Every year (give or take a few) since I was in college, the Rial family has been going to Sho Gun for my cousin Megan's birthday. She has a Valentine's birthday, so we always go Valentine weekend. Our family has shrunk in a few ways and grown in a few ways since we started going, but it's always fun.
We went on Saturday and we always take a cousin picture:) Here are a few of them from years past...we've changed quite a bit!
2012 (this year Heidi decided to join us!)
Now, three of us can take one with our hubbies:)
Last year Lucas was so tiny, it was hard to enjoy it, but this time we enjoyed it and so did he! Here he is with Mimi watching the fire:) He thought it was so cool!
He got his own little plate full of chicken, rice and mushrooms and he did so well!
He had fun with Uncle Callen and Aunt Cassie, too:)
Mommy's Little Valentine
Afterward, Nick, Lucas, Cassie, Callen, Mom, Tim, and I headed to Cassie and Callen's for a Valentine Party:) She had it decorated so cute with lots of red and heart-shaped goodies, but I forgot to take pics:( She did have us decorate Valentine's to wear so that was fun:) I decorated for Nick, and vice versa.
Here's the Balmos'!
And here's Lucas' Valentine loot from Uncle Callen and Aunt Cassie!
A Bass Pro hat and a dog from Build-a-Bear! So sweet and he loved it:)
It was a great weekend and perfect to spend with my family whom I love very much:)
