Welcome home Lechame!

My friend Jody arrived home from Ethiopia today with perhaps the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen! I met her and her husband at the airport, along with a few mutual friends and 2 ladies from our agency. She had nothing but wonderful things to say and although exhausted, was glowing!

Congratulations, Jody, Chris, and big brother....enjoy the new addition to your family!

Bikes, BBQs, and the Beach!

I think summer has officially come!

This past weekend, we were invited to a BBQ at a newly found friend's home. The family has twin boys that have been home from Ethiopia for a few years and are the cutest little guys ever! Also in attendance were 2 other families in the process of adopting from Ethiopia. All 4 families live within walking distance of each other!!!! It is so great to have these families so close and I look forward to many Ethio-American play dates!

This coming weekend, we are headed to the beach with a few good friends. The weather should be awesome...100 degrees here, 80 degrees at the beach! PERFECT! Directly following the beach, Brandon and I will head to Montana for a week for the 4th of July and we'll have a whole week there!

Finally, this past Friday, Brandon and I went and bought 2 nice cruiser/city bikes to get around town on. We were so excited and felt like little kids riding around our little town together. At one point he asked me to be his girlfriend and we held hands in the park :) Big stuff!

So, who would we be if we didn't take the bikes out for a little photo session?

So, what can I buy to prepare when I know nothing...

Baby or toddler? - Nope!

One child or two? - Nope!

Boy or girl? - Nope!

Hmmm...I think I need some retail therapy for sure, and something small and cute to get me through this waiting game.

Anyone have any suggestions?
