So, we had a great trip! We loved getting to see this cute family on the first leg of it. They were wonderful hosts in Tennessee. And, I was serious when I said we want to have a China travel group reunion. Tennessee seems like a great central location too! I think we should all crash at the Caudills! HeHe, kidding! Anna just had a small panic attack!
You've seen some of the pictures from our Chicago trip. But, here are few more that I wanted to share.
Noah and Brett having and little.....ummm, one on one.
Brett just graduated from high school and has decided to join the Marines. He is just a wonderful young man, so please keep him and the Gulkes in your prayers as he begins this new chapter in his life! He was working a lot while we were in town, so he wasn't able to spend time in the city with us. But, when he was around he made sure to spend time with the kids!
When Brett is around there is bound to be some rough play...and my kids just eat that up anyway!
Brett comes in handy in a pool too. He makes a great springboard!
Shot Put Swimming!
Clear for launch!
The Gour's in the Big City
The many faces of Mia! This is Silly Face!And this cute face is supposed to be Angry Face! She didn't quite make angry this time!
The best part of our trip this summer was remembering what it was like last year when our adopted children were so new to our families. They have, all three, come so far in just a year and it is amazing to see! YoYo and Claire talk so much now. All three kids are so happy and healthy and Mia is running everywhere and climbing and getting into everything! They are so smart and so beautiful. And, we just can't imagine life before them!
