Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for:

1.  A nice family dinner out to celebrate the end of school.  We probably go out to a sit down restaurant with the kids twice a  year.  We love going to Red Robin for their family-friendly atmosphere and this year we had a gift card!  Nya was a big fan on giving the thumbs-up with the mascot.

2. A reader.  Kai took his time finishing the 4th Harry Potter book.  He was enjoying it too much that he wanted to savor it.

3.  Gary and the boys cheering me on.  I appreciate it!

4.  These two having each other.  I love seeing their brotherly relationship continue to grow.  I think they learn a lot about working as a team when they are together.  One is a little more team orientated than the other.

5.  A girl who keeps up with her brothers.  There's always some American Ninja Warrior training going on.

6.  A good book to read.  Cutting For Stone was really good.  Book club is great, too!

7.  An upcoming vacation.  We are having a very simple summer holiday this year because we went to Disney World and Las Vegas just a few months ago.  We will be camping in Tofino at the lovely Bella Pacifica and then going to the beautiful Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort!

8. A fan on our bedroom ceiling.

9. Another book to read.  So far it's an easy, quirky read.

10. An awesome night out at Disney's The Lion King. I had won 4 tickets through Moments in Mommyland. I wasn't sure how I would feel about it as I don't attend a lot of musicals but this was so enjoyable--I loved it!  Gary did too.  I loved the costumes.  I loved the use of light and silhouettes.  I would definitely pay to see it.

I hope that you are having a good week!  Please let me know something that you are thankful for today!  Attitude of gratitude, folks!
