Valentine's Day Weekend

Getting ready to go swim.

All our cards, and my belly with the growing Leah inside.

We had a fun filled Valentine's Day weekend this year. My parents offered to babysit all the kiddos Friday evening so that they would not be asked Saturday and could enjoy their own day, so we took them up on the offer.
After Bobby got home from work, we headed to Joe's Crab Shack. We had a coupon and a gift card, so after crab legs, steak, a side of hushpuppies as an appetizer, and tip, we only paid $11. We headed back to my parents' to pick up the girls for a family fun night.
We took them to a hotel for the night. It will probably be the last time it is just the 4 of us in a hotel, so we savored every moment of it. We put them in their jammies before heading to the hotel, got to the hotel around 9 pm and the girls proceeded to go crazy in the room until them conked out around 10:30 pm. Before them fell asleep, we gave them their bags with Strawberry Shortcake themed items from the Target $1 bins. They loved everything. They also gave their daddy the cards they had made. I also got a beautiful card with a picture that the girls had colored.
The next morning, we got up, had a wonderful breakfast, and then headed to the pool. The girls and I had a lot of fun. Bobby did a lot of chasing Sarah. :) After swimming, we went back and gave the girls a bath, and they got ready to go. Checkout was at Noon, and we left a bit after 11 am.
We headed home (to my parents') to enjoy the rest of the day. Sarah and Bobby napped while Bekah and I went to the grocery store. I wish I had my camera with me, cause I shoved so much into one of those movie carts at Meijer that Bekah had to hold food on her lap down in the car part of the cart. It was hilarious!! All-in-all, it was a wonderful weekend!
