating sticks. I love having them in the house, so i am always looking. There is a stick project to come, made by my wonderful husband....i can not wait!
Anyway, i digress...we grabbed some lunch and checked out the visitors center and museum here. The kids loved it...especially Mitch, lots of weapons! On the way home i mentioned this lookout point that i remembered so we took the kids there and ended up having a leisurely trek through the woods, exploring and enjoying the woods so close to our house. We were tired but had enjoyed every minute. This picture of Mitch was taken by Avery, as was the one of her at the end.
Super Husband/ Daddy/ the best Valentine ever made us heart shaped pancakes for dinner. We got the table all decked out and had dinner by candlelight(something we should do more often, it is a lot of fun). My three valentines are wonderful...it was a great day!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
Join in the Fun
