The puppies! (or as Mike called them, the "Naked Mole Rats"!)
Cousins playing basketball
The moms--on Saturday afternoon the three of us went to dinner at Seasons and Regions between the "Grease" performance--this is always my highlight of Mom's Day weekend (a meal out with my sis and mom!)
My beautiful sister with Daniel
Playing in Mom and Dad's spacious backyard
Ryan with Grandpa (it's hard to get them both to smile naturally for photos--so I thought this was a great shot!! Good job Mom!)
The kids gathered around a tiny DVD player, with our English houseguest, Ali. Ali arrived in Portland on Sunday--he's Mike's cousin's son, and he's on his "gap year," traveling around the world. He's been to Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, LA, and San Francisco. Next he's headed north to Seattle and British Columbia. Mike and I have agreed that we can't imagine ourselves traveling solo around the world at age 18! He's very intrepid--and it's been fun to have a young man as a houseguest!
