David did some traveling over the weekend which meant the boys and I were home by ourselves. Saturday we mostly just hung out at home and then when it rained that evening we decided to have supper outside on the carport. Cruz wanted peanut butter on flour tortillas. Ben asked for a jelly sandwich. I ended up eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made out of Eggo waffles. They loved eating outside and watching the rain fall down.

The three of us before going to church on Sunday morning in Chiquimula.
Here is a video of the kid's share time during the service.
I took them out to lunch at McDonald's and then we headed home for naps. As soon as they woke up we headed back into town to attend the afternoon circus in Chiquimula. Our family loves the circus! It is definitely one of our favorite things.

My boys with the youngest circus clown. It was hot that day (like all days around here) but Cruz insisted on wearing blue jeans. About half way through the circus he was rolling his pants up. He is never going to learn that his mama knows what is best! ha
Here is a short video of the clowns with the snake and then Ben walking up to pet it.
My brave little boy! He does not get that from me. I would never, ever, ever, ever, ever touch a snake on purpose.
Afterwards they let groups go up and have their photo taken with the snake. Oh my oh my!
We returned home for baths and bedtime but before I could tuck Ben in he sneaked into the school room and decorated his face with a red marker. I can't ever get a break with these two!

They tire me out, there is no doubt about that, but they also make my life so much fun. I wouldn't trade these years for anything!
