What a week

This last week we went down to Portland/Vancouver for the week to visit family and get away for a while. The main reason to go to Portland was to see the blessing of my brother and sister in laws first baby boy, Liam. What a special boy he is.
It was a great trip...we had a lot of great food (thanks Rachel!!) Got a lot of new recipes, had some great conversations, made some great memories. The boys did so well and had so much fun.
Here are just a few of my favorite pictures, or this post would get way too long.
Matt, Erin and the handsome baby Liam

Look at those cheeks!!!Finally a "good" picture of Gabe...we can never get him to just "smile"
At Omsi...James looks a bit uncomfortable doesn't he?

My favorite picture of all....story behind picture: Every trip we take, James ALWAYS grows a beard because with work, he HAS to shave every day no matter what. So by the end of EVERY vacation, James has a beard. So when it is time to go back to work, we always get to see the "stash". It always makes me laugh and I honestly cannot hold a conversation with him....at least not a serious one :) I love you James!

And the rest of the photos:

I can actually grow a stash here at school but I see people sporting them around and it makes me think twice before trying to grow one. The look so ridiculous. Unless you have a handlebar with a ten gallon hat. "I'm your huckleberry." Maybe not a 10 gallon, but you know what I mean.
