 ( Sep 22nd, 2010 6:31 pm)

Lindsay- Yes we went to this amazing vineyard that Monica found for us. It took 2hrs to get there but it was so worth it. We had our family pictures there, but didn’t have time to do the girls so Dan & I drove back the next day to do the girls. Totally worth the drive. And Lyla’s hair does look blond in that picture but it is still pretty dark:)

So my neighbor Sarah (madison’s mom) asked if I could watch the kids for a few hours while she went to go check out a possible adoption that they heard of through a friend. Well 3hrs later she shows up with this little beauty in her arms!!! I was dying. The mom met them and felt like they were suppose to be the parents and gave him to them right then. He is 3 months old and is the cutest baby EVER! I’m so happy for you guys!
Still trying to come up with names, but I vote for beckham.
