Tuesday we had the privilege of meeting a fellow adoptive family and blogging friend. I've only been able to do this a couple of times, and it is always so fun to put voices and personalities to the faces you've grown to adore over the internet. Because I've had a bad week, we had several change of plans and when it came down to it, I just couldn't manage a play date, but Elizabeth and her family stopped by to bring us a St. Louis gooey buttery cake, which happens to be one of my favorites even though I've never mastered actually making it myself (hey, I can mess up anything in the kitchen) and hadn't enjoyed for a long time. We were able to chat for a few minutes and at least share a hug.
Look at these cute kiddos: Camden, Ingrid, Olive, and Rory.
The sticker fest on Olive make me smile.
Rory immediately needed to mother Ingrid and hold her bubbles.
And this just completely cracks me up. Sweet Ingrid smiling for the camera; Olive looking at my daughter like she's insane (which she kind of is).
I really wanted to snap a quick picture of Elizabeth and I, but I am so not kidding when I say it was a bad day. You know it's bad when I'm letting someone meet me for the first time with no scarf and little make-up. It was lovely, lovely, to meet you Elizabeth, Adam, Olive, and Ingrid. We'll have a proper play date next time!
I'm headed in today for treatment #6, and then I'll have a glorious 13 days off. Wish me luck!
