Yesterday more than 100 people gathered at Hope Cottage for our annual Founder's Day Picnic. Babies and toddlers were everywhere!

Despite the heat and humidity (what can we say - Texas in June!), everyone had a great time. The picnic is one of two events held annually that gives our Hope Families a chance to visit with each other, visit with birth famillies and reconnect with Hope Cottage. DJ Mark Ridlen provided musical entertainment and kept the crowds moving, especially during the limbo contest.  The Therapy Dogs were a smash hit again.   We snacked, we laughed, we smiled and we are looking forward to next year. Tomorrow's blogpost, Picture Tuesday, will feature more pictures from the picnic, but this photo was too good to wait until tomorrow to share.

Dr. Kenneth McIntosh, our oldest living Hope Baby, held our youngest Hope Baby during a group picture of all the Hope Babies in attendance.  We managed to capture this moment.
