It's Official

We cancelled our room reservation in Moab last night. We will not be going to Four Corners, the Anasazi Ruins or Arches this year for President's weekend. It is the first time in 3 years that we won't be flying south for the winter. They have been hit so hard with snow and cold weather. As you can see we have been there when there is a little snow on the ground and it makes hiking hard and dangerous. I can't imagine what it would be like this year. 

I won't lie, I'm disappointed, but I know it could have been really messy and we probably wouldn't have had as much fun as we have had in the past. It's for the best.

Instead I am going to beg my mom to keep the kids Friday night so I can take Paul to see Valentine's Day (Can you believe there is a movie I actually want to see?) and then we will get dinner. Maybe Thai. Yum! I live for date nights.

Saturday I plan to celebrate Valentine's Day. I will get everything ready while the kids are with my parents. When they get home the table will be set all cute and festive for them. I've convinced myself it would be too hard to do it on Sunday with church and them there watching, and heaven forbid wanting to help. LOL! 

Sunday after church we will just veg. out and pretend it isn't a holiday. 

That leaves Monday. What can we do? If you have any suggestions on fun, budget friendly things to do in Utah for the day please let me know. Seriously I'm stumped.

Planetarium? Zoo? (I know, it's winter, but some of the animals are super cool to watch in snow.) Family movie?

Total weird brainstorm here...What about going as a family to some place like My Girlfriend's Kitchen and everyone picks something they want to try and make?
