On Friday, I ended the blissful sleep of two boys.
What a mean mother I am! :-)
It was a good trade though as we hopped in the van and headed for. . .
For months, Ethan had begged to ride on a train and a Ferris wheel,
and I actually found a place to make those wishes come to pass.
I cannot remember the last time I was so
excited about taking the boys somewhere!
Their reaction was no disappointment as they
fell in love with the place and want to return.
It was a day filled with -
~ train rides,~
~drama along the train route,~
~lots of historical pieces,~
~Lone Ranger and Tonto,~
~and more rides.
Ethan was bursting with anticipation
as he slid into the seat of the Ferris wheel!~
~Lots of slobber from the petting zoo.~
~At the end of the day, we had a
very tired (and cinder speckled) traveler.~
As we drove home in the midst of two boys' happy chatter,
I couldn't help but think that just as we love our children
He also delights in bringing us the desires of our hearts!
And that, my friends, is a beautiful thought!
