"Gotcha Day"

Today was a special day for our family, especially for Summer and Bill. We went down to the Salt Lake City Courthouse and finalized the adoption for Lilly. What an amazing experience. I think we all shed some tears in the courtroom. Here is a pic of Summer, Bill, and Lilly outside the courtroom.

The judge was so nice and let them take a picture with him. He only had one condition and that was he had to hold Lilly. Sorry Summer this is the best pic I have of your guys and your eyes were close. Don't hate me for posting it :)

Picture with Grandma and Grandpa in the courtroom. We have trouble keeping our eyes open I guess!!

Picture with the Aunts. Nettie, me, and Bill's sister Julia.

After finalizing the adoption we had to go celebrate. We went and had breakfast at Ruth's Diner up Immigration Canyon. It was a really yummy place to go eat at. I want to go back sometime. Below is a pic of Mom, Dad, and Nettie.

Summer didn't really have breakfast she ended up getting a BLT. There was a pickle on her plate and we decided to see if Lilly liked pickles. Summer hates pickles and was like I hope she hates them and Bill was like I hope she likes them. Lets see who won . . .

Lilly loves pickles!!! She didn't pull a funny face at all. In fact she didn't want us to take it away from her. It was sooo cute. I guess she is going to eat everything just like her Dad!!!
Nettie and I are so glad we took the day off so we could be part of the experience. It was just a wonderful day. We are so glad Lilly is ours for good. She brings so much joy into our family. Can't wait for next weekend when she gets blessed and sealed to Summer and Bill!!!


  1. Ahhhhhh!!!! I got to meet Lilly at the Caribou County Fair and I will agree. She is a sweetheart!!!!

  2. Congrats to you all!! So glad they finally have a baby!!!
