Family Surprise

On Thursday, June 11th, I came home from my first night at internship to find an envelope on the table that said 'Family Surprise' in Danny's handwriting. I was told I had to wait until the kids got home to open it; they were with their Uncle Ben and Aunt Tina in Woodland Park for the day. As soon as they got home we tore into the envelope (I don't do surprises well!) and this is what we found....

Danny had gotten us tickets to go see the Ringling Bros/Barnum and Bailey Circus! We were so excited! It took some time explaining what the circus was as the kids have never been before. That night a commercial for it came on the TV so that helped the process along! That Sunday we enjoyed lower level seats at the circus. It seemed like we could reach out and touch the animals! The kids laughed and cheered and danced to the music. They each got to pick out a souvenir and we ate slushies in elephant cups that they got to keep. It was such a special memory for our family. Kids faces are priceless! Thanks for a special surprise Danny!
