Great trip to Oregon that went flew by too fast!

We had a wonderful trip down to Oregon but it definitely flew by way too fast. It was great to see Amanda and John's folks. I wish we got to see them more often! It felt so good to hug our eldest girl and tell her in person we love her. She's doing good. She gets done with her driver's education course June 4th and already has an appointment to get her driver's license June 5th. She is busy looking for a summer job and looking forward seeing her favorite band (Green Day) in concert in Seattle in July and being able to drive herself this summer to do things with friends. She sure got a kick out of her lil sister.

LeAnne did very well with the LONG car trips. It took us 6.5 to 7 hours. We made a few stops each way to let her run around and snack. She slept very well in the car and we only had a few minor melt downs. On the way back we stopped at Multnomah Falls in Oregon. That was is a beautiful place! While at Grammy & Grampy's lil girl handled the changes well. She had fun playing with Grammy's toys, slept pretty well and was in good spirits. She started to warm up to Grammy & Grampy and even gave Grammy a kiss before we left on Sunday. I sure do wish we could see them more so LeAnne could get to know them.

LeAnne first trip to the zoo was a lot of fun! We think she really enjoyed herself. She was oohing and ahhing at all the animals that moved and was very brave to pet the goats at the petting farm. She didn't think much of the monkey's because they were not quite as animated as Disney's Oooh & Aaah. LOL!!

Overall it was a great trip. Thank-you Grammy & Grampy for everything! You always make us feel so welcome & it's fun to catch up.

Hi Dad, look at the Elephants.

She loves being on daddy's shoulders!
