Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day at our house usually consists of eating a lot of candy and going to bed early. This year that was not to be the case. David surprised me with tickets to Thanksgiving Point's Valentine Dinner and Dance. Having seen the pictures on the website we decided we better get all dolled up for the event.

Dear sweet Jodi watch the little ones for us and helped us out with our modeling shoot. Thanks Jodi! Notice David thinking of all the fun we were going to have, and Ronni with her big eyes wondering if she would have to fast dance.
When we arrived our salads were ready for us. We sat with three other couples; A college couple that was way too cool for the rest of us, an older couple with kids out of the house and a couple in their thirties (we don't know if the had kids or not). While we dined a live band played the likes of Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Adele, Michael Buble and Queen. It was a very interesting mix to say the least. After dinner we enjoyed some dancing and then desert. It was really fun to get dressed up and go out on the town with my honey. We need to do it much more often.
Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day!

Why did the chicken go to preschool?

To go to show and tell of course!

Chandler asked if he could take one of the chickens to show and tell a few weeks ago. We called Mrs. Julie and she said it would be okay, so Jessie was able to show off for the kids.
She walked around and checked out everything and didn't even poop on the floor or in the car.
Chandler told the kids how he feeds them, puts them in their coop and collects the eggs each morning.

In August we went to Colorado to visit Grandpa and Grandma Black on their mission. We had so much fun. We visited some fun towns and rode the train.
I could live in any of these homes. Georgetown was the most adorable town I have ever seen.
The Silver Plume train ride.
We purchased a season pass to the Dinosaur museum in Ogden. With the pass we also get in to the Union Station, the Zoo for 1/2 price and the Tracy Aviary. The kids love the Aviary and mom pretends she is in another world.
