Usually Leyna takes the girls over to Logan's Papa Jim's to go swimming, they're pool is much bigger than this little one we have just to get cooled off, and they had all been over there swimming earlier in the day, but Ciara hadn't had enough and wanted to take one more dip before we called it a night.

Oh, that water is cold!Ciara just loves to swim!Oooooo, it's still cold! La la la la la...Splash!!

Periodically as I get them made, I will be adding new clippies to this site. These are the two I came up with today. To order the Lavender Beaded Clippie OR the 3 Ladybugs Clippie, just click the appropriate "Buy Now" button to the right of this post.


I'm trying to get a feel for what the response will be to these hair clippies that I've designed. The plan is to create a series of four different clippies for each country that I choose...and first off is CHINA! I'll introduce the next in the series based on the response I get from this post. And BTW...the first person to comment to this post will receive these two FREE!

Don't be afraid to let me know what you all think!!

If you'd like to order this Panda Clippie, the first in this series, just click on the PayPal button to the right!

...who we love more with each passing moment.

Every year on Memorial weekend our agency (European Adoption Consultants) hosts an agency-wide reunion of families from all their adoption programs at the Cleveland Zoo. This was the first time we attended and, boy, it was fun! Friday night started the weekend off with a cookout/kids' fair on agency grounds, followed by all day Saturday spent at the Zoo. At one point I overheard someone saying that that day every year is the busiest day at the Zoo because of the attendance of so many adoption alumni from EAC. I met in person lots of families whose blogs I had been following and that were in the yahoo group to which I belong, and I met a lot of new families also. And our two social butterflies (Logan and Ciara) were in their glory with so many people to entertain, lol.

Flamingos!!! (BTW...see that clippie in Logan's hair? I'm going to post some exciting news about it very soon! Ssshhh...I made it!)Logan sssssliding outta the ssssnake pit.KangaLoganKangaCiaraRoger and I feel soooo blessed!There was also a parade for all the families to march in around the zoo lined up by country and then by province or city in that country.Logan and Ciara were pushed around all day in what to me looked like a mini rickshaw, lol. Ciara proudly displays her place of birth while Logan wearily waves China's flag.Halfway through the parade Logan made the mistake of getting outta her seat at which time Ciara quickly konked out!Yikes, Papa! Grizzlies!Mother (Leyna) and daughter (Logan) pose in front of the bears!This was also our China travel group's 1st reunion since getting home with our daughters. We all met at Lori and Dan's for supper after the zoo. Two families came in from near the Atlanta, GA area, two other families are from the Cleveland, Ohio area, and of course our family in Pennsylvania. We had a great time reminiscing about China and catching up with each other's lives since we got home. All five girls have adjusted beautifully and also had a great time playing together.

From left to right are: Dan, Lori and their newest daughter Shawna; Roger, me and Ciara; Chris, Catherine and their daughter Harper; Matt, Ingrid and their second Chinese daughter Zadie; and Tom, Karen and their daughter Heather (who, BTW, we think was having a little red couch picture taking flashback. She's the oldest of the five girls and probably remembers the most.)
