Happy Valentine's Day!

The three of us enjoyed our day. We had pancakes for breakfast, as it was Saturday. I attempted to make a few heart-shaped pancakes, but they came out all lopsided so I quickly went back to circles. For next year I'm going to have to find a heart-shaped pancake thing. Then we went to Gramma and Papa's house just to say hi and played there for awhile. Then to our favorite restaurant, Blossoming Lotus, for a wonderful lunch together. So good! And we shared vanilla vegan soft-serve ice cream.
Then onto Powell's bookstore to use some of our gift certificates. We got a few Curious George books and a Clifford the Big Red Dog for Jake. We also got some maps of hiking trails in Forest Park, here in Portland, and another guidebook for day hikes around Portland. We wanted more books but Powell's was more crowded than I had ever seen, and Jake was heading towards a nap-deprived tantrum, so we left.

Aunt Amy had sent Jake this really cute outfit for Valentine's Day, but when I attempted to get a picture, Jake immediately threw himself on the floor and wouldn't look up, so this is the best I have right now.

Hey, we also had some of their vanilla vegan soft serve on Valentines! We made an after-dinner stop for some, and River was in heaven! :)
