Valentine's Day in Pensacola

With Son's new position he is now traveling 50% of the time. We miss him, but he is usually in Pensacola and this week we decided to tag along and see family :). We were able to celebrate Vietnamese New Year and Valentine's Day all in one trip!

The kids enjoyed helping Ba Noi make spring rolls (even though none of them would eat one).

Then we made Valentines cookies! I tried a new sugar cookie recipe from Pinterest, and it turned out great! The kids were so excited to show off their masterpieces :)

Collin's First Crush

Collin has made me smile with some of the comments he had made about girls before the time I asked him if he had fun with his babysitter & he replied, "Miss Candace has really long legs!!"

Or the time when he referred to a girl in his class as his "special friend" because she "has really long hair".

However this time I think it's serious. Our conversation in the car on the way home from school today:

Collin: Mommy, when I get to be a daddy I am going to marry Miss V!!!

Me: Collin, Miss V is about to marry someone else. When you grow up you will find the right girl to marry...

Collin: maybe we can just go to Miss V's house! Do you know where she lives?

Me: no, I don't know where she lives.

Collin: You can use the GPS mommy!!

Me: usually we just see our teachers at school. But I know that Miss V will be so excited to see you Monday!

Collin: can we get a picture of her mommy?

I love that sweet little boy :). Of course we will be asking Miss V if I can take their picture together on Monday! I am sure she won't mind, she loves Collin too :)
