Superhero Valentine’s Day Family Breakfast

One thing that you will notice on this blog, is all the magic that we add to every holiday.  Before we had kids, Valentine’s Day was insignificant and well just plain boring.  I knew we needed to jazz it up a bit.  So we began adding traditions like Valentine’s mailboxes and Love Buckets.  Next, we incorporated a fun themed dinner.  It started out as a simple heart theme but I could never settle with just that.  Probably because I felt that I had to add a little something extra to get my boys excited about it too.  The tradition of a themed Valentine’s dinner began.
All the hearts, roses, pinks,and reds should be enough of a theme for Valentine’s Day.  However, one year we added mustaches to the hearts for ‘I mustache you to be my Valentine’ and last year was Star Wars themed.  The boys really loved it.  Check out all the details of this year’s superhero Valentine’s breakfast below.

PAW Patrol Adventure Play Exhibit


Raise your paw if your family loves PAW Patrol.  PAW Patrol plays on a continuous loop on our TV most of the time.  It has been a staple TV show throughout the toddler years in our house and they still watch it to this date.  So when we heard that the PAW Patrol exhibit was opening at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, we knew we had to go and check it out.
All our pups were ready for action in their best PAW Patrol gear.  The boys’ adorable vest were made by Lois Singer from Made By Ya shop on Etsy.  My husband and I had to get in on the fun as Skye and Zuma.  I know what your are thinking, but my hubby actually asked for his own vest and character and I happily obliged.  Isn’t he the best?!

There are baskets for Easter, stockings for Christmas, trick or treat bags for Halloween and Valentine’s just seemed like it was missing something.  What about Valentine’s Day??  So I scrolled the internet to find something, anything to fill that void.  I stopped scroll on love buckets.  The ones that I saw were just plain but a light bulb went off in my head.  Surprising I know.  I took the idea and ran with it.
