Valentines Banquet


Last night we enjoyed the Valentines Banquet at our church. The inviation said 6 so we left around 6:20, and still things didn't get started until around 7. It was Blaise's first time being put to bed by someone other than Zaak or I, but he was in the able hands of Mariah and went right to sleep. So we had a fun time listening to musical numbers, laughing at the couples who played the "blow up your balloon and pop it hugging" game, eating a delicious meal, and hearing an encouraging talk about loving and appreciating your spouse. It was really nice to get out and remember what it's like to just be us, and why we fell in love in the first place:) In the photo the drink in our glasses is Grapette - a grape flavored pop. We had a good chuckle over being served grape pop at this romantic event.

Finally I can make a comment on your Blog Amber!! Sometimes it won't let me see the word verification other wise I would comment tons!! How nice to have a date out for Valentines! Sounds so fun! I'm grateful for Mariah's babysitting....how did it go??? The first time I left Zaak wasn't too great...he cried alot. My night out wasn't worth it...saw an awful movie...

Debby - Blaise was so good for Mariah! She said he went right to sleep when she put him down for teh night! How old was Zaak the first time you left him?
Maybe Blaise takes more after me, temperament wise - more easygoing:)

The color of the pop looks really cool. Kinda pinky purple. Glad you guys had a romantic evening.

The both of you look so happy and I'm glad that you got to have a Romantic evening out together. I could go for some of that grape pop, there's nothing like that here...
