Today we picked up Emma and Kenny early from school and headed to Mall of America to celebrate Levi H.’s birthday and to say goodbye to his sweet family who are leaving to go back to China. We met them in China back in March of 2007 and have had such a special bond ever since. Check out some of the cutest pictures of their daughter Abby and Emma growing up over the last few years. I guess I went a little overboard with all the pictures!
This is Emma and Abby H. at the Beijing Zoo in China March 2007. Abby had just turned 2 and Emma had just turned 1. What cuties!
