Thankful on Thursday

In some of my earlier blogs this week I mentioned that the Cherry Blossom Festival is this week in our area. Every day they have cherry ice cream, cherry coke and horse carriage rides.... all for free! Today was the only day we would be able to go and we woke up to RAIN. Needless to say the kids were bummed... esp. since i messed up a field trip earlier in the week.

I decided to go ahead into town to see if by some chance the rain would stop long enough to get our freebies!!! After riding by the spot, we saw no one anywhere. I called my brother and found out that the festivities had been moved to an indoor location. Yea! We had a blast. It is always more fun when the stuff is free! Right? We got our cherry ice cream, cherry coke and ate and drank while riding on the carriage, it was covered! Doesn't get much better than that!! I am so thankful that we were able to have fun even on a gloomy day!
