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!

Auntie Bee and The Frucheys!

Kind of sounds like some weird name for a retro band, huh? LOL Auntie Bee, Dan's sister Brenda came all the way from New York to visit with the family! She's been so wonderful and supportive through everything with the adoption that it was so nice to finally have her meet Keira! Since she isn't able to come out too often, Kat and Matt (Dan's sister and husband) as well as the Fruchey clan (Dan's sister Christine and family) came out to visit as well!
As you can tell, Keira just absolutely adored Auntie Bee and would yell out "Auntie Bee!" just to make sure she was still around to play frog or rabbit hopping with. The last time Fallon and Aria, Keira's cousins were able to come out...there was a little bit of a rivalry going on! When Christine was coming off the plane, Dan offered to carry Aria to help out and Keira definitely didn't like her Daddy carrying another cute little kid around other than her! LOL We weren't sure how they were all going to be getting along this time around, but they got along great!
Here are Aria and Keira hamming it up for the camera at the Wild Animal Park. Uncle Todd and Fallon were there as well checking out the sites. It was Fallon's 5th birthday after the weekend, so we celebrated it while they were out. Aria is 2 months younger than Keira is.
Little Monkeys! Just kidding...actually, they had a little help from Uncle Todd although you can't quite see all of him.

Uncle Matt and Auntie Kat live up in LA and they drove down for the day to celebrate Fallon's birthday. Here is Uncle Matt working on the computer with Keira. He read Where The Wild Things Are with her a couple of times and she just wouldn't let him stop!
Notice the beautiful castle cake that Auntie Bee made for Fallon's birthday. WAAAAAY better than the cake I made, huh? LOL
Auntie Christine, Aria, Auntie Bee, Keira and Fallon all watched on as Uncle Todd cut the first slice. It was a really big 3 layer cake and we didn't come anywhere NEAR finishing it that night!
What better way to end a dinner than a Hula Dance! Keira found me and gave me a lei to wear and dance with as well. Somewhere along the way, Aria decided that I needed a ziploc bag to complete my outfit, so she ran in the room to get it for me. LOL Isn't it funny what children come up with? LOL I thought I looked FINE without the ziploc bag! :)
Here are Aria and Keira giving each other a big hug. We had a really great time and hope that we can see you all again sometime soon!
