…really had nothing to do with Valentine’s Day at all!!
We stink at this holiday. Devon and I have never really celebrated it, because our anniversary is the day after, and it’s more fun for us to celebrate that. Of course we do the requisite store-bought boxes of valentines for the kids to give their friends, but beyond that I’m pretty much tapped out.
I felt super guilty this year after seeing all the cute crafty blogs - all the Moms with their heart-shaped pancakes and hand-crafted Cupid cards and pink-tinted milk.
Next year, I need to step up. Heart-shaped sandwiches for everyone!!
But we did have a very fun day, despite the lack of Valentine-ness. Some good friends of ours invited us to a local indoor pool complex, and it was the perfect break from gloomy winter!
See those cone-shaped bucket things up there? They fill up with water and just randomly – and unsuspectingly – dump about 42 gallons of water RIGHT ON YOUR HEAD. (And your camera. Was I paying attention? Of course.)
Lots of silly splashing, sliding, and spraying…I think this could be a new Valentine’s Day tradition!
