We had a great time in Portland (pictures here). All of the extended family was there, which was fun for Nicky and Sam and me. Kate was completely overwhelmed by all the new people. Much to grandma’s chagrin, little Kate was attached to me the entire time and anytime that she wasn’t touching me she was frantically scanning the room for me. She also made it very clear that no one else was allowed to touch her at all. Nice to be needed, but what a bummer to be needed so much when there were so many hands available and wanting to help!
We went to the zoo while we were in Portland. It was hot, hot, hot. Of course, the benefit of going to the zoo when it’s hot out is that you have to get snow cones. We also rode on the train which made Nicky a happy, happy boy.
