Adoption Party

Adoption Cake

Several months ago, we promised our girls that we would throw a blowout party when their adoptions were finalized. The weekend after school ended for the year was party time! Nearly sixty people came to our home for a Mexican-American Luau. Crystal made tostadas, and I grilled a ton of hamburgers and hot dogs.

We had two pinatas -- one for the smaller kids and one for the older kids. Neither one survived very long. The first or second hitter broke both pinatas!

We had water games and bubbles set up for the kids. The slip 'n' slide was a huge hit!

The adults had a great time.

All in all, the adoption party was a grand success. Thanks for coming everyone!
