CCAI "Picnic Under the Palms" 2008 Reunion

On Saturday we attended the CCAI "Picnic Under the Palms" 2008 reunion with adoptive families from all over Florida. There was food, fun and entertainment throughout the day, and the agency and volunteers did a wonderful job hosting the event.

Kylie had a great time doing crafts and playing at the playground, while we got to catch up with old friends from our journey to Kylie as well as new friends we have met along the way during our latest quest.

It is so nice to see how the kids have grown over the years, and I think it will be nice for Kylie to look back on these times and see all of the types of families that are formed through adoption. In addition, it is a great chance for her to experience Chinese storytelling, dance, and music, which was all performed by local volunteers.

An unexpected treat was that we met up with one of our neighbors that we met during our first wait and got to get an updated picture of the girls a year and a half since they last met. They are certainly turning into two cute little ladies, and I am happy to report that Kylie didn't choke Alexandra this time when she hugged her goodbye...
