We made the trek to Kansas.  We are now living outside of Kansas City, Missouri where Dave is attending school to specialize in tax law.  We are having a great time, although it is true we miss our friends (and the beach) in Florida. 
Little David has LOVED living by cousins.  He calls them each "Mary," and calls their house "my house."  Our house, he lovingly refers to as "Grandpa's House."  (Pictures to come soon - then you will see where the nick name originates)
We have enjoyed visiting the church history sites close by and there are tons of activities for kids.  There is something new to see every week!

Walt Disney World - End of an Era

We finished up our last day at Disney yesterday. It was amazing!  We definitely have a love for spending quality time together as a family.  This was a trip to remember (hopefully for little David, too!)  Since we will be moving to Missouri next month, this was a great opportunity for us to enjoy the sites of Florida for the last time before heading out.

David LOVED watching the balloons throughout the park.  When his daddy bought one for him, he held onto the string and said "Wheeeeeeee!!!"
This is the look he kept on his face for the entire "It's a Small World" ride.  He was drop-jawed amazed at everything.
 We made it to Epcot's flower and garden festival, and it was very impressive. They had topiaries of all the Disney characters that were extremely detailed. And the entire park smelled strongly of gardenias.  It was really fun!

My brother came to visit us in Naples over Dave's spring break.  It was so much fun!  We fed the giraffe at the zoo, went on an airboat ride, held a baby alligator, ate gator tail and frog, did yoga on the beach, went to the beach for 3 days, spent plenty of time at the pool, had a barbecue and a GREAT TIME!!  It was so fun to actually vacation here in Naples!

He's 2!!

The little guy just celebrated his second birthday!   I can't believe how fast this time has gone.  He has grown up so much!
He is going to make a really sweet big brother one day.  We have been trying to get him used to the idea, and got him a baby doll.  He loves to feed the doll and give it baths.   It is so sweet to see him take care of it so intently! 
Thanks will never be enough for the gift of our son.  We will never forget the tremendous sacrifice and act of love by his birth parents, and want them to know how much they have changed our lives for the better.  Adoption is a miracle!
