A few weeks ago, I asked Heath not to forget Valentine's Day. We have never really done anything that special in the past years. It always seemed harder to get a babysitter on that night, than to actually plan anything. But because the movers are coming on the 14th, and we wouldn't know when they would be done, and we would be in a temporary room at lodging, it really wouldn't be a big possibility this year either. Nevertheless, I asked Heath to do something to commemorate the occasion.
He took it to heart, and planned a date for us. It was a secret for me. Now that in itself is a huge thing! Usually, I know all my presents for Christmas ahead of time. I know what I'll get for my birthday. Nothing ever remains a secret, and most of the time, I pick out my own gifts. And as far as dates go, usually I plan them, get the babysitter, etc. This time, he came up with everything on his own. This date, happened last night. We had a blast.
Heath took me to Sacramento where they have a riverboat. On the riverboat, we went to a Murder Mystery Dinner Show! If you know me, you know I love murder mysteries. I have come up with a few for church activities, but I've never actually tried to figure it out before. I was always in on the planning of it. Anyway, it was a blast. Shots rang out. People were dropping like flies. You suspected EVERYBODY. Clues were everywhere, but you had to be watching. It was funny. It made you jumpy. Dinner was good. We had a great time.
Oh, and I figured out the mystery! I got it correct! We had to fill out little sheets of paper that listed who was killed and the reason behind the murder. Five people were killed during the show. I correctly figured out who was the murderer. I was pleased with myself.
Here is a picture of Heath and I right before the show started. If you have a murder mystery show in your area, you should go! I can't say that it will be the same everywhere, but we definitely will be looking for one in our new location.
