We are home!

After a whirlwind trip that was as fast paced as it possibly could be, we are finally home. We will be working on pictures of the orphanage, and the video for your viewing pleasure, but here are a few shots of our trip. There are a few things that we take advantage of here in America, like the picture above, we can't actually touch the telephone wires. Convenience is a huge thing here too, we don't have to walk everywhere and the Banks and Fast Food are all drive through. If we want to go shopping, we go to one place, usually Wal-Mart (I confess, I am guilty) and all that you need is there. Also, water, we had to buy it everyday in a bottle, and couldn't drink from the drinking fountains or from the tap if we wanted to stay healthy.

Here's a shot of Clint in the Piata (Flea Market) in Pitesti. Isn't he adorable? I think so.

Not the best picture of me, but I did love this table cloth.

We were able to go to a Monastery in Curtea de Argues, Romania. It was beautiful.

Finally, a shot of the orphanage we visited, we weren't aloud to take pictures of the face of the children, but we did get a lot of video. You will be able to see that in our video, hopefully we will have that soon.

All of you that have placed orders, Clint will get them out today and tomorrow. Thanks again to everyone who helped, we can't wait to show you all the pictures and video.

WELCOME HOME!!!

So glad to see you made it back home safely. I'm sorry to say I disagree with you, I don't think Clint is "adorable" I think that is what you said. I would say he is a handsome stud muffin!!! LOL

Smiles,
Kelly

I am glad you had a great time and that you made it home safe. Thanks for the chat before you left and you did a great job on choosing a pattern for me. Enjoy the rest of your week and may we all be grateful for what we have and are able to enjoy. Even the small things we take for granted.

Welcome home. I's so glad you had a wonderful, safe trip and can't wait to see the video. How did your little ones survive? I'm guessing they were just fine.
By the way, I shop WalMart too. It's less than a mile down the road.
