And then there was 3...

We just gained a "instant 4 year old". LOL! Our niece Delana is going to be staying a few more months with us! It's funny to us because, well...I guess we have to let everyone in on a little, secret. We have been kicking around the idea of adopting another child. We looked into it for about the past 4-6 months, thought hard on it...and decided that it isn't the right move for us. I am an instant gratification girl. After talking, and talking, and researching, and taking...we decided it just wasn't the right move for us. But we still want a 3rd child. We thought about having a 3rd one ourselves...that thought left our heads as quickly as it entered. For many reasons...one of which is the thought of me being pregnant in my late 30's...NO THANK YOU! I'm still in my early 30's right now, but there are some "issues" that would hold up the process. And taking care of the "issue" would not guaranteed that we would get another baby out of it. So what are we cooking up now...FOSTER CARE with the option to adopt! We are well aware that it is a process, and it takes time...but it's something that we are willing to take a stab at. Now you see why us having our niece is kind of funny. We were just getting ready to go to our 1st meeting to learn about foster care when it was decided that she would be staying with us for awhile! When she does go home, we will get back on track on getting a 3rd bugger eater in our home!

Here she is...Little Ms. Delana! And NO, I could not recreate this hair do if I tried! Beautiful isn't she?!



And here are a few pics of what we have been up to...

Another one of those things that I can't figure out why she does it...


But she loves it...and she does it every time!



Kind of like this...


The dinosaurs even cut loose and enjoyed the water!



Ms. Lexi got a kick out of waiting for T Rex to get a sprinkler enema!


These guys were quiet the show!


Jake...he just watched from under dad's huge umbrella. Beautifully covered in orange Cheeto dust!


It was a good day soaking up the sun with my babies, one of my besties, and her babies!

I love these pics Jules! And I LOVE the dinosaurs... I'm going to have to do that next time we go to a sprinkler park. Or ANYWHERE for that matter. I'm glad you had a wonderful day -- and nice job on the photoshop editing. :)
