Summertime fun and quick adoption update

We have been keeping ourselves busy! We have been having a ton of fun at the park, spray park, Worlds of Fun and just hanging out at home.
At the end of this week, the big boys and Chris will leave for 3 days for Webelo's camp. They will come home for the 4th of July and then Chris and Ethan will leave for 10 days for Boy Scout camp. This is great bonding for them, but I sure do miss them!!!!!!!! At least we can visit on Visitor's Sunday.

Yesterday, Ethan received two merit badges and received the rank of Star. Great Job!

We finally received good news about our adoption of "R". The letter we have been waiting months for was received yesterday (not in time for court, though). However, our new court date is July 5th! Our agency seems to be optimistic that our case will pass on Monday. We sure hope so. We want our baby girl home!!!!!! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We can definitely use them.

Here are a few pictures of our fun...

Home from VACATION!

We had a great time on vacation!
Our first stop was the grandparents in Oklahoma. We spent the night and headed to San Antonio with a quick stop to visit Uncle Brad, Aunt Dawn and Dylan.
We then got back on the road and landed in San Antonio! The next day we went to the Riverwalk and the Alamo. We had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe and then did some swimming!
The next two days we spent at Sea World. It was blast for everyone. The kids really enjoyed feeding the dolphins and playing at the waterpark!
On Thursday morning we headed to S. Padre Island with Uncle Brad, Aunt Dawn and Dylan. We spent several days playing in the sand, boogie boarding in the ocean and chasing crabs. It was an amazing trip with great company. The kids really enjoyed playing with their cousin. The last night we were there we went to a great buffet with great music. The boys got to eat crab legs and Heidi learned she was quite the hula hooper. We also had great accomodations thanks to Aunt Dawn!!
The kids did an amazing job traveling. The only glitch was getting stuck in the Oklahoma floods.
Enjoy a few photos of the great week!
For those following our adoption we didn't pass court again. Our new date is June 28th!
