This is the third post I have done today, so please be sure to check the to previous posts also so you are not too lost on where we are in Germany and how we got here.:) I have to start this post out by saying first that these pictures are in exactly the opposite order I wanted to load them...but I am going to go ahead and post anyway.:) Today we spent the day in Stuttgart with our friends, Kirstin and Jason, and their two children, Karina and Cooper.:) We decided to take the train to downtown Stuttgart so the kids could play and we could have some lunch while looking at some gorgeous scenery.:)
www.alabamahoffhouse.blogspot.com/ to see a picture of the kids from our pick up trip in Guatemala in 2005....how times have changed!!!:)
new castle ( in the background).
The kids were quite excited to ride on the train to downtown Stuttgart.:)
And here we are at last, but definitely not least...a picture of Kirstin and me. I really can barely wrap my head around the fact that I am living in Nigeria and she and her family moved to Germany last November, but here we are together again. Like I said in the previous post, there are friends in your life you can see every now and then, but it feels as if no time has passed...and Kirstin is one of those friends. Helping each other through the adoption of our children is such a strong bond that we know we will be friends forever...no matter where we live.:) I thank Kirstin and Jason for having us to their home to visit and for our children to spend some time together, and most importantly I thank them both for being dear friends to us.:)
