Tybee Island

Here are some pictures of the boys from a couple of weekends ago when we went to Savannah.  Both of my boys love the beach and that makes Chad and I so happy.  This is the first time Colby has been since he could walk and it was so fun to watch him explore.  And that's Caleb down there running in and out of the waves in his whitey tighties (silly me for thinking it was too cold to get in the water).

Adoption update...

Okay, I realize I am a little behind blogging on adoption news, I just wanted to make sure....so anyway we have officially switched programs from Ethiopia to Honduras.  Right after we turned in our application for Ethiopia their government came out with all sorts of changes and there were lots of unknown in terms of how adoptions would be handled.  Since we were so early in the process, we decided to explore other programs and landed in Honduras.  We got the process started and now have a mound of paperwork .Seriously, there is ALOT of paperwork.  We also are begining our homestudy. I'll try to be better about updating, but most likely we'll be in the paperwork phase for a few more months.

Baby Animals

we had the coolest oppportunity yesterday.  a couple from our church owns a petting farm and had all the baby animals available for picture taking.  Caleb just loved them! He was so sweet and gentle with the animals and held them close and kissed them.  Colby liked them too, though he hasnt learned how to be quite as gentle and by the end of the afternoon thought the ducks were meant to be stepped on (luckily they were much faster than he). It was a beautiful afternoon and we got some sweet pictures.

look colby!

this is Colby laughing at the little chick

i wasnt gonna let little colby hold one, he doesnt know what gentle means, but i looked away and he just grabbed the little fellow. he was fine.

when we asked caleb what his favorite animal was he said the baby duck
