Nine Years Ago...

Justin had been off his mission for about a month and a half when he asked me out on our second date to Tucanos for Valentine's day. At that time I was just happy I had been asked out on a date for Valentine's day. I had no idea that we would get married two years later, but I can say, that on that date, I realized he was definitely someone special. We were pretty much attached at the hip from that day forward.

For Valentine's day this year, I thought it would be fun to go again. This time we invited our friends, the Hoelzers, to come with us. Tyler is also in the residency at the U with Justin, and Ali and I have become great friends. Her last two kids are the same ages as Zach and Kate.

For the kids we made them pancakes, with a few of them heart-shaped, and gave them a few treats. Later that night, we went over the uncle Jeff's and aunt Britt's house for dinner, and afterward the kids got to decorate sugar cookies and dip strawberries into chocolate. Needless to say they had a very sweet Valentine's Day. In Zach's words, "This is the bestest day ever!"
