The Best Valentines Day EVER!

Well.  We did it!  We went and got Waffles.  It was a group thing.  We even had the kids.  It turned out to be the best place to go!  Everyone was packing into the steak houses and Italian restaurants so The Belgian Waffle and Pancake House was all ours.  After about 30 minutes we were the only people there!  It was awesome!  We laughed so hard that Liz had a hard time eating her waffle ha ha ha.  Brendan was HILARIOUS!  The restaurant gave the kids these Styrofoam cut out things and Brendan stuck his in syrup and then stuck it on Nate's shirt.  It was so funny. He also had the most hilarious things to say ALL NIGHT!

Danielle will appreciate this: At one point I asked Lindsey what Valentines Day means to her and Brendan interjected "BACON!" ha ha ha... Then a bit later he had some bacon pieces, and while moving the pieces like a mouth sang "I am bacon, I am bacon, I am bacon!" ha ha ha.

I brought my big girl camera but forgot to grab a memory card.  FAIL! ha ha ha.  Oh well.  So you are stuck with iPhone pics.  Sorry! ha.  Poor people on Instagram got a rare bombardment of photos from me this evening. Sorry.

Ok.  Here we go.  Valentine's Day in Photograph documentation.
It was funny because their waffle description says "served at room temperature with melted butter and hot syrup" ha ha ha.  I questioned this room temperature thing and the waitresses thought I was making it up or something... then I showed them and they were so confused.  The waffles were served warm for the record. ha.  Time to edit the menu?  I think so.
Meet my brother Anthony!  He is awesome.  He never gives real smiles for the camera, he has done this for as long as I can remember.  I love him though.  He has this way of making a bad day good and a good day better.  I love him for that.
This is Liz.  You may recognize her from her blog Liz Lemon.  She is such a cool person.  I met her through my brother because they are really good friends.  If you don't follow her blog you should.  She is awesome!
This is Hannah and Nate.  Hannah is fantastic and Nate is such a laid back cool guy with a huge heart.  Where these two are involved it's sure to be great times had.  Glad they shared my Waffle Valentines Day with Dave and I.
The kids.  I  love Bren's face here.  They both were having such a fun time.  It took me several shots to get a decent picture because Lindsey gets so awkward in front of the camera... maybe one trait she borrowed from my brother, ha!  Bren was seriously cracking us up all night!
Awe!  Dave and I.  :)  Thanks Hannah for snapping this.  Every time I do a self portrait of Dave and I, I chop off a portion of Dave's face. ha ha ha.  Hannah saved the day.  Love him.
My waffle.  It was sooooooooooooooooo yum.  :)
There was a small debate between Nate and Anthony over which is better.  The HTC Evo or the iPhone 4... What do you think?

Our waitress was awesome!  She talked about liking White Russians (the alcoholic beverage) which had us laughing and talked about how awesome the cooks are for like 5 minutes.  So funny, but I guess you would have had to have been there.

Anyway.  It was great times.  It will go down as one of my favorite Valentine's Days EVER!
