One morning, the boys and I drove down to Colorado Springs to see a few friends. Our first stop was to visit Mrs. Carol Cash who has a WONDERFUL backyard. Lucas loves helping her water the plants while Axel loves to pick them. We a beautiful Colorado morning it was, thank you Carol!
Then, it was off to see our dear friends who recently adopted their son, Bekila, from Ethiopia. What an awesome family they have and it was so great to finally meet this beautiful boy! Bekila and Axel are the same age so it was so fun to see them together. They really did get along quite well, I was impressed. Lucas always loves going to Darcy's house but doesn't always love the camera so he hid from it.
Here's the crew: Bekila, Axel & Lucas.
Getting to know each other.
Bekila showed Axel one of his favorite activities, playing in the dog dish. It was a huge hit!
Little carnival rides downtown Manitou Springs, CO.
A Mama in love...
Bekila & the pup.
Darcy, Nancy (her adorable Mom), Bekila and Zookie.
Bath time...Bekila LOVES the water and is definitely going to be an Olympic swimmer some day. :)
Bekila was checking me out with his big, beautiful eyes...or maybe he just wanted my camera?!
We just had so much fun spending the day and night with them. Lucas' favorite part was sleeping down stairs in their spare bedroom which you enter through a hatch and a ladder. So fun! THANK YOU DARCY & DAVE & BEKILA! We love you and miss you so much!
On the way back to Denver, I was able to have lunch with a dear, dear friend from my Montrose years. Wendy & were the best of friends and have so many memories together. It was so nice to see her and spend a few hours catching up. Thanks for taking the time to meet us Wendy!
