Mesa Lakes Colorado

My sister Lisa is in town. and we wanted to go visit my brother in Denver, so we found a half way point (6hrs from SLC and 4hrs from DEN) and met up for a bit of camping. Mesa Lakes is soooo beautiful! Our campsite was shady and surrounded by pine trees. We were 15 feet from the lake so we had a great view. I would highly recommend camping there!
This was the lake right by our campsite

playing games at night

There was this awesome little hike/walk with this stone wall covered in chipmunks. Everyone would bring sunflower seeds to feed them and they would eat them right out of your hand. Another family was nice enough to give Lizzie some seeds to feed them.

Adam's Birthday Party!

For Adam's birthday party this year we had a little pool party/BBQ at the Jorgensen's! I love birthday parties! The boys played an intense game of pool basketball while the girls lounged with the kiddos. It was Emily's first time in a pool! (well she is only 3 months) Here are some pics of the day.

She loved it! So sweet.

We are on the wait list!!!

We are officially on the wait list! Our Dossier arrived in Ethiopia on July fourth and now we are officially waiting for a referral. I can't tell you how excited Adam and I are! For those of you not in the adoption world, a referral is when we see our sweet baby's face for the first time and get a brief history on how they came to be an orphan, as well as a brief health history. Another family that is with our agency got a referral after two and a half months!!! See their cute baby girl here We are number #14, so we will let you all know as soon as we get a referral!!!
