Valentine's Day: Massages and Monster Trucks

 Our Valentine's started on Thursday afternoon, writing on all of the Valentines. Gage was funny because he put all of the different trains in piles and carefully selected which classmate got which train. I didn't think he would be so particular about his Valentines.

 On Valentine's morning, the big kids woke up to monster trucks and tickets to the Monster Truck Show the next day. They also got a few little goodies and some cards from each other in their mailboxes.

 Miley got lots of coloring things and a new doll house book to keep her busy with the baby sitter while we all went to the monster truck show. It's hard being a baby.

Valentine outfits:

 She was being a little stinker and this was the best pic I could get of her.

That afternoon, I went into Maisey's class for her party.
 We brought heart fruit kabobs

 and some heart cheese with crackers. 

I love helping in Maisey's class. I love getting to know the kids so well, I love making them feel special, and I love that they make me feel happy! :)

 Maisey's checking out her Valentine cards from her friends!

Grammy came over after school to babysit so Shaun and I could go out. It had been waaaaaay too long since we've gone out just the two of us!

 Shaun booked a couples massage, which was wonderful! 

 And was complete with a box of chocolates from the spa! 

We folllowed it up with dinner and then some shopping. 
And just a note: if you go bra shopping on Valentine's day, you WILL run into someone you know while your husband is holding ten potential bras for you. You will sit and talk to them for a while, and then be completely embarrassed every time you think of the situation. Just saying!

On to the next day: The Monster Truck Show!!!!!

These are most of the trucks that competed. Max D won the freestyle portion.

 Grave Digger won the race portion during the first half.

 The kids' favorite truck was Iron Man.

On the way home we drove through some freak rain storm that was so scary. But once we got through it we saw these beautiful rainbows!

The perfect end to a perfect Valentine's weekend!

Your family was super generous on Valentine's. I guess it was highly important that no one in the world felt left alone on that day. In any case, events truly took a turn when you headed for that monster truck show. Well, I'm at least glad the whole family seem to enjoyed it. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing that! All the best! :)

Your Valentine’s Day celebration looks like a blast! Your kids obviously loved every gift they received. Aside from that comes the best part of your celebration, which is the Monster Truck show! I can see that everyone enjoyed it. I like the Iron Man monster truck too; it looks sturdy and quite awesome. You truly have an amazing family, and it’s good to see you all spending a quality time together. Cheers!
