We aren't known for our 'holiday' plans as we usually don't have any. But last minute, I got a message from a friend today wanting to know if we wanted their tickets to the circus for today. I ran the idea past Hubby, thinking we'd probably just stay home and get things done around the house, but he said sure, let's go. We quickly got things in gear, got dressed and out the door to get the tickets. I am so glad we did. What a fun day! Lil Man enjoyed it (although he did get tired before it was over). It's been awhile since we've had a family outing that was just purely for fun. I don't consider getting groceries as a family as a 'fun family outing.'. :) We ended our fun circus trip with a stop by the the local ice cream shop. Lil Man is still wearing his chocolate ice cream face. I'm sitting on the deck, enjoying the sounds of Hubby and Lil Man working on a project. I do believe this is a true feeling of contentment.
