A day with the monkeys!

These pictures took forever to download, so I'm not going to say much... here's our day in pictures :)

Rockin' those neutrals with a pop of bling ;)
 That smile could brighten up any room!
 Headed out for the day, baby in tow :)
 Went to see the monkeys!

Excuse my nasty hair... it's washed but I'm so ready to straighten it again!
 Watching the monkeys...

 Joelle and Papa John
 Monkeys right behind us!
 Could she be ANY cuter?!  I think not!
 Eating lunch by the lake.  I promise she likes me, but Jared doesn't do any fun tricks to make her smile when he's taking pictures like I do!
 Our love :)

  12. I was going to say that she is a lucky little girl, but I don't think it has anything to do with luck. It is so obvious that y'all were meant to be together. We serve an Amazing God!!

  15. Amy, I've been blog stalking you for a while and I know we've never met but I just wanted to let you know that I am head over heels so happy for you and Jared. I cried while reading that you got the word to go pick up your daughter. I so believe that everything happens for a reason. God has a plan, and we as His children just needs to let him guide us. So happy for you!

  18. I am so happy for you! Joelle is absolutely gorgeous, and all of you are so lucky to have found each other. I hope you are learning as much about her culture as possible so that you can teach her about her homeland as she grows up :) God bless!
