Our V Day this year was pretty mellow, but nice. Declan and I started off the day with some grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s to pick up some lunch supplies. They gave him some Valentine’s Day stickers so naturally I stuck them all over his face and shirt. He was amused for about 1 minute.
We then walked up to Heartwork Coffee Bar; the newest/closest coffee shop in our neighborhood. Declan and I shared a vegan strawberry doughnut and I sipped on my iced coffee. We then walked home and Declan napped while I packed a lunch for our picnic.
We had a nice picnic at Balboa Park in the area that has one of Declan’s favorite playgrounds. I made salami/cheese sandwiches in a baguette. I also packed some fruit, sweet potato chips, mineral water and I made a “healthy” trail mix as a V Day gift to my little family. It was so delicious I just might make some more often. I also purchased this book for Declan which is now one of his favorite go-to’s at bedtime.
Trail mix ingredients: kettle corn, strawberry yogurt cheerios, dried strawberries, chocolate/graham bunny crackers, Valentine M&Ms.
