Making dreams come true
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. . .

Tweetsie Railroad!

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,~
~jail time,~
~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!

So glad you all found time to build more family memories! I'm sure this was a day the whole family (well, perhaps not the youngest prince) will hold in their hearts for years to come. -- Love you all so much.

Tweetsie!!! We love that place. Have a friend who owns a house in Boone, literally 10 mins from Tweetsie, and he lets us camp out there, so we try and go up a few times a year w/ the family. My bf's family lives just a short ways from there and I have come to love being in the NC mts more than any other place. We've talked about moving up to the Boone/Beach Mt area once we marry. How exciting that y'all got to experience it for yourselves! Tweetsie, not marriage. *grin* Hope y'all can make it back to our great state for more NC fun.

I loved and totally agree with your last comment about God giving us the desires of our hearts. I love seeing my children happy and sometimes over indulge their whims. But oh the thought, that my Heavenly Father loves spoiling me too. And I must say, He does an awesome job at it.
