Love our Valentine's Day Tradition.....

Ahhh, so Happy Valentine's Day! Hope everybody had a great one.....We have had a great weekend so far.....today we got up and headed out to go see Danielle's volleyball game....she is almost 10 and lives across the street from us. The girls just adore her and follow her around and are pretty much glued to her when they see her.....I always have to remind the girls to give Danielle some personal space....Anyway, the girls LOVED watching her play volleyball....you know me planting the seed early, Volleyball was probably my favorite sport to play growing up so I really hope one of the twins pick it up.....After volleyball we played at the park at the elementary where the V-ball games were...so fun just running around playing and swinging with the girls and the neighbors....

Then it was off to lunch, I swear haven't cooked all weekend...which means we ate out lunch....MJ picked Chick-Fil-A.....It is her favorite place....and I have to admit the food is good for fast food....after lunch we relaxed around the house for a bit and then headed out through the neighborhood to drop off Valentine's Cookies to some of our neighbors....it was so fun, the girls loved ringing the doorbells and wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day......they were so proud of the cookies they made yesterday with Tim and Danielle (our neighbors kiddos)....Sugar Cookies of course, cut out in heart shape with icing and v-tines day colored sprinkles....The girls also received cookies today from Naomi (another neighbor kiddo) and they all got a single flower from Chance (another neighbor).....he was so cute when he rang the door bell and delivered the girls their flowers....Just Too Cute! After the flower delivery MJ crashed out on the couch and Lila fell asleep standing up and leaning on me.....I didn't know she was sleeping until she leaned back and fell on a pillow....Here is a few shots of that....
So as most of you know our usual V-Tines day tradition is for Shawn to take his "Ladies" out for burgers....we had been looking around at a few places and hadn't decided on a place....then Heather (Danielle's mom) caught me on-line on Facebook and said that they were going to try some new gourmet burger place and wanted to know if we wanted to join them.....(they too liked the idea of heading out to burgers on V-tines day)....anyway....we said we would love to join them....So we all went out together to Gourmet Burger Grill......My word my burger was soooo good and the onion rings were probably some of the best I have ever had.....Every ones food looked and tasted so great...This place is a winner in my book and I know we will be back....Shoot kids eat free on Wednesday (ALL DAY)...plus there are so many tasty items left to try on their menu and not to mention their specials....So great!.....It was so fun going out as a group with Heather & Carlos and kiddos....we had such a good time, it was hard to leave the restaurant......we really love our neighbors....they are so fun and I believe we have many more Friday Night Driveway Happy Hours ahead of ourselves with them and all of Woodthorn North (our part of the 'hood)...........
