Time for take off!!!

Well, we're all packed and ready to go.  Miracle we're actually ready to go.  Was busy yesterday trying to make brownies, cookies and cakes for the cookouts.  Laundry was another story.  But, everyone pitched in and we got it done.  Easter Bunny came early to this house.  I'll have to get some pics up soon.  It was just easier to do it before we left.   I did not put much thought into it this year.  Easter just seemed to sneak up on me for some reason. Thought I had more time.  Oh well.  It's done and that's what counts.  We wanted to give our kids a group basket filled w/ outdoor items and such.   My kids live for the outdoors so I knew it would be a hit.  Of course, had to throw in some chocolate.  Think they enjoyed a nice suprise before the trip take off. Have a wonderful Easter Weekend. 

We are looking forward to time away.  I will post on here Sunday about our trip, adventures we had and of course pictures.  For future adoptive parents, these are the times you focus on...NOT the process.  Yes, we are in the midst of an adoption but we are also an adoptive family living our lives.  We don't put anything on hold during an adoption and I think that is important for others to know.  It is also important for the kids.  Adoption is hard for everyone involved.  There is no paperwork on this trip, no telephones to be answered, no school, no work, just us and friends having a good time.  Hiking and revisiting nature.  I think that is important during spring anyhow.  Tends to give you a new perspective.  Need to go.  Literally.  Car is packed and despite some craziness going on this morning, we are ready for take off.  Talk to you all on Sunday & can't wait to share our adventures.  Happy Easter from the Boyd Bunch!!
