Connor's Gotcha Day- Part 1

So today was amazing.  I am honestly too tired to write a proper blog post tonight and have a crazy day ahead, but I wanted to at least share photos with those of you who are not on my facebook page.  Check out the newest member of the Rylands family!
Before we entered the building...
Cameron (left) with his new big brother, Connor, age 13.
Our first partial family photo!
Here I am showing Connor photos of the family from my phone
After we left the Civil Affairs office, of course we had to stop at Wal-Mart!
The weather has been much warmer than we anticipated, so we needed to look for shorts.  Come to find out... Connor, who is 18 months older than his younger brother, Cameron, is in fact much thinner. So, we had to get smaller sizes for him even though he is taller. #Skinny!
Once we returned to the hotel, it was time for some fun in the pool. (and to assess if he could swim- yeah, he can't!)
But, he had a blast splashing Cameron and me!
 After the pool it was time for a quiet dinner in the room. What's on the menu?
What else?  Noodle bowls, of course!
A favorite in the Rylands house.

Connor and Cameron "cooking" dinner!

Enjoying their masterpieces!
  gAfter dinner, we skyped with Tom and he got to "meet" his newest son for the first time!
Connor was already so much more at ease and was acting silly and playful the whole time.
Great night!
Thank you to the army of believers who have been praying for our sons for months!
Can't wait to sign final papers tomorrow!
