Best Valentines Day Ever!!
We were so blessed to have a wonderful evening yesterday. When the girls woke up from their naps we decided to ascend a good size hill behind the neighborhood we live in. The recent rain had turned the hill bright green, scattered with beautiful yellow mustard flowers. We drove to the base of it and hiked almost all the way up! Kalena did it all by herself and loved every minute. She was busy looking at the flowers and collecting sticks. Jus and I toted Katelyn and Sara while spontaneously breaking out into choruses of "The Hills Are Alive." We got to a good spot and had a picnic dinner we brought along. As we were eating a heard of horses trotted down behind us and one even came right up to the fence we were sitting near. We were sad we hadn't brought any carrots! We watched it get dark and opened a box of chocolates to share. As we were eating sweet Kalena rested her hand on Justin and said, "Happy Valentines Day daddy!" It was so sweet. This sounds like a fairy tale valentines evening for a family with three kids 3 and under, and that is exactly what it was. Perfect! We didn't have enough hands to bring the camera, so we will all have to use our imagination and memory to recall the evening. It was really the sweetest time we have ever shared as a family! I am so thankful to God for each of my sweet little girls, and for my wonderful husband.
