We recently made another amazing connection with the assistance of our adoption agency - we met Zander's birth cousin Ethan! Zander's birth mother and Ethan's birth mother are sisters, and Ethan is less than a month older than Zander. Ethan's family lives in Rochester, MN, and was in town to visit the Children's Museum. The boys spent a lot of time playing at the water tables in the World Works exhibit. Here are Ethan (left) and Zander playing in their water aprons: (Unfortunately Mommy didn't have her camera that day, so the quality of our photos - courtesy of Daddy's phone - aren't great.)
Zander and Ethan's older sister Ellie play with suds:

The boys moved onto the 'sand table' where they enjoyed playing with vehicles:
All of the excitement proved to be exhausting!
