Happy Valentine's Day!

What a great Valentine's day! We took the kids to Grandma's (Pat's mom) so Pat and I could go out. Pat took me to 'Fleming's' in downtown SLC. It is an awesome steakhouse and we had the BEST food. I can still taste it! MmmmmM! Then he took me to Kingsbury Hall at the U and we got to hear Jim Brickman in concert. It was so incredible! I loved every minute of it!!! He is so talented and you just get lost when you hear him play. You think about the important things and life sort of gets put into perspective. It made me think of my wonderful family and how blessed I am. There is just something about music that really touches me. Sadly, I have NO musical talent. I can barely hold a tune and singing at church and along with the radio is about all I can do. In fact, on the way to Gma's we were all singing in the car. Lukas wanted us to sing the Shrek song (All Star by Smashmouth) and the Little Mermaid song. Anyway, Pat and I were singing our hearts out (Pat was singing in this loud, low base voice and didn't really know the words, so he'd wait for my lead and I was laughing so hard that I couldn't sing) and we were laughing and having so much fun. I'm sure we sounded horrible, but it was one of those small moments where we connected with the boys and forgot about everything else and just had fun. I know I'll look back at the memory and be glad I took the time to write it down. It was a great night. When we picked the kids up, they were so happy to see us and I felt my heart melt. It was a great Valentine's Day! P.S. Jim Brickman had David Klinkenberg touring with him. He was AMAZING! He plays the Celtic Violin (he called it the fiddle) and OH MY GOSH...I was ready to cry listening to him, he was so good! I looooooved it! I had no idea music could make me feel like that. You gotta check him out.
