Happy Ethiopian New Year!

Liam has dinner with the traditional Ethiopian bread injera, made from the very iron-rich teff grain that is found natively in the highlands of Ethiopia. The grain is made into a flatbread like a tortilla or a chapati, but spongier.

We celebrated the Ethiopian New Year 2004! Yes, 2004, because the Ethiopian calendar which is based on an Alexandrian calendar has a difference of 7 years from the Gregorian calendar.

At the lake... what's left of it.

Lake Buchanan, where the waterfront has receded about 1000 yards from its normal position...
But it was still all fun for Liam.

Grandma & Grandpa visit

Who doesn't love a visit from Grandma and Grandpa? All the way from Nebraska!

Grandpa helps Liam down the new slide (first time!) in the backyard that Liam thinks the UPS guy gave to him.

Riding the train at Zilker Park

Happy grandson wearing his favorite letter on the shirt that Grandma made for him!

Talking a walk with Grandma and the mama.

Hmmmm....Grandma's rollerskates or the firetruck? Definitely Grandma's rollerskates.
(btw, are those swanky rollerskates or what?)

The mandatory trip to Santa Ritas

Kale Chips with Daddy. Liam eats his greens.
