Valentime's Day Brick
Grandpa Chuck is a senior Olympia and, despite terrible back problems, is in great shape. He's gold medal'ed many times over the years. My mom is very active and has the blessing of good genes. I think that they both look really young and healthy for their age. Now don't they look like the kind'a couple you want to be when you're hitting 70?
Emily was the one who figured out that the box was a Valentines gift and quickly tore into it. I'm not sure if you can see, but it's a HUGE thick slab of chocolate with the words "Love, Grandma & Grandpa" written across it in red.
Needless to say, there was no keeping the little girls from such a treasure! It was certainly a wonderful gift and they're still enjoying it today. Are those not the faces of some REALLY happy kids?
Of course, Dad just couldn't resist taking a small bit himself. And boy howdy, it was yummy. I hope you have a great Valentine's Day too. My girls certainly did.
Tell 'em to save a chunk for momma. Preferrably NOT the chunk in the middle that all their warm little hands have hung onto. Ick. Nothin' like melted chocolate full of fingerprints, hair, and lint.
