Our yearly trip to Portland was fabulous as always. It is always filled with lots of friends, playtime, fun outings and of course- tons of shopping! We stayed with our best friends the Washburn's. Five kids in one house! So busy, but we all survived and had so much fun. Playing laser guns with Emma. Lukas and Emma are four days apart and used to be neighbors. They are buddies.

Erik's college friend Jake and his girlfriend Bethany traveled from San Francisco this March to come visit us. We had a few days to pack in some Swiss adventures. Had a blast. They brought us mac and cheese and beef jerky.
Bethany brought an ABC animal book for the boys. They loved reading it with her.
