Valentines Fun

Valentines Day
We didn't have any plans to celebrate Valentines Day, but it ended up being a pretty special day. Before Chris left for work, he surprised me with a generous gift certificate to the spa! Since the kids were still sick, I decided we'd run some errands to get out of the house. We went to the mall and then to Babies R Us to get some diapers. The kids always do great at the mall in the double stroller, but I was a little nervous about taking them to Babies R Us since I had to use the shopping cart to put the boxes of diapers in. I knew that Sienna would sit in the shopping cart but I had no idea what I was going to do with Brayden! Since I didn't have any other options, I decided I'd just have to let Brayden walk...hoping that he wouldn't run off when he saw something he wanted to play with. I was really impressed with how well he listened to me...I only had to pick him up a couple of times in order to move us along. While we were there, I saw that they finally had the CARS sofa that we wanted to get Brayden for Christmas. The cart was already full with the 4 large boxes of diapers (2 in the basket and 2 in the bottom) but somehow I managed to balance the sofa on top of the 2 boxes in the basket. I wish I had had my was quite the sight! Luckily we made it back to the car without any problems...whew!

The CARS Sofa
Brayden and Sienna looked so cute sitting in Brayden's new sofa reading books.

Of course, Sienna got bored with the book and moved on to something more interesting...Brayden!

I actually thought Sienna was going to plant a big kiss on Brayden...

But he managed to escape before things got too crazy!

And of course Sienna followed him...forcing him to find safety in higher ground!

While Sienna was upstairs taking a nap, Brayden had fun pretending to take a nap in his sleeping bag.

While Brayden was taking a nap, Sienna had time to check out the sofa, too!

Brayden and Sienna had lots of fun opening their Valentines Day presents from Grandma & Grandpa.

In an earlier post I mentioned that Brayden was on a picture strike. Unless I catch him in an action shot, this is how he "smiles" for the camera! Doesn't he look so sad????

Sienna found Brayden's box of Legos! Somehow she managed to pull the box out from under the coffee table and take the lid off...of course the legos went right into her mouth.

The Rocking Lion
We thought Sienna would have fun riding on Brayden's rocking lion, but all she really wanted to do was play with the lion's mane...

Sooooo much fun! Shopping with 2 young little ones can be a challenge for sure. I was picturing your shopping cart and laughing along with you. Kids are soooo much fun. Thanks for sharing.
See you at MOMS,
