Talking about adoption, birthparents, abandonment, race, and China with my kids. That's not all we talk about -- but reading this blog, you'll think it's all we do!!!!!

In a Cavern, In a Canyon
It's as amazing as I rembered! I took my oldest nephew to Calsbad Cavern when he was 10, and now he's 25. And it's as amazing as Mimi remembered -- she came in 1959 when she and my dad were driving from California to Louisiana for a new military posting.
None of our photos do it justice, but I'm posting them anyway!
The highlight for the girls was being sworn in as Junior Rangers, which included quite a long oath promising to preserve the cavern, respect national parks, and share their experiences with others.
We topped off the day with swimming in the hotel pool and then a barbeque dinner:
Last thing before bed, manis and pedis all around in our hotel room!
