Our Valentines celebrations

They all started on Thursday at MOPS where the little mans class decorated cookies and passed out valentines.

When I came down to get him this was the scene

but a few minutes later he was covered with pink sticky goo.
I thought that he was going to be bouncing off the walls because of all the sugar and food dye but he was as calm as can be.
Later that night the little man went over to my parents house while the hubby and I went out to dinner. We have gone out to dinner on Valentines day in years past but it is just a mad house. The little man did not even notice/ care that we were not there. Maybe we need to go out to dinner just the two of us more than just once a year.
Today for the 'real' Valentines day we went down to the Meadows at Chambers Bay to watch the hubby fly kites. There was not much wind so there was not much kite flying going on. We had a picnic. It was a very nice day, not too cold or rainy.

We got the little man a elmo kite that we were able to get up in the air for a little while.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentines day.

I find myself these days letting the little man do thing that the hubby would never allow but it makes life 'easier.' Like, it is much 'easier' to clean up a little water than tell the little man 900+ times to stay out of the dish washer during the 15 or so minutes that it takes me to load it.

And it is 'easier' to let him wash his hair with the water than the dishes.

The only flaw to this whole plan was that the hubby got home from work early and saw the whole thing. I bet you that if he was at home all day he would find things too that would make life 'easier.'
What are some things that you do that make life 'easier?'

Shadows on Groundhogs day

Just like Punxsutawney Phil did this morning we saw our shadows also. (I am not looking foward to 6 more weeks of winter) Today was a beautiful day so I bundled up my little man and his friend and we headed down to the local park. They both sat very well in the wagon. I was able to get a nice work out also pulling 50+ pounds of kids up one hill on the way to the park and up an even bigger hill on the way home.

The boys had a great time playing. My little man just cant get enough of the big tunnel slide.

I guess I could handle 6 more weeks of days like this.
