Oregon or BUST!

We just got back from a few wet and soggy days in Oregon. Our oldest niece Avery was getting baptized and we wanted to be there for her special day. While we were out there Oregon had a major storm. It knocked the power out to my mom's house for a couple of hours and, depending on the child, some enjoyed the darkness while others did not. We did, however, round up some candles and flashlights, it was "roughing" it. Ayda got a lesson in piano from her Gaco and had so much fun being mothered by her cousins. Ayda also has gone against the tradition of calling of my mom "grammy", she likes to stand out, to be one of a kind. She called my mom GACO. The trip was so much fun and we can't wait to go back.

I can't believe that Avery is old enough to get baptized - I remember the days of the "i'm humry and going to grammies!" Boy - it has sure been forever!! we are old :)
