Making Plans

This Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday, as you are probably well aware of. This being our first V-day as a married couple, we are excited that we have the whole day off together. I'm getting excited about spending the entire day together. While it is NOT unusual that we spend an entire Saturday together, it is, however, unusual that we will NOT be cleaning, doing laundry, or organizing our condo in some form or fashion. Let me just go ahead and make that clear...THERE WILL BE NO CLEANING ON VALENTINE'S DAY. And THAT, my friends, is reason enough to celebrate. We were trying to think of fun, inexpensive ideas to do during the day. Here are a few ideas:

Since we don't want to leave our beloved son at home all day, we thought the three of us would head on over to the local dog park. We actually have not been to this one, so it will be fun to try a new place. And hopefully Conner will love it, too, because even dogs need a little Valentine Love.

Another idea is going to the ZOO. We won't be bringing Conner to the Zoo but since he will be worn out from the dog park, we will bring him home for a nap with the kitties. Buie and I haven't been to the Little Rock Zoo in about two years, but we had the best time when we did go. Also, I took so many great pictures last time I was there and this will give me a great excuse to take more pictures! Animals are the best subjects for some awesome photography! Here are a few pictures from the last time we went to the Zoo in 2006.

To end the day, I'm sure we'll try a new restaurant here in town. Any suggestions??

What are you doing for Valentines Day? Do you have any other fun ideas for our "Date Day?" Do tell, please?! We are always looking for new and fun ideas and ways to spend time together.
