Last year we spent the day in the ER. Thank God we are not there today. In fact we are so not there that Dave took the day off to stay at home with his girls and spread the love.

So to begin with Dave and I spent a lazy Saturday lounging around watching movies in bed. The girls received brand new tents so they played in those while watching their movie downstairs. Liv still has a cold but I think the downtime really helped her feel better. Sunday we packed up and visited the zoo. We ate lunch, rode some rides, petted and brushed the sheep and goats, and basically got a pretty good work out on those hills. The girls had their fun and Olivia sang her melodies the entire ride home. That's her new thing now that she's in love with Taylor Swift. Singing in the car to the radio- ah... the memories- oh wait that was yesterday.

And today--- the greatest day of all--- The girls woke up and ran downstairs to see what the valentine fairy left for them. While Dave and I laid in bed we could hear the scrambling of little feet doing something. Soon we were surprised by two cuties wearing their new bathing suits. Ava was still wearing her panties underneath and Olivia had her leg going thru the body part so her suit was hiked up her butt. But they looked good alright. They proceeded to tell us everything they received and that they wanted to go swimming in the tub to test their suits out. Dave being the good Daddy that he is hopped out of bed and started the water for the tub. Then they went downstairs and made muffins and eggs and then dressed Olivia for school. Today is her Valentine's Day party. Off they went while Ava and I snuggled some more in bed.

So I don't know what's on the agenda for the middle of the day but so far it has been wonderful and filled with love. Just the way it is supposed to be. Later tonight Olivia has her first Karate class and afterwards we will have something yummy for dinner. Last night Liv and Dave ate their hearts out on Oysters with our shrimp and pasta dinner. I don't really know what I could make that would top that. Maybe we should just go out. Either way I think we will all feel the love. Happy Valentine's Day!
