Happy Adoption Day!

Well, we had a lot of fun but it was a LONG day. It started with us having to be at court at 8. I hoped we wouldn't have to wait long as ummm, we have a 3 year old. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Luckily and unluckily, our caseworker and adoption specialist showed up with gifts for Cameron. In the midst of waiting over an hour, we started talking about potential names for the baby and the adoption specialist suggested HB's name as a name. Ummm, wtf?!? That was just strange (on so many levels). Anywho, we finally got in and the 100 year old judge granted us our adoption. In our wait, we managed to get some cute pics.

Afterwards, we headed to Cameron's favorite restaurant for breakfast. Not my idea of a place to go while dressed nice but it was his day and the restaurant has a train which is key. Then it was time to head home to change our clothes.

We headed to the mall to build a bear...or rather a moose.

Introducing "Mainer", we just couldn't leave Maine without some sort of moose thing. And yes, he does have adorable Sketcher sneakers.

After making the moose, some rides at the mall, and a picnic at a playground we thought Cameron would take a decent nap. Nope. Though Mary and I probably shouldn't have told him that he'd get his gift from us after his nap.

Needless to say, he got his scooter. Later, T, P, and Q came over for pizza and cake (yummy ice cream cake).

To end the day, we read our Happy Adoption Day book which is always weird because it's actually a song but Cameron loves it. Though you can't tell from the pic since by this point, we were a bit grumpy and over tired to say the least.

Now, one very tired little boy is in bed and this "new" Mommy is about to have another slice of ice cream cake :-)
