Our Valentine's Weekend

 This year, we planned a quick trip down to Thibodaux on Valentine's weekend!!  A long-time friend of ours was getting married and it was a perfect time for a little getaway!!

Before heading out of town, Wade grilled for us.. and had his boys come out and help him.  Since they had already had baths, I made them sit and be still, ha!  And Savannah, being so cute, wanted to make them very comfortable!!

Precious boy, curled up with his Mickey. ;))
We start teaching them the ways of the grill early around here!

 The morning arrived and it was time to get packed up and ready while Daddy was at work..  While I was busy getting things done, the kids were outside playing!

And by playing, I mean taking dives into the ditch. :/  

But how could a mom stay upset when her littles are this cute?!

When they broke into Mommy's eyeliner and used it for war paint, however, it was ON.

Once we got to Thibodaux, these two had such a fun time playing on Abigail's bike/go cart ride!!

Best little buddies!

Sweet sister rode Grant around, too!

Barefoot in Cajun country and laying in the street. Because that's how we do.

Beautiful Vannie Baby!!

I love how much my kids love each other.  They fight and pinch and argue, too.. but when it comes down to it, they genuinely love each other!  When Brother's ticket was not picked for several weeks at Monday school and Savannah had already won a door prize, the second time she won, she went straight to the front, brought back a toy sword, and handed it right to Andrew.  She said, "I knew you would love this.  I've already won a prize.  This one's for you."  Cue the tears!! 

My biggest and littlest boys in their matching hoodies!  Love it!!

Nana and Paw were so great and kept our 4 babies while Wade and I attended our friend's wedding!  It is so rare that we get one-on-one date nights, especially ones that require black stilettos!!
It was lovely getting to dress up for a night out!!

We went on our first date this weekend SIXTEEN years ago!  8th grade was a big year for us, ha!!  This makes more Valentine's Days that we've been together than apart.. and it just makes sense. Like peanut butter and jelly.  Or ham and eggs.. We just go together. - Wade (many, many years ago!)
Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!!  With all the love and sweetness going around, let's remember the One who loved us first. Let's remind ourselves that only through knowing Him do we understand what true love really is.

"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I love you, my Wadie!!  The last 16 Valentine's have been blissful... Let's do it all again. ;))
