Father's Day and More...

Over the weekend we made a fast and furious trip to Oregon, for a variety of reasons. First, to celebrate my Grandpa's 90th birthday! His birthday is actually later this week, and he had no idea we were coming. I know, you probably shouldn't surprise someone that old, but it really was fun:) The entire family went bowling for the celebration. Grandpa is an amazing bowler for being 90 and legally blind. He was one of the top scorers!

The second celebration was of course, Father's Day. I hadn't spent the day with my own dad in quite a few years, so was fun to celebrate with he and Mike. We took them to OMSI where everyone had a good time. Well not so much the girls during the OMNIMAX showing, as they both got scared and cried for some reason, but they did like solving a crime at the CSI interactive experience and the play area where we became a family of chipmunks...

We have also been wanting to visit with my grandma since she had a stroke back in May, but hadn't had an opportunity. She fell a couple of weeks ago and broke her shoulder, received stitches for a cut above her eye, and is extremely black and blue, but her speech is back and her spirits are amazingly high. Kaia proclaiming to her "Grandma, I love you soooo much" probably helped with that! You can see from the photos how traumatic her fall must have been, as her fall was two weeks before the photos were taken and she still is quite black, blue, and puffy. Not something you want to go through when you're 93!

Love the pony tails and the super hero shoes! The girls are getting so big. I wish we could just hang at the park for the day but thanks for posting pictures so it feels a little bit like we did see you.
