Oregon/Washington Trip 2011

Our family went to Oregon and Washington this November.  It was chilly, but beautiful with all the autumn colors surrounding us.  Here are some fun moments of our trip....

The girls and I met my friend from high school, Shanna, and her four kids at the park.  It was a beautiful day.

My friend Jessica and her kids (Hannah is in this picture with the girls) were able to spend the afternoon with us on the day Hannah had piano lessons from my dad.

Emma always looks forward to seeing her friend Kate when we visit Oregon.  Kate got to have dinner with us at Grammy's house.  Emma and Madi also had fun attending AWANA with some of their friends.

My friend, Jackie's daughter, Sabina and Madi reading a book.

Emma and Chris (not my Chris, but Nicole's Chris) playing Phase 10.

We were able to stop in Portland to visit my friends, Jackie and Nicole and their families for lunch.  We had a wonderful time catching up, unfortunaltly we couldn't stay longer.
Jackie and her daughter, Sabina (Jaun had to work).

We were able to make another stop in Washington, visiting our friends (Aaron, Stephanie, Ellie, and Brady).  They blessed us with a wonderful dinner.  The kids had a blast playing while the adults chatted away.

My friend, Sandy and her husband Bryan opened their cottage to us to stay while visiting with my brother and family.  Emma and I were able to attend Sandy's baby shower.  Sandy had her baby at 30 weeks; I was able to go with Bryan and Sandy to the hospital to meet their adorable baby, Sydney.  Sydney is doing great, continuing to grow.

Debra bought these cute hats for the girls.  The girls love wearing them.

Didn't get pictures of everyone on the trip, but got some pictures of the dogs.  So funny.  The girls looooved playing with Opie (above) and Mekia (below).

Emma and her cousin, Samuel (2 months old)
