A visit!

The girls' birth mom, Ashley, came to visit this weekend with her family. We were so excited to have them here and to get to hang out again. Last year, the girls were a little wary of any new people, but this year they warmed up really well.

First, Ashley won them over with technology - a never- miss with these girls!
Then, her son Gabe enchanted them with a game of "cheers!" over ice pops:

Even cousin Michael joined in!

There were trees to be climbed:
And then lots of pictures to be taken:

This is a close replica of one of the pictures that these three took in the hospital when the girls were born:
Got to get Grandma LeAnne in there!

What a fun family - we are so thankful to have them in our lives. Thanks for making the trek out to see us again this summer, guys!!!
