We just had our first Valentine's Day as a married couple and we had SO much fun! Jason planned a surprise for us (although I guessed it early)! He took me to Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, then we walked around 5 Points to a bunch of local shops. For dinner he took me to Sato's Japanese Steak House, my favorite! Perfect first Valentine's!
The oldest of the 3 male Silver Backs at the zoo.
They had my favorite animal on the PLANET!!! She's about a foot away from me.
I could swear this lama almost spit at Jason
These are Walabees, I thought they were Kangaroos but whatever.
This was the cutest Koala bear! He was sleeping most of the time so we couldn't get a good picture.
I finally got the pictures from my mom from when they were in town and we got to celebrate Christmas with them. We had so much fun! Then we cooked a traditional New Years Day meal for lunch and then lounged the rest of the day.

Jason got to try out his new cooker and deep fried a whole chicken for us (there were no turkeys left). It was so good! And dad made turnip greens that i decided to try for the first time in my life...not too bad!
