This Valentine’s Day was special for two reasons – it was Vida’s first Valentine’s Day and it was Declan’s first Valentine’s Day at school where he got to exchange Valentine’s with his classmates.
We woke up early that day and I took Declan to the doughnut shop up the street. Everyone seemed to have the same idea because by the time we got there all of the Valentine themed donuts were gone. But that didn’t stop Declan from eating a sprinkle doughnut. I then dropped him off at school with his bag of Valentine cards (Ninja Turtle, of course, and Mickey Mouse pretzels). Vida and I went to go visit Dad/Hubby at work and took him some doughnuts.
The rest of the day Vida and I spent together running errands and visiting Nana at work. In the afternoon we went out for an early Valentine family dinner at The Crack Shack in Little Italy. I kept hearing about this place and the hype was real. They make some darn good chicken. Even Mr. Picky Eater Declan had some; and Vida. Then again, she’ll eat anything right now because it’s all so new haha.
It was a lovely, mellow family Valentine’s Day this year. Flowers and box of chocolates included.
And how sweet is this Valentine card Declan made us?? *tears
