Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We don't usually do a lot on Valentine's Day. We like to just spend some good quality time together as a family instead of buying each other presents. So today, we planned to go to the Discovery Green Park downtown and have a picnic. We had never been before and heard that it was great! We weren't sure if the weather was going to cooperate, but it showed us a small window without rain, so we took a chance and headed to the park.
First we sat down and ate. We brought a picnic blanket and everything, but seeing that there were nice little tables and chairs there to sit at, we decided that would be better. Ashlyn enjoyed her heart PB&J sandwich!

Then, we walked around and enjoyed the park and playground. I loved the playground there because it was different from most neighborhood parks. Of course there were slides, but there was also this netted thing to jump on and things to bang on and play music. Ashlyn, of course, made some friends with these older girls that were so sweet and played ring-around-the-rosy with her. It was very cute! Ashlyn loved it!

Oh and I did make Ashlyn a little ladybug, which she loved! I got the pattern from Amy Butler's Little Stitches sewing book. Very cute! I thought it turned out pretty good!

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!
