Adoption picnic!

Could you die over how cute that is?? I love it!
Anyways we went to an adoption picnic today and skipped out on church. We have missed all of the gatherings our agency puts on because they are always on Sundays or Rich is working so we made sure we made this one and it was so much fun! It was down in Englewood at this amazing park that has a train ride, a petting zoo (which we did not partake in) and this fun little riverish thing that wraps around the park. The kids LOVED playing in the water, it was freezing cold but Malia was loving it and kept dipping her butt down and then would jump up and start cute!
It was so nice to talk to other adoptive parents and see all the sweet little ones running around. We love that we can put Malia in an atmosphere were she can be surrounded by other adopted children and children of all colors with parents of all colors.. so important to us to expose her to these things! Kaden and Maddie fit right in and had a absolute blast.. Maddie being the outgoing little thing she is kept finding the shy girls and inviting them to play with her and I saw their parents light up that she got them to run and play with her! LOVE IT!
We had a great time and I had so many photos I loved that told me the story that I had to include them in this post so its a long one!
Maddie was riding this thing like a bucking bull, it was to funny
See what I mean! And she has not been to a rodeo since she was a baby
Kaden was totally embarrassed about being on there.. he was doing it for Maddie hehe
This is SPANKO the clown... yes I came up with spank jokes in my head!
It was so so hot we had to all hide under some shelter for awhile and ate some food
Maddie got some face painting done

So cute!
bubble fun
She finally figured out it was more than a water toy and started getting bubbles out of there

Train ride
high fives

They were over pics but man it would have been cute.. Malia was melting down so she isnt there

If you couldnt tell I am loving the vintage feel for these photos

Look mom a rock
She looks miserable right?? NOT she was in heaven

Before we realized she wasnt gonna just dip her feet

So cute! Miss those kiddos. I totally cried watching Isaac get on the bus this morning! Good thing Caleb took him to the bus stop.
