This is a dual post, since Blogger decided to eat my weekend post, including the pictures. My weekend was a great deal of fun with the kids, but it was too cold for April. Other than that, we all had fun and enjoyed being away from the normalness of home for a couple of days. We ate, ate, swam, ate, went to a show, ate, went to the flea market, and did I say, that we ate? Here are a few pictures.
This is the stream behind the hotel. It would have been fun to wade in if it was warmer. See the ducks? They were so cute!You know it’s cold if the horses have to wear their coat/blanket. This was outside of the Dixie Stampede. The horses are just so beautiful!
This is me and the kids at the aquarium. See the pigtails on the girls? KA thought that I should wear pigtails, too, but my hubby forbid it. I compromised with the ponytail. The Aquarium of the Smokies is a must see if you have kids. There is a tube that you ride a escalator-type belt through and the sharks, stingrays, and other fish swim above and around you-very cool. Of course, my favorite part was the flea markets. It was cold and rainy, but flea markets are fun anyways-especially indoor ones!
1. I am thankful that God loves me. I don’t deserve it in any way, but He is still right there waiting on me.
2. I am thankful for the time I got to spend with my hubby and kids this weekend. We don’t get to do that very often, because hubby works so much, so I am thankful for a stolen weekend away.
3. I am thankful for my mom. She is so good to me and my kids. I am thankful that we made it through my teenage years to become friends now.
4. I am thankful for my friends. They make me feel loved and needed. I only hope that I give them the same.
5. I am thankful for my home.
6. I am thankful for my work. I am behind this week, but I am thankful that I have clients that continue to allow me to work with them. I am a very blessed woman to get to work at home.
Thankfulness can make you more appreciative of what you have. To read more thankful posts, visit our wonderful host, Iris
