We had fun

with Lisa and the kids at the Santa Barbara zoo. We spent our time walking around, snacking on hot dogs and candy, feeding the giraffes, riding the train, and playing.
It was so wonderful to be mommies together. Busy and a bit hectic, but wonderful.
The girls took turns crying on the way home. They were exhausted and so was I.
This longer stretch of time with them is certainly enabling me to experience a new side of motherhood- frustration and exasperation, along with the giggles and cuddles. We are definitely "in" it right now.

I love hearing about your journey with the girls. I'm curious where things are at. Is the plan to be long term foster parents or has the conversation settled on adoption? I just think this is such a wonderful thing. I look forward to reading more about it. Take care and enjoy the ride.
