Anniversary Vacation!

We took this past weekend and got away for a few nights down in the burbs of Chicago. We had so much fun. We went swimming every day, to the Brookfield Zoo, parks, picnics and most importantly, we all went to church together (being one of three employees for the church, I am usually the first to arrive and the last to leave the site we rent each Sunday). We had a wonderful time. Here are some photos of our trip. Most of them are from the dinosaur exhibit at the Brookfield Zoo. Elijah missed Dixie and asked for her each and every day (the dog). He even cried for her a few times! What a great time we had. Happy 6th wedding Anniversary to my wonderful husband who still amazes and surprises me more and more.

We love all the new pics! Elijah is so very handsome and it is hard to believe how grown up he is :) We remember when we were first considering adoption- you guys were an inspiration to us in so many ways! Our entire extended family knew you guys and followed your blog :) It is neat to see that come full circle as we recently met a couple just beginning, and they kind of follow us in the same way.
