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!

  1. All these boys are just darling! Will be fun for them to look back on these photos some day 🙂 Hope they stay friends for a long time.

  2. Love it, Krista! We had a great time…we’ll have to get our next get-together in the works. I can’t believe Alex slept until 9:10 a.m.!! We weren’t that lucky, but Adam at least slept until his regular time and napped well yesterday. He had a great time playing with Alex, Daniel and Lucas.

  3. Krista we had such a great time! I can’t wait until our next get together. That is wonderful that Alex slept so well for you. Of course, Lucas was up bright and early at 5! LOL! Hopefully next time we get together, Lucas will be more settled at day care and feel more comfortable with everyone.

  4. Love the post and all the pictures! Thanks so much for having us, Krista, Matt & Alex. I agree with Kelly – it will be so fun for our boys to look back at these pictures and see where their friendships started! When/where should our next get-together be?

  5. such cute photos!! love the “what’s for dinner” photo! looks like so much fun and it’s wonderful that all the boys can play together and will grow up together. so sweet.
