Farewell San Diego. Hello Oregon!!

I am excited about this trip! We get to see Auntie and Ratchet and their sons Faces and Chub. Yep, that's right. Auntie had her baby. It's a bit of a bummer that he couldn't wait one more day, because I was going to take pictures during the birth, but I'm sure she's relieved to have him out. He was born this morning, weighing in at a healthy 10 lbs. 1 oz. Auntie, of course, delivered him naturally at a birthing center. The woman is a powerhouse! I can't wait to meet the little bugger, hang out with my sister, watch more Olympics and explore the natural wonders of Oregon with my camera. Wish me luck with traveling tomorrow. I'm going to need it!

Liz, those pics are awesome!!! I can't wait to see more! When you're back you owe me a phone call! haha.

Oh, um, these are not my pictures. I pilfered them off the Internet. I wasn't even in Oregon yet when I posted this post. :) But I'm flattered you guys would even believe me capable of these! :) Evelyn, I most certainly do owe you a phone call. I remembered every day that I never called you back, but I just kept getting swamped with stuff - especially preparation for this trip. I'll call you for sure when I get back!
