Fun with Nick and Sophie

I have been meaning to post some of the photos Gene took of Nick and Sophie when we were in Portland.  Here Sophie is with "Henry" from the Beverley Cleary books....There are some great statues of her characters in Grant Park....

......and here Sophie and I are posing for Grandpa...

....we took her to Sellwood  (the antique area of Portland) and she LOVED these statues made from "found" pieces...

The next day Nick joined us....he was in school the day before....we were at "Elephant" or "castle" park near the Oregon Zoo.  Gene and I were all bundled up, but Nick was quite happy in shorts....Brrrrrr....

.......some teeter totter fun....

...at The World Forestry Center.....What a FUN place!  We all loved it!  (Their "trip" was taped and they could watch it on TV.)

....trying on masks at the center....

....and here is Sophie.....

....... now without the mask....

.....and Nick showing off his new jacket that Grandpa just bought him.....

The kids still had TONS of energy after the four days, but Grandma and Grandpa were feeling their age.
