Dusit Zoo

Today we went to the zoo here in Bangkok and we met up with the Koivisto family.  Atte was also adopted from Pakkred and he and Max were best buddies!  It was so wonderful to see the two of them playing together!  You never would have known that they don't speak the same language (Atte and his family live in Finland).  Such a wonderful added blessing to be able to see them while we're on this trip!

The zoo was not like what we are used to in the States.  You can get so much closer to the animals!!!

We seriously could have reached out and touched this guy!  So amazing!

The boys tossing food to the hippo!  How fun is that?!

This is how Ellie entertained herself!

 After the zoo, we came back to the hotel for more swimming.  Ellie is really becoming a fish, just like her big brother!  As soon as I put on her swimsuit she ran and grabbed every pool toy she could find :)

Tomorrow morning we head to our board meeting!  Can't believe this sweet little girl has already been with us for a week!  The last couple days have brought some great steps in bonding and we're reveling in each one!!  Thank you all for your prayers and words of love....I'm so sorry I haven't been able to get back to each of you individually....turns out being a mommy to two keeps you busy!!

We had super cool day with you guys.

It´s amazing how we all were like old friends together.

I promise to get skype, so we can still be in contact via that.

Boys were certainly enjoying their time together and sweet Ellie, oh she was so cute with her big eyes and adorable smile.
