our first BBQ

A good friend called last minute with tickets to an Alaska Flag Day BBQ just down the road...she has 2 girls adopted from China and we've talked a lot throughout the process.
It was a great time...outside, classic American dogs, potato salad and chips. Everyone was perfectly happy. Balloons, face painting, ice cream and great music in the background. The kids held pretty tight to us at the beginning, but were running around, free and happy by the end.

At the two week point, the house was still standing!! The kids have gone back and forth on deciding who's their latest favorite. Today Mei-Yun loves Sam the most; two days ago it was Daddy. The first week it was Emma. I guess it's the benefit of having more people to love.
Luckily, there's usually someone around who can get the right things to happen for me, like brushing teeth or getting in bed. We've been to the park daily, and they love being outside. It's also been the easiest way for them to meet friends and not have to worry about that pesky sharing for the most part. And, as has always been the case in our home, Daddy is AWESOME at playing with kids...and they LOVE him desperately for it.
