Summer Fun

Summer around here is filled with lots and lots of sunshine and water. Claire is surely a fun in the sun kinda girl.
We went camping again right around our family day.  Can you believe that it's been three years since our little angel was placed into our arms.  It still brings tears to my eyes when I think about the journey to bring her home.  She did great this year, but we were better prepared.  I think we bought out the entire section of bug spray in the store.  Claire also jumped from the platform at the springs all by herself for the first time.  She knows how to swim now, but we told her that in the springs she has to wear some type of floatie b/c it's so deep.  She listened and had both her floaties and a doughnut around her waist...it was too precious.

We were also able to meet in person a family we met on the net.  Their little girl was also adopted from the same orphanage.  The girls hit it off and played and played despite the rain.  Really it rained and rained...and rained...but it didn't stop these beauties from sporting the barbie jeep and then "washing" it with sand.  Good times...Good times



Summers still not over and in Florida we have many more months...but the next big trip is...wait for it...
We're going to brave D*i*sney for her fourth birthday...that's going to be an adventure, especially since she tells us everyday "I three....when I turn four...we going to D*i*sney world..and see the princess castle, and Mic*key, and G*oofy, and they gonna be big, and we ride on D*umbo...and..and "  Oh she's gonna have a ball.
