Does not get more romantic than that! We have drug out this Valentine's Day a little bit. We started celebrating early by going out to dinner just the three of us (Lyndon, me, and Henry) the night before.
February 13th is a special day for us too because that is day Lyndon proposed to me on. We went to the Ballet West's performance of Swan Lake and walked up to the Salt Lake Temple where he proposed. It was a wonderful evening and since then Valentine's has been a wonderful reminder of the beginning of our life together.
Henry is happy to be out with Daddy and Mommy.
We went to the restaurant we ate at our first time ever in Paris together. It is called Brasserie Le Bourbon just off the from Hotel de Invalides. We are sentimental and romantic. I had the best meal the first time we went, steak with Roquefort cheese sauce. We have been talking about that meal for the last three years. It was amazing! V-day is a pretty good excuse to go back. The meal was just as amazing as we remembered it. The French do know how to make the best food. It was wonderful just to spend some kind of alone time with the hubs. Going out just the two of us is very rare, but that is how it is with a new baby.
|Our cheese plate. We are being spoiled by the food in France. I am not sure what we are going to do when we go back to the states. The cheese and bread are so much better here. I am not a cheese person but I am being converted.|
|For dessert we shared a homemade profiterole. It was delicious! The French are the masters of food!|
Cosette participated in a couple of Valentine's activities. This week at story time it was Valentine's themed. We read lots of great stories about Valentine's Day and then decorated a heart. Then our ward's primary had a Valentine's activity that she was able to attend. There are not many kids her age here and she had a wonderful time playing with the other primary kids. Of course decorating cookies and eating frosting was fun too.
Happy Valentine's Day from us! We like this holiday a lot.
