We had a lovely valentine's Day. Since the children were off from school we started the day with some pink, heart shaped pancakes, cards and small gifts.
We invited some friends over for a play date. I put some hot cocoa in the crock pot and froze some heart shaped ice cubes for the children to hide and play with in the snow.
After lunch we took the kids on their Valentine adventure. This year we decided to take them to check out the Pez factory in Orange Ct. The kids loved it! They had fun watching the candy being made and were thrilled to pick out a new pez dispenser from the hundreds displayed in the store.
That evening we got a babysitter and headed out to the wine bar at The Gris with some friends. We had a lovely evening sipping wine and nibbling on tapas. Essex is my favorite town in Ct. and it didn't disappoint with a gorgeous snow fall and a romantic evening with my husband. We had a lovely Valentines day from beginning to end.
