Portland Trip Part I - Dad/Scott

The beginning of April took Natalie and I to Portland as it would be the last time we could fly without having to buy Natalie a plane ticket. Unfortunately, Nathan had exams in school, so he was unable to make it. However, Natalie and I had a great time with my family.

Natalie loves airplanes so we arrived at the airport an hour early to watch some of them land and takeoff. I am surprised at how well Natalie did on the airplane rides, and how much she seemed to comprehend. When we took off Natalie would look out the window and say, "mommy we are going up, up, and away in the sky." She sure is a cutie-pie!

When we first got to Portland, we spent a few days with Dad celebrating Natalie's up-coming birthday. I can't believe she is going to be 2 years old! But, as you can see, we had a blast, and Natalie sure kept her Grandpa and Uncle Scotty busy.

She even got Grandpa up in the jungle gym to jump on the trampoline, play Ring-a-round the Rosie, and slide down the slide!


After playing and playing, we decided it was time to eat something. Natalie loved her birthday dinner, as she is not normally allowed to have soda-pop. Can you tell she is enjoying it?!?!?!

Finally, we headed back to Grandpa's house for Cake, Ice-Cream, and Presents. I think Natalie was a little distracted with the presents to eat much Cake. Grandpa and Uncle Scotty sure did spoil Natalie with gifts. Grandpa got her some Elmo Jammies (still her favorite jammies), and a soccer ball (which the entire family has enjoyed). Uncle Scott got her a small power-wheel, or as Natalie calls it, "a motorcycle". She loves to ride it to the mailbox with us, and even takes it for a spin in the backyard.

Thanks Grandpa and Uncle Scotty - We had a BLAST!!!!!
