For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10

Trip to Florida

We escaped the grey of home to head to the sunshine state! In the adoption world, it isn't normal to change scenery so quickly for your new child. However, we are NOT a normal family. Not normal in many ways. :) As it turned out, It couldn't have been better. Just what we needed! Especially Moses. The trip gave us more family time and Moses' little personality is starting to shine through. He's quite a character, this little boy God has blessed us with.
The beauty of blues........ blue sky, blue ocean ...............ahhhhhhh
Alas, vacation did nothing to end the need for the dreaded timeout!! A fun time playing in the potty was had by both boys but ended in a torturous trip to the playpen. NO FUN there.
The pool was just as wonderful as the ocean and no one complained for lack of sand.
BUT ............... The beach is MY personal favorite. The kids stay busy for hours on end and are happy doing so. What more could a Mommy ask for? My only complaint is the sandy mess afterwards. Oh and maybe the packing everything before hand. Other than that, I love it!
We figure this was most likely Moses' first trip to the beach too. He needed no promptings in what to do.
I know this probably looks like a nice picture of Moses and Judah playing together. Looks are often deceiving. Judah is actually 'taking' Moses sand and toys here, resulting in tears...........
So that's it, Peeps. The updates are over and your caught up on the Dominguez Journey! :)


  1. Oh my goodness... that picture of them in time out is PRICELESS! I love it!!!

    And call me crazy, TOTALLY crazy, but Moses seriously looks like a Dominguez to me. Seriously! I think he fits right in!

  2. Hey, Lisa!! I am loving all the updates! Your kids are all gorgeous. The Florida pictures really just brought out the jealousy in me!! We are so ready to head to the beach, but we can't leave until June 4th. I haven't been ANYWHERE or done ANYTHING since Thanksgiving. Our entire lives have been soccer, soccer, and soccer!! But, anyway, back to your post! :) Moses is absolutely precious. I just know that he and Judah are gonna be the best of friends as well as brothers. My boys don't even know what to do with themselves when the other one is not here. It's a really special bond.

    Is this you last update on this site?

  3. I am so glad that you guys got to get away and play in the sand! The pictures of Moses melt my heart! I miss him so much! I am glad he smiles for the camera now and no longer does his "mom has the camera so time to look away" thing he did in China!

    Thanks for the updates!!!!!

    But really, how are you doing? Email, call, fax, smoke signals, whatever, just let me know!
