Valentines, Birthdays, and Bieber Fever

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone, especially my Valentine!  Our Valentine's celebration was a trip to Memphis Saturday.  Betty requested a trip to a couple of our favorite restaurants and just a day with the family.  Our first stop was The Olive Garden.

Betty and McKenzie really love The Olive Garden and Matt loves it because he gets to help Mommy with her salad.

After a little shopping and a stop at the cupcake shop, we went to the Paradiso movie theater.  McKenzie has the Bieber Fever and she and Betty were going to see the Justin Bieber movie.  Matt and I had intended to just go to a few stores and kill time until the movie was over, but he decided he wanted to go see Gnomeo & Juliet.  Betty and McKenzie really enjoyed their movie, Matt thought his movie was funny, and I enjoyed my $7.50 nap.  Yes, I followed in my mother's footsteps and fell asleep during the movie.  I didn't make it much past the opening credits but I woke up in time to get us some popcorn and still see the main part of the movie.  Back in 1977, my mother took Andy and me to see Star Wars and slept through the whole thing!

This is the line Betty and McKenzie had to stand in to get into the movie.  The place was crawling with little girls suffering from Bieber Fever!

We finished the day by eating at the Side Porch Steakhouse to cap off a wonderful day!

Valentine's Day is also the birthday of two lovely women in our family.  We'd like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Nana.....

...... and BettyWard.
