A Weekend in the Motherland

It's no secret... Brad and I are native Texans and PROUD of it! Due to job circumstances we moved to our current state several years ago(and we now know that God lead us here as part of our adoption journey). We enjoy getting back to what we affectionately call "the motherland" from time to time. This weekend worked out perfectly for a long awaited trip back home. As it turns out, we were able to enjoy another of God's blessings that we have recieved through the world of adoption. We were able to visit with one of our favorite adoptive family, "bloggy" friends, and fellow "PROUD TEXANS". We stopped by their little town in Texas and spent the night with these wonderful,gracious people. Our kiddos had a blast playing together, jumping on the trampoline(even in the 105 degree Texas heat), and just spending time together. We took a driving tour of their town... and were very tempted to want to move back. The moms just had a blast talking away about anything and everything. P and K were fabulous host/hostess and treated us like honored guest. Ms.K, my kiddos loved your food and declare that you are a terrific cook...I have to agree! We cannot wait for our next visit together. MsK and Mr P, you must come visit us and let us return your hospitality. We were so blessed by our visit.

Playing a Little Rock n Roll...
Steaming HOT but waiting patiently for a few pics together.

Friends... what a crew... they were having fun taking silly pictures.

Everyone had fun dogpiling Nolan... he was a very good sport...
