Valentine's Weekend

We took a long weekend and spent a number of days at Grandma's house. This is always our vacation spot of choice. It has it all. Great outdoor activities and lots of playmates. The cousins that live nearby come over and play, run around and make a lot of noise. Just what the kids need.

Grandpa always seems to have a big bunch of sticks and such to burn out in the pasture. I have a bunch of fire bugs that have a little too much fun throwing things into the flames.

Aunt Julie is always excited to see us come for a visit. She really likes to watch the little kids play and makes sure they don't get into trouble.

My boys are always so excited to see the one boy cousin in the area. He is 12, but doesn't seem to mind too much that these boys think he is GREAT!

And finally for Valentines day this year I decided to get each of the kids a poster for their room rather than a card or toys or anything (I couldn't swing, and didn't want to do, the expensive Valentines Day gifts like they got last year). These are the ones I picked out for them. Sophie was given Esther, Ian received Joseph of Egypt and Henry loves his David and Goliath.

They are now hanging on their walls and they love them.

I hope you all had a great Valentines day!

The posters are a great idea! Where did you get them?

Those are great photos! I should have taken some, too.
