FFF - Kalahari

Kalahari with friends!

My sister and I took the kids to Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, OH this week to meet up with lots of wonderful friends we met through our adoption. It was a BLAST! I highly recommend Kalahari! We cannot wait to go back! I know these aren't crazy hair pictures which is the theme for this week's FFF (see for lots of FFF and crazy hair pics), but we're kinda going along with last week's theme which was FRIENDS. :)

Tara (Curlysgirly on and I sharing a yummy drink. Amy, you asked for me to get out from behind the camera and post a pic of ya go. ;) I don't do this often...too many pics of me and my camera will break. LOL

The whole kid clan minus Karson, Logan, and Alex. There were 17 of them

The reason we all know one another! :) Curtis (CEB), Sofie (mariais5), Devon (curlysgirly), Andrew(fochtru), Bryce (mariais5), Isabelle(nstoldt), and Kemry (cashcrew)!
