Getting to know Mingzhu

We received our first email from Mingzhu today. We're learning about her and that makes us so much more excited to add her to our family! Here are the things we learned today:

1. Her American name is Charlene, that is what she wishes to be called while here in the US.

2. She LOVES kids and dogs

3. She enjoys art, reading, swimming and cooking...and wants to cook Chinese food for us...YUMMMM

4. Her favorite color is blue

5. She is excited to attend church and participate in Young Women's

6. She wants to experience walking the dogs in the park...she says that will be amazing.

We are so blessed to be able to have her in our home and as a part of our family! I will post new things I learn as we continue to communicate prior to her arrival on August 16th into Dayton!

King's Island

We went to King's Island for two days and we had a really good time. Somehow we managed to lose our camera; so, I can't show you all the cool pictures we took =0(

We rode lots of fun rides, saw lots of cool shows (Sariah got to go on stage for one of the kids shows called Marty's Party...she thought that was pretty cool!), and played at the water park. Ammons favorite ride was the Fairly Odd Coaster (or for those of us that remember way back when...the Beastie) and Sariah's favorite ride was Scooby Doo. Jason and I truly enjoyed watching our kids have so much fun!

We're hoping maybe someone will or has turned in our camera to the lost and found...I really don't care about the camera, but I wish we had our pictures. Keep your fingers crossed that they call us and say they found it!
