Days 143, 144, 145 & 146

We had such an incredible weekend! We met 6 other families that we traveled to China with when we adopted our older daughters in Pittsburgh for the weekend. We have travel group reunions about twice a year and have been doing this for 6 years. We couldn't feel more blessed to have such wonderful friends, we live so many miles apart, but all value the friendship so much that we have been able to remain close. Our girls (and the adults too!) are sooo sad when they have to leave their "China Friends" to go home. I really wanted to post a picture of all the kids (there were 14 together this weekend!) but I didn't ask for permission from all the families. So here is Lucy with her dad at the amusement park that we took all the girls to...

and Kate having fun mothering a little girl in the group that is actually letting her (Lucy gets a little tired of it! LOL!)...

and Lucy zonked out in the car on the way home after not getting much sleep over the weekend...

and just a cute smile from Kate to round it all out! :)


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Love Lucy's chubby thighs and Kate's beautiful smile!

  2. I know what you mean about being sad to leave your Chinese friends. We have our "chinese cousins" that we get to see every summer. It's always to hard to leave them...

  3. Keeping in touch with travel mates is so meaningful and you are blessed to have such a great group.

  4. Sounds like a GREAT weekend!! A travel group is one thing I wish we had for EmmaLi's sake but we didn't want to wait a month for the next group to travel.

  5. What a gift to get to do that twice a year! and can I just say I LOVE the tiny little toes peeking out from Kate's baby's dress?

  6. you are really blessed to have such wonderful friends!! That´s a great gift!

    Sounds you had a wonderful time - your shots are beautiful!
