The same day as the Birthday Party Expo (see last post) the Circus was in town, too. Matt and I decided to get crazy and let the kids take a little nap in the car and then just head to the circus, too. Why stop the fun, right?
As we were walking in we passed the elephants (thanks to Matt's good eyesight)! I am just in awe of how huge they really are!!
Here is my sweet family waiting for the circus to start! We got there at least 15 minutes early so we got to practice our patience.
Watching the show.
Okay I have to tell this story. The acrobat ladies came out and they were dressed in hot pink and sparkles. Y'all...that is Lilly's favorite combination in the history of the world! Her eyes lit up and she moved to the edge of her seat and she was in awe. They did a dance...
and then got up on this. I swear I almost saw stars in her eyes. She said in a very sloooow and dramatic tone, "Mommy, what are they?" I told her they were acrobats and she said--pausing after ever word and still just in awe--"That. Is. What. I. Want. To. Be. When. I. Grow. Up!!!!" And she said a minimum of 100 times, "They are sooooo beautiful. Mommy aren't they beautiful? Daddy aren't they so beautiful?" And when their performance time was over I thought she was going to break her hand, wrist, or even her arms because she was clapping so hard. She was truly moved. And, so, if in a few years I have to tell you that my child travels with the circus...know it all started here.
She also made me take a picture of this girl because she was her favorite. Ha!
My favorite part was the dog show. This big poodle pushed a little Chihuahua around in that car. Hilarious!
We had a great time and I am so glad we decided to add a little extra crazy to our day and go!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
