Happy Valentine's Day!

Just a few photos that make my heart sing! The top is a file photo I got on the internet a few years ago. Thought it was cool. The next was a little surprise Patrick had for me at our hotel room at the Wyndham Gardens in Prescott last night. He bought that heart and had it outside our house to surprise me about 10 years ago. I forgot all about it, but that romantic soul didn't. After arriving in Prescott we took the dogs on a nice hike around our hotel area...it was amazingly unpopulated and had lots of good smells for them to follow. lol. Pat also made reservations at "our place", Murphy's, and we had a lovely dinner. I had the Blackened Sea Bass and Patrick had his usual, Prime Rib. It was terrific, and especially nice because it was 2/13 so not crowded! Afterwards we changed into more comfy clothes and had a nice glass of wine in the hotel lounge. Today after breakfast at the hotel we went back to sleep for a few hours then packed up our Jeep and the dogs and went on a nice long hike in the Prescott National Forest. Even found a little snow on the ground. (Starting Thursday they're supposed to get snow for 4 days...Too bad we missed that.) We had a small lunch at AppleBee's, then to finish off an already wonderful 2 days, we got to visit with our 2 grandchildren. We brought them various little Valentine treats and it was so great to see them both again. Though our granddaughter is almost 14 and g-son 12, they are both really polite and just so lovable. (Okay, they are my grandkids!)
Oh almost forgot. The next photo is of Patrick and me in the hotel lobby. The next 2 are pics he sent me while I was up in Idaho and he was down in Phx. He has that silly heart that I got as a kid at a carnival hanging next to his computer at his work. The bottom photo is an aerial shot of our cabin in Idaho. He can be very romantic at times. That's nice, because I like that kind of thing, and I tend to be less romantic so need some encouragement!
Anyway, we're on our way home to Phoenix now and what a fine time this was. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day too. love, Cassie
