Low Key Week While Dad Was Away

Mike attended a conference in Portland, Oregon during the middle of the week. While he was gone, the rest of the clan hung out around the house. Eliza seems determined to start standing (just when we were getting used to the idea of her sitting up and crawling).

Next thing you know, she and Landon will be negotiating over who gets the car keys.  Of course, we've already persuaded Landon that he has to wait until he's 18 before he can drive (yeah, right).

When Dad got back from Portland, he shared some of his adventures. He went to Powell's City of Books (which claims to be the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world) and to Voodoo Doughnut (look at the website to find out where the magic is). He brought the kids back some T-shirts and some sad stale doughnuts. Actually, while they looked a little sad, they tasted pretty good (Smart Dad froze them overnight in preparation for the trip home).

And as a bonus, more of Landon's photo work:

"Let me drink in peace, will ya?"
And, just a couple of photos of the girl in her dress-up clothes:
Love the "Mary Janes"? Trumpettes from Mike's sister Amber!  
Budding ballerina
OK, that's it. See you next week!
