Old Fun pictures I ran across today-Kids meeting one another for the first time

I am still trying to learn how to use the Digital camera that Michael bought for me for Christmas. As you can tell, I still haven't figured out how to edit the photos before posting them, I will keep working on it.

Anyway, as I was trying to figure out how to upload some pictures from my camera to the computer without Michael's help today. I stumbled across a few old pictures that I don't really remember.

These pictures are of our Trip to Kansas City Missouri when we took our 3 biological kids Brianna, Jadon and Dallin to meet their soon to be new adopted siblings for the very first time. What an adventure it was. I look back on it and can't believe not only how small all the kids look but how many of them were small. I recall people asking us if we were a daycare or a preschool or something and at the time, I thought how ridiculous but now looking at these I think, no wonder, they are all about the same size. We went from having 3 children to 7 children and then were blessed to later add 2 more of the same sibling group, Donald who at first was not able to come with them and Ammon who at the time hadn't yet been born. The above picture is of Brianna, Linda and Tina.
This photo reminds us of one of the most fun places we went when we were in Independence and Kansas City. This restaurant was in the Crown Center shopping center and although I can't remember the name of it, we all loved it because it was kind of a greasy spoon type of place but once you placed your order, the orders were sent out from the kitchen by a toy train that ran along the ceiling and then lowered your food to the table. The kids thought it was awesome watching the train go round and round and wondering when it would stop to lower the food for our table.
We stayed at the Adam's Mark Hotel in Kansas City near the Chief's stadium. This photo is when we were getting ready to take all the kids to the pool. Christina, Brianna and Linda instantly were good friends. The boys on the other side of the room all ready to go swimming too. Of course they all needed to show off their muscles on those skinny little bodies.
So we all made it downstairs to the pool and dad had a wonderful time taking everyone swimming in the pool.
