Our Family Day

we celebrated our Family Day -- the 1 year anniversary of when our twins came to us on friday. my dh and i both woke up with a feeling of excitement. we started the day at 9:00 at the barbershop to get david a haircut before we headed to the mall for our first official family photo. the picture turned out great, and dh got me to sit with the twins for a picture for his new desk (he left this afternoon for indy to start a new job). after a quick breakfast snack at dunkin donuts, we headed to downtown chicago and the shedd aquarium to see their new exhibit of sharks. the kids had a great time, as did mom and dad. it was a bit chilly by the lake, but really a beautiful day!!!!

it's hard to believe how fast this year has gone, and people are sooo right when they say that kids grow up too fast!!!!!

just had to share our day with my friends --

Ginny -

Your Family Day sounds heavenly!!!! I am so glad you did something fun & special to celebrate the day the twins came home. I too can't believe it has been a whole year since you posted the news. Glad the pictures turned out too. We tried to get spring pictures of Tucker at the mall last week, and it was a disaster. He was too tired, too hungry and we waited too long ... not a good combination! The photographer only took 2 pictures total, and they were horrible, so we cut our losses & went home : (

Happy Family Day to you all!!!!!!!!! - Kelly (Mommy to Tucker, 18 mos old)

It sounds like you had a GREAT FAMILY DAY all together!!! So nice to celebrate your first year together. It sounds like you have a WONDERFUL family. It too has been almost a year for us since we recieved our son Zachary, who will be one on Easter Sunday!! We went and picked him up right at the hospital nursery at just 3 days old. The time flies!!! Denise.
