Thankful Thursday

I originally titled this post, "What we've been up to...", but as I went through all the pictures I wanted to add to this post, I realized how thankful I am for all that we've been up to.

Our babysitter, Anne. Although we had to give her up for the regular
morning gig, we still have her sit for us on other occasions.
It's so great to have someone we can call,
who the kids LOVE.

Time spent with friends. We've done lots of fun activities with
our friends, which is such a joy - for the kids and for ME.
Goofing around with Grace and Hadley,
after a sushi dinner.

Train Town with my good friend Nancy from Sacramento,
and her twin boys, Rhys and Otto.

Children's Fairyland and backyard fun with my girl, Katie
and her girls, Isabel and Grace.
(who are almost exactly the same ages as my girls)

More backyard fun with Grammy and the bunnies.

Preschool field trip to a farm. Can I tell you how hard it was
to explain to my girls why we couldn't bring any baby
chickens home with us?

Seesa's first official rabbit show! She got to try out
showmanship with her lop-eared bunny, "Snowflake",
and her little miniature bunny, "Sweet" won first place in her class.
The day brought back great memories for me of my 4-H days.
I'm so glad they love it as much as I did (do).

We saw this at another 4-H event at a historic state park in our area.
I thought it was beautiful.

We've got about 50 eggs getting ready to hatch... are you SURE some chicks can't come live at your house?

I just love the bathing beauties! You're right - so much to be grateful for. No matter what else is going on, I try so hard not to forget that.

Chris said...

Looks like you guys have a lot of fun. We need to do a better job at that. For us, it just a matter of herding 3 kids into doing things.
