Turn Valentine's Day into a Weekend of Family Fun!

Valentine’s Day. Some reveal in it. Some revile it. And when you’re kidless—whether your chick has left the nest for college, or said chicks have been tucked under Grandma’s watchful wing—Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful chance to spend a few precious hours alone with your husband or wife.

But when you Grandma’s off on a hot date of her own and can’t take the chicks, you may have to make Valentine’s Day a family event. Not to despair! There are countless ways to celebrate the day of love with your children right here in the OC. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, you can even make an entire weekend out of gazing affectionately into each other’s eyes. If you’re taking the love-is-in-the-air route with your kids, here are some ways to make your Valentine’s celebration unforgettable.
