A Great Visit and Photos as Promised

Yesterday, Colby and I went to lunch with some new friends. We went to Applebee's with Sharon and Jill, our fellow WHFC friends. Jill and her husband are on their way tomorrow to get their son Nicholas from Yekaterinburg, Russia. They were actually on their first trip there when Mike and I went to pick up Colby in January. We were hoping to get together then but Mike and I stayed in Kamensk instead on Yekaterinburg for our first 5 days and then they were home. We are so excited for them to be bringing Nicholas home! Sharon and her husband are on their way to Bryansk, Russia for their first trip to see their child. We aren't sure whether it is a boy or girl or the age yet. What excitement! We had a wonderful lunch and I am hoping that we will become great friends. I can't wait for all our kids to be together.

And as promised, here are a few photos from last weekend's trip to Lake Warmaug. Colby loved the water and even enjoyed having me dunk him under. I can't wait to bring him to Lake Winnepasaukee in New Hampshire over 4th of July. Then we'll all go in and have Colby go swimming. I was also able to take a quick video with Mike's Mom's camera. Hope you enjoy!

Good luck Jill and Sharon. Safe travels and keep us posted. We can't wait to see the photos!

Anna loves the water too. Swimming lessons soon for her.

Colby looks like a natural in the boat!

I love to hear that more children are coming home. Do either of your friends have blogs?

Hi Melissa,
I had a good time with you and Colby. We will have to plan another get together when Jill gets home. It will be great to get all of our kids together.
Colby was just a joy to be with, he is just a sweetie. So funny and outgoing, saying hi to everyone who walked by us. I will keep you posted on our travels.

Isn't it awesome to see your child experience things for the first time? Looks like you guys had lots of fun!

I just love getting together with my blogger friends. I am going to have to make a road trip to meet you too!
