I feel bad, blogging our Valentine's Day activities from half a month ago!! I am THAT behind. Oops! BOGO week was such a blessing and a busy time, so I am giving myself some grace. So many of you joined our Oil Team and I am so excited about that! :)
So for Valentines Day this year, we had a date night earlier in the week at a restaurant called Sky Bistro. Oh my word, it was amazing!
Dale and I got fixed up to meet my brother Chad, sis in law Lauren and step momma, Drea for a FUN night out on the town!
My pixie grow out is going ok, but not great....so I had to quick think of a way to pin back the akwardly long short sides. (does that even make sense? different blog for a different day)
The menu was phenomenal! Upscale asian food, and because of a mix up on our fried rice, we got a FREE dessert platter of bread pudding and some kind of funnel cake fries with drizzle. Mmmm!
My funny little Valentines and the love of my life, hid love notes all over the RV for me to find. Precious! 😍🍓
4 Oaks Academy students attended their second ever, fancy lunch for their Valentine's Day party, and they loved every minute of it....I sent them out to work and play and got started with food prep.
The restaurant was the oh so fancy "La Cruiset a la Rv Désirer". (None of us actually knew what they meat except fancy cuisine in the desired RV, but it sounded ritzy.)
Dale and I carefully set the table, poured the bubbly, and went to see if there was a line at the door for lunch service....yup!
On the kids' assigned spots was a clue, as to where their valentines treat was hidden, around the RV.
The menu included: (you have to read it in a fancy french voice)
*Mini tea sandwiches in both egg salad & cream cheese cucumber dill
*Veggie a la raw (you had to take one of every color, chefs orders)
*Raspberry lemonade jigelette
*Le Puffs of de Cheese
There was a Strawberry Creme Tarte next to each plate, and a glass of Cranberry Bubbly.
Prayer and then CHEERS!! Time to eat!
They sure had some crazy wait staff! One of the waiters even got fired I hear! 🤣😂 (Several times.)
Riiiight, Dale Ferguson?!
After they went on their scavenger hunt for their chocolate hearts (no pics, sorry) it was arts and crafts time!
Last surprise was the Valentine's Olympics!!!! ☀️
First event: Relay Run
Race to rake leaves till the pile is as high as your ankle, run to tag your partner.
Partner has to find a silver torch (spoon), poked in the ground before proceeding.
Run "torch" to your awaiting team and together run with it and clang swing handle.
Second event: Water Relay
Using a spoon or lid, run relay style to fill up your measuring cup.
Fullest at the end of 2 minutes - wins!
Girls pulled the Gold at the last minute by 1/4 a cup.
Third event: Partner Color Guard
Link arms with partner and never let go.
Race from color to color as they are hollered out by the announcer.
You must both touch the color!
So hysterical to watch them, they loved it! :)
My thoughtful kiddos begged to get Grammy a Valentine gift so she would feel happy on Valentine's Day too......look what they picked out!
They displayed it on the table so she was sure to see it as SOON as she got home. :)
It was a happy Valentines Day, all the way around....
