Trip to Oregon

The much awaited trip to Oregon has come and gone. It was tons of fun to have everyone on my side of the family together yet again this summer. Unfortunately it will be the last time for a while :(.

Day 1:
Jonathan, Michael, and I drove through the night last Wednesday and arrived in Beaverton, Oregon mid-morning on Thursday. Michael was such a trooper with the 11-hour car drive. We only had to stop twice to feed him, but each of those times he immediately fell back asleep. Had it not been for the sun coming out I think he would have slept the rest of the time. That evening, we watched Paul and Jonathan play softball. It's been quite a long time since Jonathan has played ball and he quickly learned that he's not as fast as he used to be. He got a nice lump on his shin to prove it. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it...but here are a few from that night:

I don't know what Paul is looking at...

Jonathan manages to hit the ball...
...and get on base. Please notice how dirty he manages to get...

The rest of us just watched and ate snow cones. James however made a new friend at the park:

And Grandma Gracie took great pleasure in getting in as much Michael time as she could...

Paul's team was pretty much masacred in the first game, but they managed to win the second one. I definitely miss watching Paul play ball!

Coming Next:
Day 2: Our visit to the Portland Temple and the Japanese Gardens
Day 3: Multnomah Falls, blackberry picking and a pick-up baseball game at the park
Day 4: The Oregon Coast, Tillamook Cheese Factory, and a visit with Adam
Day 5: Pool time at the hotel and Mariners vs. Angels at Safeco
Day 6: Being Tourists in Seattle and visiting the Whatcott Fun Center
