We have been counting down to this vacation for two years. It was almost sad to see the day arrive becuase I knew it would be over just like that, and it was, in the blink of an eye.
|We got our toes and nails done... Now Grace asks when she can have another "Panicure" so cute|
|Ashlee had the cutest nails|
Now I should tell you, Grace LOVES staying in a hotel, I think because we spent so many nights in one when we first got her in China.
We left Charleston on Saturday morning, June 9th. We were meeting some very special people for dinner that night. Another family we met through adoption. The two girls from China sat next to each other and it was like they had been friends for years. It was a wonderful sight. Carrie and her family were wonderful and we were so glad to finally meet them. Her kids were so well mannered and were not shy talking to adults, we just loved them.
We stayed at a hotel close to port, you could actually see ships from the windows. The girls (Grace and Ashlee Gail) were very excited.
|She's looks happy right! It hadnt hit her yet, that the day had finally arrived!|
|But Ashlee got her excited Really Quickly. Here they are screaming into thier pillows|
|checking and checking again to make sure we have everything|
|Grace and Duffy Very Ready|

I have always, (did I say always) wanted to parasail, Paul would always say no. So this time, I just booked it, I talked it up to Grace, and got her all excited.
Once we headed to the spot, you could see her changing her mind.
|Ready , Set,|
|Hello down there, HOW HIGH ARE WE GOING TO GO|
|No, Wait, NOT IN THE WATER|
|Since Grace wouldnt go, I got to go twice and you know I enjoyed the second time much more, because if we were to fall, I only had to worry about me|
