To The Zoo!!

P5162457

Yesterday we had lots of fun with our friends at the zoo! It was actually perfect weather for the zoo...a little overcast and not very hot. I think the weather helped to keep it from getting too crowded.

Here are our friends Lauren and Paige(left) and Malia(right). We were so happy to be able to spend the day with you guys!! This is the second time we were able to get together with April and her girls...both times were at busy parks and April is always outnumbered by little ones. April, my hat goes off to you, my friend! You never skip a beat and never lose your patience and never even appear to tire out from chasing your little gals. I am sure you do...but it never shows! Your girls are just adorable!! We traveled to China with sweet Malia's mom and dad when we traveled for Sophie and always look forward to being able to spend time with them!

fun! I have to say Sophie's smile looks so natural and as if she is not as anxious to be out and about. Ella is darling as always.:)
I see Sophie's hair is growing back in pretty fast:)
Hope you have a wonderful week Michelle

What a fun day out :). Ella's smile is as bright as the sun and Sophie looks like a natural on that pony. Animals have such a way of getting through to children. A few classmates of M's are doing therapeutic horseback riding this year and really love it.

Sharon said...

What a great time. Lucky kiddos!! That shot in the giant flower is too adorable.

Nancy Lee said...

That is the coolest zoo! Sophie looked great, have her practice that smile for her weddin day! Her fiance, he's headed to a pre-op tomorrow, hopefully he will start talking normally and can really tell me off. Glad you had a blessed day! nan

What fun! I love a trip to the zoo...I think it's about time, the last zoo I was at was in GZ!

Jeff and Amy said...

How adorable, looks like everyone had a great time and of course the girls are just way too cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sara said...

What a bunch of China cuties! And you got Chelsea to come too - fabulous!! I can't wait to head to the Zoo this summer!

Michelle said...

Hi Michelle!

To answer your question, yes, we did use CCAI, did you? There is one lady in their WC program that is sooo mean, and we aren't the only ones she has treated that way, I have found out. The wonderful thing is that through that ordeal with her, God was so faithful despite the situation, and sent us our girl, and that really increased my faith! That is so great that you get to go places with Malia, from Lilyann's orphanage! We adopted with another couple that live in PA., and we hope to have a reunion with them and some other couples from our group sometime, but we are all spread out in different states!

Blessings!!!
Michelle

Oh what a fun day! I know you are so happy to have your big girl home...is she home for the summer? I hope you get lots of quality time with her! Ella and Sophie are just adorable.

Michelle said...

The Zoo Crew sure is a cute bunch!! The girls look like they had a blast on the pony rides. Mia still won't do ponies. :( Maybe this summer...

I hope you're enjoying your weekend!!

Yoli said...

Those are stunning pictures.

Very very cute and so fun. We haven't been to the zoo in forever. It's too hot now to go..sigh.

Sorry I have been amiss in visiting. I am so dang tired by the time I get home.

Michelle said...

Just wanted to pop in and say hello!! I'm sad that my blog tracker says it's been four weeks since your last post. This is such a hectic time, I haven't had much time for blogging lately. I just hope everything is ok.

BTW, we leave for China on Friday!!
