A very happy reunion

We spent the most wonderful afternoon and evening yesterday with Philip's China travel group. Vince and Marcy graciously hosted all of us at their farm for the fun reunion.

Out of the twelve families who traveled to China to receive their children (us being one of them), seven of us were there. We had a blast playing, swimming, eating, looking at pictures, taking pictures, and catching up with all of these dear families. :)

We missed the five other families who could not be there. :( Hopefully we can see them next summer!

Our little cuties two years later

All of our sweet children who were there . . .
Ted gets the prize for being the "oldest" child in attendance.

The beautiful mommas!

The handsome poppas!

A little pool time

A little farm time

Even a little "pig" time (not Philip - see the pig in the background)

We are so incredibly blessed to be part of this wonderful group of people.
What a special bond we all share.
Essentially, we were all present at the births of our Chinese children!

We so missed all of you. Looks like a wonderful time. Absolutely love the group pictures of the babes. Jie would have had a wonderful time and Trayjan adores everyone so much. We hope to see everyone soon. Hugs and Kisses!

What a precious reunnion. I love that you were there at the "birth" of my child and we were there for one of yours! I will never forget your two sweet boys and how they made our trip so much fun.
