Valentines Day

It's Valentines Day tomorrow so this week seems to have been filled with hearts, roses and red. We went to a playdate on Wednesday with a Valentines theme. We ate red food (raspberries and strawberries) and heart-shaped food (rice krispy treats), made Valentine hearts for the Dad's, and did a Valentines Day quiz. The kids all got a heart shaped helium balloon and the host gave out the Valentine gift seen to the left. It says 'Seth goes bananas over great friends like you' and inside the bag is a banana. Lucy was extremely excited about the banana and wanted to eat it straight away. It was such a welcome change to the usual artifical candy given out.

Tonight we are going to church for a Valentines dinner. I think how it works is that Andrew and I get a romantic dinner (with everyone else from church) whilst Lucy is looked after separately. All the money collected for the dinner goes to the youth mission that is occurring in July. So whilst we wouldn't usually do anything for V Day we are participating in this one for a good cause!
