Y'all Are About to be Jealous

I interrupt this crazy, busy, blogging-free month of August for some excitement that just can't wait to be shared.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to meet up with some other adoptive families. I just can't tell you how refreshing it is to spend time with other people who have families just like ours. Each time I have met another blogger/adoptive mom the relationship goes from being "cyber" to "in-real-life" seamlessly. It is not at all like meeting strangers, but old friends.

So the amazing and wonderful Sarah hosted a fantastic meal at her home and we were lucky enough to be invited. All the kids played beautifully together while the moms and dads talked and talked and talked. Bliss!

Thanks ladies for an incredible day!

OH! I think this is my favorite picture! I look like I actually have a figure! ;-)

It was so awesome meeting & spending time with you. Can't wait to do it again!

that looks wonderful. I do love how easy it is to just hang out with our bloggy friends after chatting online for awhile. It is truly special.

Me too. Totally jealous. Especially since I had a chance last week and had to pass it up! All the kids miss Mercy! We must try again soon!

Many thanks to you and your wonderful family for heading over our way! We LOVED meeting you and we simply must do it again soon. My girls absolutely adored Delaney and Mercy, too :) And I adore Delaney for teaching Hatfield her super brilliant-evil (there is always such a fine line between brilliant and evil, is there not?) "naptime" game!!!

Love ya,

You are all adorable - and yes! I'm dying of envy.

Hmm, you definately have the best camera! I love the artistic slant of the pic.
Nice to meet you and your family! I may have to borrow that Delaney some time as it appears she is quite brilliant. I would like to call her.... The RAD Child Whisperer!
