    Jump for Joy Linclon Military Housing gets Kudos

    Advertisements
    [from my family]

    Thanks to them our family has been able to do a number of things that are actually quite fun. This weekend is no exception.

    Tonight they had an event where they showed a movie 'Rio', and even had a guy out there with Macaws (like the ones in the movie) . I couldn't get enough of them. Keira and I got to pet one, and even got kisses from one.

    Here's a photo of me holding one GAH! I could hold it all day if it would let me.



    Then, tomorrow I get to cross off another bucket list item. Jeesh 3 amazing things in one month and it's not even the 15th yet! (Run a 1/2 marathon (not related to LMH), hold an exotic bird, and then tomorrow I get to go ziplining over the Wild Animal Park

    Never been before, and scare crapless, but I'm doing it!

    I put my name in the lottery, and was on the waiting list and got chosen! Here's to hoping I come home .



    ETA: when the guy came over for Keira to pet the bird, I had already told her "not on the head, don't pull the tail" and so when she simply gently petted him, the guy was amazed. Even commented that it's nice parents can teach their kids at such a young age that they need to be gentle . In my mind I was thinking "I ain't raised no heathen"

    and yes, I used the word

    This one does. He doesn't get rewarded for tricks with snacks, but with hugs and kisses. So he returns them
