check it out

I think it's safe to say that I am fizzling out on this blog. We've been home 1 year now and the adoption events and news is getting fewer and farther between. So, if you really want to keep up with our daily, crazy lives, check out our Project 365 blog called Foster Family Frenzy. I would love some more followers there! I will continue to update this blog as things happen, but you should really check out our family blog.

Happy Birthday!!

Two little boys celebrated birthdays in June!

Having two so close in age usually means that there are some common interests. And boy, the interest right now is definitely Toy Story. So, they agreed that they wanted a "Buzz and Woody" party.

The boys dressed up as their favorite character (there is never any arguing about who is going to be who. They've had that figured out since the beginning of this phase)

We had a few yard games out and a Buzz slip n' slide for the kids to play on

Some presents had to be opened together!

Mommy and Daddy got the boys new bikes

Happy 2nd Birthday Neylan and Happy 3rd Birthday Grayson!!

Happy Gotcha Day!

June 13th was our first Gotcha Day at home. It was a very busy day for us, but we managed to squeeze in a quick Chinese dinner to celebrate! (There weren't any Korean restaurants around where we needed to be) We had lots of questions from the employees about where he was from, why we adopted, and why we adopted a boy since we already had a boy! It's hard to believe he's been home 1 year already.

Holt picnic

In early June, we went to the annual Holt picnic. Thank goodness it wasn't as hot as last year! I did a horrible job of getting many pictures, so I'll just have to share the few I do have. We had lunch, played on the playground, met a few new friends, and got to catch up with old friends. It was a great afternoon.
