Embassy Day

Yesterday was Hannah's Embassy appointment. The day started early as everyone in the room was up at 5:45am. We decided for Jason to stay at the hotel with the boys while Shannon took Hannah to the appointment. It was a long morning for Shannon and Hannah (and not neccessarily short for Jason) as they had to be in the hotel lobby at 6:30am and didn't get back until about 10:30am. There were 6 other families from our adoption agency there. Surprisingly, the US government didn't charge us an additional $670 that we thought we would have to pay for doing a second adoption (paperwork fees). All in all, it went well and Hannah is officially ours in the eyes of the US goverment. We spent most of the rest of the day at the pool. Everyone had a great time. Joel has become quite the little fish (in the shallows - not a deep sea fish). We called it an early night since everyone was tired. The kids all went down and we actually got to enjoy dinner (reheated pizza) and a movie. Here's some pics from the day...
