Treasure Hunts and Secret Missions. And Lobster.

It's been quite an interesting Valentine's/Presidents/Snow-Day weekend.  Actually, it isn't over.  Tomorrow is Presidents Day, and there is no school.  I am pretty sure that Daphne hasn't had a whole week of school without at least a delay since the New Year.  It's hard to get into a good groove, but we're making the best of it.  Lots of Olympics-watching and knitting and reading and Legos and so on.

For Valentine's Day, Daphne set up an elaborate treasure hunt for Kev and me.  We followed the clues that eventually led us to a sweet little handmade card.  Daphne is awesome.

This morning, while I was in the shower, Kev and Daphne snuck (or is it sneaked?)  away on a secret mission to get me some donuts!  I don't know if I was more excited about the donuts, or if Daphne was more excited about the secret mission.  Either way, breakfast was delightful.

The early afternoon was less delightful.  Our dryer is broken, so Daphne and I went to the laundromat to dry some clothes.  I hate the laundromat.  It was crowded, and it smelled like scented dryer sheets, and I had a headache when we got home.  

Things got much better, though, later in the day at Ford's Fish Shack, where there are lobster rolls.  Kev and I got a sitter for Daphne, and had a nice relaxing dinner out.  Lobster rolls are the perfect food.    
You can't complain about a day that is bookended with donuts and lobster rolls.

We have a busy busy week coming mom is coming to visit, Girl Scout cookies arrive, Daphne has a school musical, and Kev and I have a cooking class.  I don't think there will be any more snow, so that's good.  I got my one big snow, and now I'm ready for spring.  

I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day and enjoy celebrating the Presidents tomorrow.  I wonder if Daphne will make decorations...
