Valentine's Day

My cute little Valentine's.
Trey's first time in the swings - I'm pretty sure he liked it.   

How is Trey so big?! 
These snacks lasted 2 minutes in the cup...then got dumped ALL over the couch. 

Curtis planned a little weekend getaway for Valentine's Day.  My mom approached Curtis a few weeks ago and told him they could babysit that weekend and then left it up to him to plan it all out.  He wrote me a poem/love note Friday morning.  It was the sweetest thing!  Then gave me an itinerary saying I won a 2 night weekend getaway to Newport Beach.  He had it all planned out.  My stomach originally sank.  I wondered who was going to watch my kids and how I was going to leave all my babies...  Once I knew my parents were coming for the weekend I felt A LOT better and was excited!  It's kind of funny because we seriously followed his itinerary to a T.  It was such a fun weekend filled with massages, pedicures, bike ride on the beach, Cafe Rio, Cheesecake Factory, movies, frozen yogurt, etc.  It was perfect!  We had time to reconnect and actually talk with each other.  I feel like after I put Trey to bed at 9pm, wash my face, brush my teeth, throw a load of laundry in - I'm ready for bed.  We don't have time to really just sit and talk with each other.  It was perfect timing.  I think every couple needs a little getaway at least once or twice a year.  I'm so thankful my parents were willing to sacrifice their Valentine's weekend to watch all my kiddos. 

 View from our hotel.  :)  That's my kind of view. 
 I love how much my kids love their Grandma! 
I came home to this amazing homemade gift from Curtis.  I absolutely LOVE it!  He did good.  He always does good.

Glad you and Curtis were able to get away for some much needed R&R. Love your Homemade gift from Curtis BTW. I’m not surprised that Curtis put so much thought into planning your Valentine’s Day getaway. Those Brown brothers learned from the best. ;-0

I’m always amazed Kim, at what you guys are able to accomplish with so many little ones vying for your attention and your affections. One day all of this will be just a blur upon your memory and you’ll wonder where did the time go. The little ones will grow up and be gone from home before you know it, so I’m glad you’re able to document these moments in your own words and with your many photos. Continue to put your Heavenly Father first, your relationship with one another second, and your children’s lives will flourish.

Thank you Grandma Julie. Thank you Grandpa Mitch, for babysitting and allowing Curtis and Kim to have some time away to rejuvenate themselves and spend some alone time together, knowing their children are safe and well cared for by Grandma and Grandpa.

We love you.
Cheryl and Herman
