I had a good Valentine's day! First, my old roommate from BYU-Hawaii, Adrian, and her husband, Kashif, came down for a wedding but made a stop to come visit with me! We've had so many good times and it is just fun to be reunited with old friends.Here is a picture of us with our other roommates, Jamie and Jane, back in Hawaii. We always did silly things together like braiding each others hair for a dance.
Then when Bret came home from work we dropped Kien off at a friends house to babysit him. They have a little girl named Sophie that is Kien's age and I watch her too so we just trade off when we need to. Bret's boss (the parent's of Sophie) gave us a $40 gift certificate to Ninja's for Bret's Christmas bonus. We saved it for Valentine's day. It was so much fun! It was Hibachi (which I've never done before) and we had a chef cook right in front of us. He made a volcano of onions with fire coming out of it. He also threw shrimp at us to catch in our mouths. Poor Bret missed twice so I just fed him one of my shrimp. (This is not our actual chef but I didn't get a picture so I just ripped this off the internet. Close enough.)Bret and I realized that this was probably the first time that we've gone out just the two of us since Kien was born! I love my little guy but it was really nice to just be alone with Bret. We held hands and I just felt, I dunno, connected I guess. Now I see why people say that parent's should go out on a date alone once a week. Maybe when we're rich and can afford to go out and have a babysitter. I actually forgot our camera for a date so we had to get a picture with Bret's cell phone so sorry for the image quality.
Afterwards we just went and walked around the new Walgreen's. When I went in it felt like I was back in Maryland on my mission. We always went to CVS and Walgreen stores out there. I don't remember why. Maybe to develop pictures. But I hadn't been in one since then. Then we went to pick up Kien from his date with little Sophie.
It was a good day.
