She loves when cousin Doug, Kadie, and Jordan visit. We think part of that might be because Doug has the wonderful ability to act like he's only two. Just kidding, Doug.
And hey, it isn't easy s-q-u-e-e-z-i-n-g into that playhouse in the back yard!
We started this blog to document our journey to our baby in China. We decided to adopt around Christmas of 2004. Our information went to China in January, 2006. On Tuesday, July 8, 2008, we finally got our referral and a picture of our little girl. Her Chinese name was Pu Fu Na and we have named her Merrilee. We returned to the U.S. with her on August 29, 2008, and we've decided to keep this blog going so we can share with you some of Merrilee's memorable moments.
Those pictures were taken on the back deck at Steve and Bea's house.
Here are some video highlights of the parade. From the fire trucks, to the marchins bands, to the classic cars (the Camaro was daddy's favorite...) this will give you a sense of what the Catonsville Fourth of July parade is all about.
By the way, the "Baltimore Marching Ravens" (the Ravens marching band) is for you, Uncle Jim. Let's do another game soon!
And this was Merrilee, curbside, in her lawn chair, waving as the parade passed by!
Thank you to everyone who made it a great parade!
