The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Busy Week!

It's been a pretty busy week for Keira and I...for no particular reason except that we've been busy! :)

She's been all over the place! We went down to the zoo on Monday and since it was a little cooler on Tuesday, I decided that it may be the last few times that we'll be able to go to the Wild Animal Park before the temperatures start going over 100. She went to the Children's Museum in Escondido as well as the Wild Animal Park. We also decided to try out the Toddler Zone at Chuck E. Cheese and needless to say, I wasn't too impressed. She did like the Barney car, but there wasn't much for her to do. The salad bar was all the way at the other end, so there was no way that I was going to just leave her there while I went to the salad bar, so imagine trying to carry her under one arm with your drink and a plate in the other hand. Not an easy task- Bad Designing! One thing that was pretty funny was that they had the machine that takes a picture that kind of looks like a sketch. I tried to have us do that, but it gives you so much warning and time before taking the picture, so it ended up being me with a weird face and half of Keira's face after she squirmed out of the picture. I was laughing the whole time it was doing the sketch because of how bad it looked! We also did the weekly trip to Legoland after her Wobblers class and I had a caricature done of her. The guy did a great job and had her sitting on her favorite animal, the elephant....of course with her second favorite animal a pig sitting in the picture as well. We have pictures of animals all over her room and Dan taught her how to make an elephant sound. She loves making the sound now---whether it's really an elephant she's looking at or most other animals as well! We also went to Pajamarama on Friday and back to Legoland on Saturday with Auntie Lorraine. She got to meet the Lego Pirate Dude---I'm not sure if it has an official name! :) Whew!!! I'm getting tired just typing out all of the places that we went to this week. Today, Dan and I headed down to Coronado with her and took the ferry to downtown and let her play at The Embarcadero Park and watch the kites. After that we walked around Seaport Village before heading back to the ferry. Dan and I used to walk to Seaport Village every Sunday with Jackson back when we lived downtown. I really miss living down there. It was so much fun and there was always something fun to do or something fun going on. It's too bad it just isn't a good place to have children with all of the "Blue Dots" all over the place. In case you don't know, The Megan's Law Website marks offenders with "Blue Dots". On the map, they are ALL OVER the downtown area. One thing that I'm happy about with the downtown area though is that they should be finished with the new children's museum sometime at the beginning of the year next year. It looks like it's going to be pretty amazing! Here are some pictures of just some of the activities we've been up to for the week as well as Keira's caricature.

Good night! That's a very busy week! I had no idea! When mommy says many adventures, she's not joking is she? I have to wonder if Auntie Gigi and cousin Max can keep up with you two? We'll have to see. And I always thought Gigi and Max were always on the go...yikes! Auntie Lorraine
