We finally had some time to go visit Faith and Shawn’s step-sister “baby Natalia” today. We had a great time playing in the park, hanging out with Liz and Nick (and his daughter) and of course, taking pictures–lots of pictures. I usually take a lot of pictures, but De-Ann also took quite a few with her camera. As you know my pictures are pretty good but De-Ann is a pro. Unfortunately the pictures below are the ones I took, not De-Ann’s. haha.
Liz had some time to connect with both Faith and Shawn together and separately. She was playing on the slide, pushing them on the swing and just hanging out and chatting. It was great to see them calling her Liz and also remembering that they pray regularly for “baby Natalia” and sharing that with Liz.
I think everyone had a great visit and we are scheduling another on for late summer, hopefully. The kids are both looking forward to it. Enjoy the pictures below.
The party started with one of the kids’ favourite things to do: swimming (what a great idea). We only had an hour at the pool but we had so much fun. Both Faith and Shawn went on the kiddie slide. But Faith wanted to go on the big slide, unfortunately they wouldn’t let her because she wasn’t tall enough. She probably would have loved it! Oh well, someday soon. Unfortunately we had to get out. One hour wasn’t very long, but so glad we were able to go swimming.
After swimming we went into the party room of the community centre and enjoyed some fantastic food and great conversations. Not typical toddler food. But it was so delicious. We all enjoyed it, even the kids. Then we sang happy birthday to Joanna and she opened up her gifts.
Time went by so fast and everyone had such a great time. We were so glad to be able to celebrate Joanna’s birthday with our whole family. And happy to be invited.
