A big trip

I got to take my first airplane ride this week! Mommy, Daddy, and I flew down to visit Granddad and Grandma Barbara in Lake Havasu, AZ. It was a two hour flight from Portland to Las Vegas and I did great. We had a row of three seats to ourselves and I had fun standing on my seat peeking at the lady sitting behind me and standing on the floor using my seat as a table for all of my toys. I was very quiet almost the entire time....probably because I was eating for the majority of the trip :-) As soon as we landed I fell asleep on Mommy's shoulder and she got to carry me all the way through the airport. Granddad and Grandma Barbara were there to pick us up so we could make the 2.5 hour drive to their house in Havasu.

We spent most of the week relaxing at the house. I had a lot of fun walking in circles around the pool and playing with the rocks in the yard.

We spent one afternoon in Oatman, an old western mining town off of Route 66. We ate lunch at the old hotel, watched the gun fight show in the street, walked around the shops. I think I embarassed Daddy and Granddad at one point. We were standing outside one of the shops and a lady in a wheelchair was coming towards us and I kept pointing at her and yelling "ah oh, ah oh!" clear until she passed us. Hopefully I didn't offend her too much...I was just confused why a grown woman was in a stroller.

There are lots of wild burros walking around the streets of Oatman and every time I saw one I would point and announce, "dog!" Hey, the have four legs, a tail, and pointy ears...that's a dog right?

I did pretty well on the flight home too. I got a little grumpy towards the end though. I think a two hour flight is the max I can handle at this point. My ears were bothering me a little on the way into Portland. I kept pointing to my ears saying, "ah oh" until Mommy found a pacifier for me.

It was a great trip and we all had a lot of fun. Hopefully we can go back every year!

I also found out some big news this week...I'M GOING TO BE A BIG BROTHER!!! I'm not sure what that means yet but everybody is making a big deal out of it so it must be something exciting!
