Happiness is ______ {Week 16} #happinessis

Happiness can be found everywhere if you look hard enough.  While last week was pretty dreadful, when the weekend came around, it was nothing but smiles around here

David had promised us a fun filled weekend.  And he did not disappoint. First things first, we had to drop off Bruce...

Happiness is knowing he is going to be loved forever!

Oh how we miss him.  He was our foster Dane and stayed with us for 3 weeks.  Its crazy how much happiness this little big guy brought us in those weeks.  But the day came to send him off to his new home. And while it was sad to leave him we were all super happy that he found a family to love him til the end of his days!

Then it was Movie time!  We have started movie time at the house during the day but David surprised us with tickets to see Despicable Me 2.  Talk about funny. The boys got popcorn...and candy and we had a blast.  They were pretty impressed by the 3D too!

Happiness is these two jumping back at the 3D action on screen!

After the movies we needed to drain all the sugar out of our boys, who were convinced they were minions! So off to the zoo we went.  Alex just wanted to see the elephant.  He has told everyone he can that an elephant weighs as much as 6 slug bugs (VW Beetles).  I guess it was on a sign somewhere and his brother read it for him!  He said that makes him happy because he loves elephants and slug bugs.  Hey what ever works.  We had to leave my happy place for last.  The snake house!  I LOVE it in there.  And I always leave with a ridiculous smile on my face!

Happiness is finding beauty in everything.  Even your biggest fear!

After the Zoo we went to Grandmas house.  It was her birthday so the boys had some cake and ice cream before a certain 8 year old realized that mom wasn't kidding about to much sugar making you sick!  Poor kid!

Sunday David had to work, which is another chance to see the bright side.  Even though it took a chunk our of our fun filled weekend, his job is what allows us to enjoy things like movies and trips to the zoo.  As soon as he got home though, the fun continued. Off to the dog park we went.

Happiness is the way he gets so excited when he realizes we are going to the dog park

So in the end, it was a fun and happiness filled weekend.  What made you happy this week?  Summer is almost over.  How did that happen?  Its crunch time to get everything checked off so go out and have some fun!  Be happy:)  Dont forget to stop by Crazy Adventures in Parenting and see whats making Lisa and others happy!!
