Thankful Thursday

This week we have been to the zoo and to a circus. This Thankful Thursday I am thankful that we get to see the smiles and excitement on the faces of three precious kiddos when they do things like this.
Amaya and Paige got to take their first horse ride at the zoo and oh they were so excited.
Jaxson's favorite part of the zoo was the dolphins. The smile he had on his face when they were doing their show was priceless.
We live in a very, very, small country town. A circus came to our town this week. Because it was a small circus we were sitting very close and could see so much more than a big circus. I have never seen Amaya so excited in her life. I don't even think Amaya slept that whole night because she was up thinking about it.
Chris didn't get to go because he had to take some test for work. By the way he LOVES his new job and I am also thankful for that.

My dad was teaching Jaxson how to crack open peanuts by laying them on the bench and hitting it with his fist. The clown saw him and came up and started showing Jaxson he could do it with his head. It happened too fast for me to get a picture but it was so funny. I tried to get Jaxson and Paige to let me take a picture of them with the clown but Amaya was the only one that would do it.
I am also thankful that on days that are really hard with two 3 year olds and a 5 year old that I am crazy enough to want to bring more kiddos home someday.

my word. clowns freak me out. not you, i assume. here's why... they have sucha happy face and big smile painted on... so you can't tell what they are really thinking/feeling. what if they are actually really evil and starring at you like you're an idiot - you can never tell. and that messes with me.
glad y'all had fun!
