Ethiopian friends

We got to spend three days with some of the kids that Daniel lived with in Ethiopia. It was so fun to meet everyone in person and to see our kids together.

On Monday night, we met at an Ethiopian restaurant to have dinner.

Handsome Noah:

Abel and Sara:

The whole group:

Andrew wanted me to take his picture drinking like a big boy:

Tuesday, we had planned to go to the sprinkler park but the weather did not cooperate so we hung out at home and then went to the mall play area to let the kids run off some energy.

Erkinesh loved helping Daniel.

After the mall, we went to Jill's house for dinner. The kids all had a great time playing together. Poor Noah got hurt and had to make a trip to urgent care. He was ok but had to be watched for a concussion.

Harper painted all the girls' nails.

Wednesday, we hung out in Millenium and Grant park.

My boys LOVE this little guy:

Jada was awesome with the little kids.
