Ethiopian New Years...

Yesterday was Ethiopian New Years. A big celebration accompanied by a party. Maeve and I ventured to the new Ethiopian community center to check out the festivities. True to form, everyone that we met were lovely and super kind to Maeve and myself. We hope to plug in to different activities the community center offers... Here are some pics of the day:

All dressed up in her Ethiopian dress and ready to head out... Just gotta read a book first...


And then play with my loud toy...


Maeve offering to help with the coffee ceremony...


We have learned that we don't need to show up on time because things were operating on Ethiopian time :-) Maeve took a quick rest before the party really ramped up.


Then there was dancing...


Maeve was swept up and clapped along with the music...


We had a great day celebrating our first Ethiopian New Years together...
