Last Day as Family of 5- One year ago

This day was so bittersweet.  I was going to leave my boys for an indefinite amount of time.  It could be months before I held them again.  So many emotions.  I was torn between the excitement of holding Annie and leaving my world.  All the bags were packed and it was a day to just have fun as a family.  It started of with yummy Kolaches and donuts.  
Then we headed to the local zoo....AKA the pet store.  My kids think this is great fun!
Then off to downtown Dallas for a good time!  We had never taken the boys to reunion tower, and we wanted to make the day memorable.  It was really fun!
Then, off to Angy Dog for some yummy lunch.  You can't beat a big hot dog covered in chili!  I knew my future consisted of Ramen Noodles, so why not indulge on some good ole' american food!

After lunch, the boys dropped me off at my work.  My sweet co-workers had thrown together a beautiful shower for me in just a few days and it was AMAZING!  I never had time to thank each one of them for the gifts and the shower.  Everything happened so quickly.  But, I am so thankful for each one of them.  We came home with so many diapers that a year later, I still have so many boxes.  They have all been such a support for me through this whole adoption process.  I have no pictures, because I either lost them or did not take any...I don't even know.  But, it was pink and PERFECT and I am so thankful for them.
