Happy Gotcha Day Ellie!

A year ago today our friends Daniel and Whitney brought home their daughter, Ellie, from Guatemala. Paul and I have always talked about adopting but God really used Ellie to show us that now is the time and it is not as scary as we thought it would be. So in honor of Ellie we went to Pollo Campero for dinner! It is a Guatemalan fried chicken chain in the south.

my food and my lens cap:) I wimped out and just went for mashed potatoes instead of an authentic Guatemalan side:)

they had a steering wheel so Jackson didn't really eat much.

LOVE the toddler playground....Jackson always gets so mad when he can't climb up in the tubes!

So being a Southern girl, I really liked the fried chicken! We will definitely be going back because the playplace was really great for toddlers and the tables were in with the playground so no fits to be had in the middle of the restaurant....although he did eat the majority of his dinner in the car on the way home:) And I want to try the plantains next time.

So Happy Gotcha Day Ellie! We enjoyed celebrating your special day from afar!

Thanks for the post! We love you guys and are praying for you!!!

Did Whitney tell you that we're going to be in Irving for the adoption conference in April?

It's the Summit V conference held by Christian Alliance for Orphans. I even get to speak at a breakout session.
