CCAI #1168 Reunion in Cincinnati Aug 7-9, 2009














Saturday we visited the Newport Aquarium


















And then the kids played in the pool....














Lucy & her new crush Zach











Sunday we said goodbye





We had another sucessful and wonderful reunion with our China travel group. Because we all adopted off of the SN list, our travel group was quite small...only 4 families total. (One family has been unable to join us for the past two meetings..) This gave us a chance, I believe to become much closer as a group. I love that when we meet now, it feels like seeing family again. We all just seem to pick up where we left off, and the kids (siblings included!) play together SO WELL!! It truly is a joy to be able to meet up with them every time!! Thank you Miller and Debono families for another great weekend! We wish we could have spent more time with you all!! A special THANK YOU to Ron who has taken the time these past 2 yrs to plan these weekends, and to both families for coming to Ohio so that we could be a part of it! We love and miss you guys!

How awesome that you are continuing to get together. What great memories. We traveled completely on our own which is why I think my blogging friends have become so important to me.

There were five families that all adopted from Josie's orphanage within five months of each other and we are going to meet up with each other in October at Disney World. I hope our reunion/meeting goes as well as your own.

PS. Have I said how much I love your daughter's short bob haircut. It's adorable.

Oh, these pictures are so fantastic! WHat a sweet reunion, and that little Zach had better watch out! haha! Our group is trying to get together this coming January...here in Nashville, so that will be so easy on us! It wasn't even our idea, so I can feel guilt-free! haha!

When we were looking through your pics, my Nolan said, "I wish Macy Li had hair!" Haha ! Lucy's bob is so dang cute! Can't wait til we get there!

Have a great Sunday!
