It’s Valentines Day this week-I cannot believe that we are in February already, but here we are. What are your plans? We are headed to Virginia to visit our son and take him to dinner-romantic, huh:) After 19 years of marriage the romance of Valentines Day is a bit lost or should I say the idea of going to an expensive, pre-made, crowded dinner is not very romantic.

The parents are usually sitting around in lawn chairs laughing, drinking and eating. It is just a fun night! And, then to top the whole night off there are fireworks in the sky.
