Big Weekend, Big Week

We had some special visitors over the weekend.  Our niece, her husband, and their little guy made the drive up from Texas arriving Thursday afternoon.  That’s right folks, Tsegaw came to visit!!!!!

It was a jammed packed weekend of visiting, being entertained by our children, and getting together with some other adoptive families for a visit to an orchard and pizza place.  The most special part of the weekend though, was giving our kids the opportunity to spend time together. 

Lili enjoyed giving Tsegaw a lot of attention and Tsegaw ate up the attention.  Naomi thought is was great fun having someone closer to her age to hang out with and Tsegaw was more than happy to follow Naomi around.

Unfortunately, the visit is now over, but the week ahead is going to be busy, busy, busy. 

Dave left early this morning for a business trip to Seattle.  On Wednesday, the girls and I leave early for our trip toOrange County, California.  Daddy will join us on Friday morning and late Friday afternoon we will head up to Laguna Beach to attend my niece’s wedding.  On Sunday and Monday we will make a visit to Mickey’s House – better known as Disneyland – before heading home Tuesday.  In between we plan to make a trip to the beach, do some shopping and enjoy some of Southern California’s fine cuisine.  We are very much looking forward to our trip and I am especially looking forward to watching the girls as they play on the beach and the look on their faces when they enter Disneyland for the first time.

I will try to post a little while we are gone, but until then I hope you’ll enjoy some pictures from our weekend. 

Wonder what yummy things we can find in here?

Hey Naomi, this yellow bottle of stuff looks good!
Yeah Tsegaw, that does look good. 

Okay, Naomi it’s my turn to hold the yellow bottle!
No Tsegaw, it’s my turn to hold the yellow bottle!
