Put a Bird On It

As I mentioned before, we were up in the Portland area a couple weeks ago for Poppa Peter's birthday.  I took my nice camera up there, but did not once pull it out of the suitcase.  To say we were busy the whole time is an understatement.  It was such a great visit -- we loved hanging out with the in-laws and cousins and Poppa Peter's party {say that three times fast} was really nice.

I did manage to take some cell phone pictures, so here's a little iPhone dump, Portland style.




Playground fun

Grandma and Poppa have the funnest toys!

The Portland Zoo is so beautiful and green.  And, of course, Packy the elephant was our favorite!

A little post-zoo treat!


Celebrating Daddy's birthday too.



When Daddy finds a watering hole to play in, Mommy has to buy a new outfit that's dry! ;)

So blessed.

Carbed it up for breakfast...


...and took a family nap.

Believe it or not, I didn't take one picture from the party or of us before the party all dressed up in our outfits.  I'm pretty sure Marissa took a family photo of us, so if I get a copy of it, I will post it.  It was just so hectic getting all of us ready to go.  

A very special thanks to Peter and Irma for being such wonderful hosts and allowing us to mess up stay in your lovely home!
