To the Great Pacific Northwest!!!

Modest Mama and her crew have decided to head out and see what kind of trouble we can find in the Great Pacific Northwest.
Here we are at Mount Hood in June 2004.

It is hard to find places as beautiful as Mount Hood on a summer day.

I am not sure what our schedule is while we are out there this time. Since our entire family(on both sides) is in Oregon right now and no one in my family has met Margaret yet, I am guessing that we are going to be pretty busy. The exciting part is that my Grandma doesn't know that we are coming. I told her money is pretty tight and we wouldn't be able to visit this summer. This was especially hard for her since Margaret is her first great-granddaughter in 17 years and also since I named Margaret after her and also after her mother.

Well, our Japan trip got put on hold for a bit and so we were able to come up with the airfare for Portland. Other members of the family agreed to keep our visit a secret so that Grandma would be surprised. Everyone helped out to provide us a couple cars to use and a place to stay. Since this is a scheduled post, we have survived the two flights to Portland (arriving at 3am Eastern time) and Grandma has already been surprised. I will try to post some photos of my beautiful Grandma holding her precious great-grandchildren as soon as I can.
