Abuelo bought Mia this lawnmower that shoots out bubbles for Christmas. Mia decided to help out Daddy this weekend with some yard work. My neighbor behind us was mowing his yard and glanced over and was laughing, she looks so cute.
Memorial Day weekend around our house involved bathing suits and sunscreen. This photo was taken today by our front doors, it is amazing to see how much taller she has gotten. My photos before in this spot didn't even show the door knob. Soon you'll be able to see our wreaths. Sunday we spent the day at the beach, Mia and I collected more seashells and we found some to make a "beach shell necklace" as she calls it.

Most evenings while I get dinner together Mia and Mike spend some fun time outside on her swingset. She has become a daredevil and screams for Mike to push her higher. She learned from her cousin Torey to ride the swing on her stomach and kick her feet up.

Earthquake In China
as many of you know, the earthquake in China has affected so many people and my heart goes out to everyone touched by this terrible disaster. Mia's birthplace, Chongqing was very close to Sichuan province and did have some affects of the earthquake, but fortunately was not the epicenter of the quake.
I know many families are suffering at this time, however; I always think of the children in the orphanages and how they fared. I can't even watch the news, It is horrible. Was Mia's birth family OK? Having been there and seeing the construction, and the way many people lived, I can only imagine the devastation. I know several roads are closed and relief cannot even reach certain areas. How many families are there right now being united with their daughters? Are they safe? So many questions.
A charity called Half The Sky helps children in institutions and assists many orphanages with childcare, supplies, medical care, etc. They are now accepting donations to help all the people affected by this unimaginable disaster. I have included the link for the earthquake disaster, as they are always accepting donations, this one is specific to the earthquake.http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/earthquake.cfm
help if you can
Please keep China in your prayers tonight. . . . ..
