September already?

So I look at the calender and its already Sept 1st, where did this summer go? The 4 months since we have been home from Ethiopia have flown by and I certainly didn't sleep them away. My baby is no more, Noah Tamirat is very much a toddler,a little boy, when and how did that happen? I touched on this briefly in my last post but when our company was here a couple weeks ago we took everyone out for Ethiopian food on Saturday. It was Sean's parents and grampy, my parents and niece and nephew and then Sean and I with Noah. Other then Sean, Noah and I none of them had any experience with Ethiopian food other then seeing pictures and here us talk about it. Most of them aren't very adventurous eaters and a couple are borderline picky eaters. I"m happy to say that everyone enjoyed their dinner and I'm so proud of my niece and nephew for going out of their comfort zone and giving it a try. Here are a few pictures.Mimi, Papap,Grandpa, Derek,Brandi, Mommom, Noah and Grampy.Grandpa, Grandma, Derek , Brandi, Mommom, Noah and GrampyNoah enjoying some lamb perhaps?

Noah ate everything he was given including spicy stuff and seemed to enjoy it all. I'm sure we will be going for Ethiopian food more often and hopefully we will be able to meet up with the local adoption group that gets togeather here every other month.

Looks yummy! I love Ethiopian food, but whenever we go we always go through a drive thru for our boys. They try it each time we are there, but it still isn't their favorite! The girls on the other hand, cannot get enough. I am so glad that you had a great time with your family.

Awww....love the pics. He is getting big, but still so cute! I love the Ethiopian food too, and can't wait until we get to go somewhere where we can have some made for us. I am not the best at making it or anything really. Sounds like a great time with the family though!

No drive thru at the Ethiopian place. We go to McDonald's for the boys on our way to the Ethiopian restaurant... sorry I didn't explain myself well!
