Joanna here- OK There are like a million pics in this post. So if you love cute pics of adorable children- myself included - YOU WILL LOVE THIS POST! If you love larger families, adoptive families, and great times then you will love this post. You see we went to visit this family they Johnson's my mommy follows Kristi's Blog. Their cutie pie Lucy was from the same orphanage as my brother Jonathan- are you keeping up with me here?
Anywho- this crazy family said sure your family of 10 can come stay for an entire weekend. While we're at it lets invite several adoption friends over as well just for fun. Hey over 20 children in the house both Saturday night and Sunday night- why not? I mean children are a BLESSING right?
All right mommy get on with the one million pics already which only took an hour to load- not even joking......
Here is Joshua giving his- really another picture look
See the above - yeah this is there really really fun backyard. with a little house to play in, a zipline for kids, swing, sand box, playground, man- we should move here :)
OK so these two were inseparable all weekend. Where you found one- you found the other. Talk about a cute couple :)
Hey, mom look how cute Lucy and I are.....well you know especially me......
Yep, mom still me looking gorgeous.....yeah, and that is Lucy in the background.....my new friend- but shhh don't tell her.......
Yeah- so she is a real drama queen, but in a very cute sort of way......
OK Lucy you just got to post like this....and tada- cuteness....come on I have seen your mom's blog you've got the cuteness.....go with it girl.
OH yeah....who needs a pool? Not us that is for sure. Their driveway is wayyyy too cool. I mean 2 spigots of water fun....loads of fun tubs to dump, refill, even sit in. Who could ask for more? Then you have a hose, a little ramp with a car, firemen's hat, and you have it made! Really!!! It was a blast and most of the weekend- this is what our kids did :)
Well.....and this - which is also great fun :)
Well....then you just add a few more children to the mix......
Look 4 All God's Children International adoptive mommies and their cuties (oh yeah the one without her cutie yet traveled last week to go pick him up....oh yeah- big bunch of cutey pie!!)
The Johnson's Family who we stayed with that have 5 cutie pies to play with
Now these are some really fun families :) Thanks for hanging with us!
Lucy: Ummmm....is that a line you use with everyone? Cause I am totally unimpressed.
Jonathan- ooopppps sorry.
The Oatsvall's & The Mayernick's Who have this incredible ministry of supporting and caring for orphans. So you can go here 147 ministry store and get really cool gear to show how much you love orphans & feed them while you are at it! Now the craziest part of the night is between these four families there are 26 children......and yet while talking they burst out in laughter saying- yep can't wait to see who else God has for our families. Yep that is some serious craziness....for JESUS going on. I mean why would we let the fact that we have larger families already stop us from adopting more? Don't let those minor details get in the way!
So there you have it. Meeting and staying with the Johnson's - a huge highlight of our vacation. Meeting other adoptive families - BONUS!!!! What a beautiful blessing to share in the experience together. God has blessed us all beyond imagination. Thank GOD we didn't miss the journey! Are you missing yours????
