Getting Ready for Ethiopia!

Summer=swimming in the pool!!! We have had lots of playdates and playgroups in the pool, but even if it's just our family the kids love playing in the water until they are tan little raisins. I am amazed at the difference a couple of months can make! At the beginning of the summer, I would have to push Tonito down so he could "dive" and pick up toys at the bottom- now he looks like one of those Chinese pearl divers! He dives down and holds his breath so long as he sweeps the pool floor picking up rockets and toys. Vivi too can now dive to the bottom with her little goggles on. Such a difference from the little girl who was scared to get her face wet!

We visited the Blue Bell Creamery and saw how ice cream was made. Vivi decided to endure the stomachache and eat the ice cream she is allergic to (cow's milk). They loved seeing the big machines squirt the ice cream into the tubs... and the ice cream bars on the conveyor belts. "Do the workers get to eat any?" Yes! They are encouraged to eat as much as they want!

After the ice cream we ran around in the park for a while before heading home. The lazy days of summer!
