Tennessee is H-O-T this time of year!!! So, I organized enough water fun to keep these little babes cool!!!
And, I do believe they enjoyed it!!!
The children were just PRECIOUS!!! My favorite part was witnessing those children that STILL remembered each other from their time at Hannah's Hope Orphanage in Ethiopia...It was as if they were long lost friends coming back together!!
The "kids" group shot!!
I was SO excited to meet so many "blog" and "adoption" friends that I ONLY knew ON LINE!! It was SO SURREAL to see them ALL come alive in ONE PLACE!! So cool!!
Isaac and Andrea (from www.babeofmyheart.com ) stayed with us all weekend...more cute pics of Isaac and LL together in my next post :)
This little guy, above, wasn't so sure about Miss LL...he was backing away!! :)

Our other travel buddy Will (above with his fam)
LL enjoyed the bubbles A LOT!!!
Doesn't this little love in orange look like my LL?? We all thought so!!
Ok...I do believe LL was getting a little tired by the end of the picnic!!! Above..she was about to fall asleep standing up!!!! :)
My Mississippi Peeps!! They have such a great adoption fellowship starting up there!! Praise God for these families that LEAD the way and follow God's calling!!
Ok, so do you see these two holding hands?? Isn't that the sweetest!! I have pics of these two at Hannahs Hope together while in Ethiopia!! This little Princess came home right after my LL...so they were there together the entire time!! So neat!!

This is Jody from www.talkissheep.blogspot.com She is the one who traveled with my sister last week to Ethiopia and broke my heart with her posts about the Kora Dump and the 130,000 people living in the dump in Addis Ababa!!
