Mixing in with family and friends

Our girls don't leave mom and dad's side very often, or for very long.
They stick to us like glue. Although, they are starting to venture out,
slowly but surely...

Beautiful Silver Lake ~Sophie and Sage adore their brothers!

"Pinned Ya" (Sophie and Nick)

Love the tire swing with Trevor

and Brianna

Way to go Tami! She is the first person that they went to on their own (besides family). They know a good friend when they see them!

Family & Friends throw us a shower...

These girls have never been so loved and had so much.
We really enjoyed this evening- my awesome sisters, mom, and aunts planned this fun shower for Sophie and Sage. Everyone has been so generous and welcomed our girls home with open arms. They love their new clothes and fun toys, but they especially love their new family and friends. They are getting more and more comfortable around others. It was great to see all of you- thanks for your thoughtful gifts.
I wasn't the camera man, but couldn't believe I didn't get a picture of my sisters and mom this night- thanks for the great shower!!

Hatfield Park...

What a fun morning. We enjoyed this playgroup with some wonderful families who've also adopted from China. The girls had a ball and enjoyed seeing other friends!

We love to swing!

Sophie and Sage love to play in the back yard, and visit parks
(who doesn't at age 3)...
The first time I pushed them in some swings, they laughed so hard
I thought they might hyperventilate...

Parks have never been so fun!!

Mostly fun at the Fair...

The animals are a bit stinky, think I'll push Nick in...

"Pay back"~No fair, too easy for him

We would rather pet the calf

Waiting for our first pony ride

Not so sure about all this

But Trevor seems to enjoy it

Nick, don't leave

You sure are far away from me

O.K., this is just mean

Are we done yet?
Thanks for the pictures mom & dad, but I would rather have you here!

We liked the pigeons

This is more fun then watching the rodeo!

Loved the slide!!

Oh no, more horses?

These horses are much more fun then the breathing ones!!
