We headed down to Portland this past weekend with Goggy, to explore the city and see a concert.  Amelia and Soren got a huge kick out of staying at the Kennedy School, with the blackboards in our room, all of the interesting art on the walls, the movie theater, and especially the mosaic covered pool!  We had some great food at Pok Pok and the food-cart pod across the street, and spent a lot of time playing at (and in) several of Portland's cool fountains and splash parks.  We also met up with a couple of Mommy's friends from college - Sam and Carlotta - and their kids for a fun brunch.

Zoe's Visit & Rehearsal

Auntie Zoe took a short break from wedding planning and visited us for a few days.  We had a great time showing her Seattle in the summer, and the weather definitely cooperated.  The kids showed off some of their latest gymnastics moves, and we held several rehearsals for Zoe's upcoming wedding.  Her flower girl and ringbearer are definitely ready for their jobs!

Fun on the Swings

Amelia and Soren have been spending lots of time on the swing sets at the neighborhood parks this summer.  Soren has graduated to the big-kid swings, while Amelia has mastered the art of pumping her legs, though she still demands an "underdog" push every now and then.

Card Sharks

Soren and Amelia have become experts at the matching game, and have been getting everyone to play it with their new Sesame Street cards.
