Memorial day 08

I can't remember a more relaxing and fun weekend. I saw 3 snakes. Oliver tubed for the first time. I read a novel from cover to cover. We ate way too much but it was all delicious. Thank you so much to all of the Wilsons and Tuckers for allowing us to tag along. You are so generous with us. Thank you for loving our children. Our relationships with you mean more to us than you will ever know.

Steven Curtis Chapman is a giant in the adoption world. He has done so much for the cause, more than anyone else in our generation. We were blessed by a grant from him while we were in process for Oliver, as were the Demers and many other adoptive families. I've always thought of him as such a hero for all of the waiting orphans in this world. It was such a shock to hear of his youngest daughter's passing. Here is a blog they have set up to let others express their condolences.

I turned 28 today. I slept until 9 which I would like to say is sleeping in but that's my usual wake-up time. Went to lunch with Laura and my mom. Bought a fabulous new baby sling at Jellybeans. Grabbed Ocean Zen to go and took it to the park because it is gorgeous outside. I've always loved having a May birthday, the weather is usually great and peonies (my fave) are in bloom. Tomorrow night we celebrate with family.

How cute is Molly's face!

Ollie wearing Emily's pink jacket. I think it's his color.

Look who held the baby!

Cashed out.

Watching her baby graduate.

Thoughts about a few things

Jeff and Shannon- One of the funnest weddings I've ever attended. So beautiful, too.

Lotz and Jenny- I know you regretted the ribbon but they are very cute invites.

Grey's anatomy- So long. I will miss you.

Lost (season 1 and 2)- Our new summertime hobby.

TLC roasted vegetable crackers- Oh, how I love thee.
