We had a great time meeting families last time we were here and have stayed in touch with many of them which has been great. They all live out of state... But the really great part about the family we met this time is that they live only about 40 minutes from us!!!! We have been spending time with Amanda and Ben and their new daughter Sophia. We are already making plans to have a little get together with them and a few of our other China adoption local friends (I think you will know who you are if you are reading this! Be on the look out for your invite! If you don't hear from me... invite yourself over! The more the merrier!) This is something that I have been desiring to do for a long time. So our new found friends have encouraged me to get on with it! I wish I had taken more pictures with them. We only have one of their family I think.
So we spent the afternoon with our new friends, walking around the island, shopping, playing and we ate at Lucy's an American cuisine restaurant... we all got big juicy burgers and some fries! We enjoyed our visit while we ate and listened to American music from the 80's!
Below are a few more photos from our fun day on the Island. The big boys helped Hudson play on the playground and enjoyed it themselves as well. Good times!
