V-Day and P-Day

Valentine's Day came to the Wilson household and there was a lot of love in the air. The day got started with the girl's receiving their Valentines. Ginny got an alligator because she's been singing a song about an aligator snapping monkeys out of a tree. It may sound morbid but it is a pretty catchy tune. Vi got a Valentine book.
Mom made some nifty home-made fortune cookies for Dad. She baked in some warm-hearted, extra-mushy love notes. Thanks to Shalece Fiack for the idea! They were yummy!
For their big V-day date Mom and Dad headed to the most romantic place on Earth. That's right, the temple. We had previous reservations at a nice restaurant, but then we found out their V-day menu was $125 dollars a plate. Didn't see that comin'. So we did a last minute change. Here we are after returning from our favorite local italian restaurant.
Ben decided to not work on a Monday holiday for once. So we headed for the hills to try our hands (and feet) at cross-country skiing. We went with the experienced Matt, one of Ben's friends from work, pictured below with fiance Anna.
We made it up to Kendall's knob without a hitch. Surprisingly the going up was the easy part. It was the going down that was a bit tricky. We'll say Bri is still a little sore today and leave it at that. All in all we had a great time.

The temple was definitely a better choice. I actually miss snow too! What's that all about?
