This just may have been the best Valentines weekend of my life, truly. No jewelry was received, no out of town get-aways, just perfect for us. Our weekend-o-love started off on Friday night. The Crazies spent the night with Grammy and Pappy, and Gary and I went to a marriage conference at a church nearby. Friday night was a great dinner and speaker, then home... to an empty house. We stayed up late talking, and even hit up Taco Bell at midnight... because we could. Romantic. Saturday morning we went back to church and learned more about strengthening our marriage. It was so inspiring to see so many couples committed to loving one another and learning to make their families stronger by first making their marriage stronger. It is a crucial lesson to be reminded of, to put God first, THEN our spouse, THEN our children.

After the different sessions were over, we picked up The Crazies and got ready for our Date Nights. Gary took Sweetpea on a Daddy/Daughter date, and The Goofball and I headed out for our own Mommy/Son date. A few weeks ago, Gary heard about a Daddy/Daughter Date Night hosted by Chick-Fil-A (just another reason why I love the philosophy behind this company!), complete with table service, pictures, and goody bags. So after dinner there, they headed to Bass Pro Shop to look at the fish (Daddy of course loves that he's training up kids who love to fish!) and then to a little gelato place nearby.

Goofball's plan for the night included dinner at Olive Garden, ice cream, then out to the movies. We had to revamp his big itinerary, and instead headed to Pei Wei and Baskin Robbins, then home to cuddle and watch a movie. He kept saying through the whole date, "I just love spending time with my favorite mom." He even opened the door for me everywhere we went. This boy is going to make a great husband for some young lady someday!

Our weekend continues tomorrow with a hike on South Mountain in some glorious 75 degree weather and a day off for everyone! Hope your weekend was just as special to you!
