A Visit with Kate

(and her family too)

This past weekend, we had the chance to meet up with a family we met during our trip to China to bring Juliana home. Their daughter, Kate, was in the same orphanage as Juju and is just three days older. We hadn't seen them since our first trip to China and were so excited they were coming near us to visit family.

We had a full day of swimming, good food, various water crafts (dh rode a wave runner for the first time and had a blast), and most importantly catching up and visiting with an absolutely wonderful family. We were so busy we didn't take nearly enough pictures. We did attempt to take one of the girls together.
Here Kate checks out Juju.


Then Juju sizes up Kate.


Juju decides to be a ham for the camera.


They both then decide they've had enough.


Once there was popcorn involved, there was no chance for a good photo...


So we'll settle for a shot of the two families at the end of a fun-filled day in the sun.

The journey to China for Juliana's adoption was truly an amazing trip of a lifetime, an experience that brought so many memories. The opportunity to share it with such wonderful people was icing on the cake for us.
