Feb 14th was our 37th anniversary. I am writing about it on Dec 30th, because I kept thinking I'd find time to say something profound. However, THIS year turned out vastly different than we were expecting on Feb 14th and I never got around to sharing. Our anniversary is on Valentine's Day. We rarely go out on Valentine's Day as we don't appreciate the crowds. This year we did something different. We packed a picnic, removed the van's back seats and headed for the mountains. We choose to celebrate before or after the 14th. We drove into the mountains on Feb 13th. This left the 14th for church and cake with the kids. We actually broke our "eat out on Sunday" routine and ate at home to avoid the crowds.
We timed it in time to arrive before the sunset. We found a great spot to back into so we could enjoy our food from the comfort of the warm van while we watched the sun set. Michael ventured outside longer than I to get photos of the scenery.

Thirty-seven years of doing life together. Maybe that's as profound as it gets this year. ::snort::
On a side note, it was wonderful to have older kids stay with Grandpa so we could go out, this led to scheduling a few hours a week of respite care.
Allie moved in Feb 15th.
