We decided this year to celebrate the American Valentine's day as a family.
My girlfriend and I usually have a date night on the American and Brasilian Valentine's days so the kids are used to that. In the past we've bought the kids some candy and done some special things for them but we've never had a fixed tradition with the kids on those days. This year Carys reminded us that we have as a family, in the past, made valentine's cards for each other. My girlfriend and I remember doing that maybe once or twice year but it's been a while ago. It's never been a fixed tradition. Leave it to Carys to remember something fun like that and wanting to repeat it.
So we repeated it again this year and it was fun.
As in many of our posts here we realize that it's mainly for our two girls that aren't in our house anymore. I apologize to the rest of you guys.
So B and Ans, here are some Valentine Day pics.
You know some people worked really hard at their cards.
We had Lightning McQueen.
She made a dog for Giovanni with a piece of red candy in it's mouth for a wagging tongue.
Star Wars for Giovanni.
Other things also happened during the day. Day to day stuff. Like MD appointments or standing in a bank line for 30 minutes waiting to pay a bill. Things definitely not picture worthy and not so fun.
But we got to end the day at our neighborhood pool which was awesome because it's been in the mid 90's and our house has no air conditioning so we enjoyed cooling off.
All in all we had a great time inventing our Valentine's Day celebration.
Some more than others.
