With the scarcity of babysitters and the wonderful date we had for our anniversary at the end of January, I knew the likelihood of going out for Valentine's Day was pretty slim. So I decided to offer to babysit for our friends in return and throw a Valentine's party for the kids. Then, as I thought of fun activities and scoured Pinterest, I decided we could be crazy and invite the kids of the other family we trade babysitting with too. That way both of them could get dates. And for some reason I just really enjoy planning parties, probably more than I enjoy being at them! ;) But in the end, even with 7 kids, it was fun, though a bit exhausting!
It wasn't the typical "go out for a nice dinner" Valentine's Day. But as much as I enjoy that, I know that this one will be a sweet, special one to remember.
