Our Special Guests

Our friends the Lanes came for a visit this weekend. We chose a nice cool activity like Carowinds on a 100 degree day. Boy was it hot! We had a great time despite the heat and managed to cool off in the water park.
The kids enjoyed playing with each other and it was so nice to have them all together again.
Ruby and Samantha were adopted on the same day. We all traveled to China together back in 2006. We have stayed friends ever since. We always get together for our Gotcha Day reunion. This is coming up soon so we will see them again in September. We are looking forward to it.

  1. What a sweet time with friends! Wow - four years really makes a difference!

    Glad you enjoyed your time, even though it was hot - who else can look so adorable sweaty?

  2. Looks like an amazing time!

  3. How fun to remain in contact with someone you traveled with. I traveled alone both of my adoption trips, but oh how I wish I had been part of a group! Beautiful kids......

  4. That is really cool that you all have stayed friends and get a chance to visit with each other!
    What a blessing!!

    Love all the photos - everyone looks so happy & content!

  5. Looks like everyone had a great time despite the heat. How wonderful to have that connection. Thanks for sharing!
