We went to Portland last month to discover the city and reconnect with some good friends from Hawaii and San Francisco. We were so hopeful for our much needed vacation, and things were going swimmingly till Mike got the flu. A killer, passed out on the bathroom floor, moaning about the nearness of death, stomach churning, body aching flu. He was a pitiable site. Mike had been working so hard up until our little trip that when he finally took a moment to relax the bug pounced and was ready to ravage his body.

By the end of the trip Mike had rallied considerably, at which point Nico and myself succumbed to the bug, albeit to a much lesser degree. As awful as being sick is, it is a truth that begin sick while not in your own home is undeniably much worse. Thanks to the Kanes and the Kessies for letting us sick up your homes and test the fortitude of your plumbing!

We went to Sauvie Island to pick strawberries and look at the animals.

Delmer was so good about sharing his toys with Nico

I love your life. Oh, and I am proud of Delmer for sharing so well. He could teach that Asher a thing or two!
