Russian Adoption Reunion 2015 Bippity Boppity Boutique

July 2015 was a special time for me and my girl.  We scheduled to be with a bunch of friends on the Russian Adoption Reunion and Cruise.  We first spent some time at WDW...now can I say that I LOVE DISNEY.  I have seen Disney thru the eyes of a young girl who loves all things fast, spinning, adventuresome and tom boyish (me)...then I've seen Disney thru my boys...lots of rides, eating, going, going, going, fast.  Now this time I got to see Disney thru my beautiful daughters eyes...we went s l o w, very, very s l o w.  This is how she likes it.  She is a dilly dallier if I ever met one but I have to say that I fell in love with Disney all over again.  Thank you Ava Grace for letting me see thru your beautiful caring blue eyes all the joys Disney has to offer.

Our first day, we were together with Sofia and Jennifer Culley http://culleycorner.blogspot.com/
These 2 cuties spent their first year together in a St. Petersburg orphanage, Number 16.  I have to say that when these 2 get together watch out.  They love to giggle, be in charge, and have lots of fun.  Of course Jen and I couldn't help but match them in the most adorable clothes.

Avas most very favoritest (her words) part was
