Summer Fun

Adalyn loves to play dress up. So I snapped a few pictures of her the other day in her dress up attire. We are having the most fun filled summer. We met Missy and her family for dinner while they where in town, they are the sweetest! Paige is as cute in person as pictures. Dalton and her found out they can both roll their tongues. I think there could be something in the works. :o)
We have hung out with Leslie and Cynthia. Leslie is on the road to mending and I've enjoyed time with her kids. Cynthia has a new daughter and it has been so much fun having a little one around again.
We hope everyone is enjoying the summer and making great memories with their families.

I Promise

I promise to love this amazing child that God has chosen to be my daughter for as long as I live.

We finalized our adoption on Wednesday. I have thought about how I would put all this into words, I don't know that there are words that would do it justice, so I'm going to keep it simple. Doug and I promised in front of God, the judge and our family and friends to be the best parents we can be to this amazing child. We finally closed one chapter in our journey and opened a new, Amen.

Here are some pictures that Leslie took to capture some of the excitement from our big day. Thanks to everyone who shared in our joy, we are blessed beyond measure.

Happy 4th

Look at our little firecrackers, aint they cute!
We had a great time Saturday celebrating the 4th. It rained off and on but that didnt stop us from enjoying great company and fireworks. The kids had a great time playing nerf guns and us adults played couple corn hole. Leslie and Larry rock! But me and Doug are ready for a rematch. Felicia and Stu aren't bad either. Felicia was awesome for her first time, but she's a lefty, I'm sure thats why! :o) Carolin didn't try her hand at it, her partner wasn't feeling well, we hope Brian is feeling better. Be sure to check out the other blogs, they got some great pictures of our fun evening.
Also stop by Cynthia's blog, they are in China getting a baby sister for Marlee. We cant wait for them to get home and celebrate God's beautiful work.
