Adoption Get Together

Yeasterday Matt and I hosted an adoption get together for the three other familes that we have gotten to know through our adoption journey.  There was Karen, Kevin and Lucus, Barbara, Andy and Daniel, and Belinda, Steve and Adam.  Mommies and boys got together back in April, but this was the first time with the daddies.  All in all it was a huge success.  There were a few tears here and there – a couple of fights over toys – but really the boys got along so well.  The boys are all within 4 months of one another so the similarities are amazing.  We played, had supper, and played some more.  The kids loved playing on the stairs – dangerous I know – but we kept an eye on them.  In the end it was a pretty late night for Alex – but don’t kill me girls – he slept in until 9:10am… ahhh…. And had a proper nap and bedtime tonight.    I can’t wait until the next playdate!  It would be so nice if the boys could grow up knowing each other.

As anyone with a toddler knows, it is difficult to get your child to stay still for a picture (especially when your camera battery is dying), so here are some pics – the group shots never did turn out.  I’ve also “borrowed” some from Barbara – hope you don’t mind Barb! 😉

Ahh... Don't touch me!  A few second's later Alex freaked out - Adam tried to calm him down, but that just made it worse.  Silly boy!
