Mehaber and Father's Day

This weekend was the annual Ethiopian Kids Community summer Mehaber (picnic). The first stop of any Ethiopian kids picnic is of course, the TATTOOS ... Lucy needed some ink.

Lucy and Morgan showing solidarity during a kids game.

Nora joined us in some dancing during the opening ceremony.

The kids have some rhythm.

Nora the super model. Her mom claims that she has had no professional portraits.

but really, look at her, clearly senior portrait poses

Nora tilt your head slightly toward the right and look up a little. Now we just need to add the fuzzy dreamy look ...

Lucy slept in the closet until 3am when she bounced into bed with mommy.
