Loads of Fun

We love the summer. We always think that the summer means more time...however, we are always non-stop. We thought that having Tegegn join our family would slow us down a bit. Nope. Not at all. I actually think that we are busier now than ever before. What a great busy though. The past couple of weeks included a trip to Chicago (Tegegn's first time to the city, but not his last). We went there with Chris's sister and her family. We had a great time. Tegegn LOVED the subway. We also took a boat ride and a bus ride. What a great time!

After Chris and I get home from work, we are usually outside because Tegegn literally takes our hand and drags us out there. He would live outside if we would let him. Silly boy.

My boys. I love them dearly. I never knew that I could love these guys as much as I do. I would do anything for them.

Tegegn still loves bath time. He loves having bubbles in the tub with him. As soon as the bubbles form, he sticks his mouth in the bubbles and creates a crazy ring around his mouth of soap. It makes us laugh everytime. Again, he is so silly and he doesn't even know it yet.

I thought this was a cool picture. We were in the backyard and he was going in an out of his pool. He currently likes the hose better than his pool. Maybe that will change next year. Who knows?

So, I thought I had a great deal at a garage sale in town. I found this Power Wheels 4 wheeler for $1. Great deal, right? Well, Chris ran into Walmart to purchase the 6Volt battery and $38 later it was working. Seriously, people. Who ever thought a battery would cost that much. I could understand $20, but $38. I am in the wrong business.

Tegegn still has some amazing BIG brown eyes. We call these Baby Einstein eyes because it reminds us of the first time he saw something on DVD.

It's so fun to read about Tegegn's likes right now because it seems like he and Elli are into very similar things - like the outside and shoes. :) I love the picture you posted. They are so fun. We really miss you guys!!
