With Mimi and Opa

What an action-packed week with Mimi and Opa! Here are the highlights:I know what you're thinking: we look really cool in this picture with Brad talking on his phone and me talking on my imaginary phone, but Finn makes up for the lameness of his parents with the awesomeness of his red shades. Here we are going to Portland's Saturday Market. It's, like, one of the largest outdoor markets in the nation--or so I've heard. But I'd believe it because they have so much cool stuff there and it's so fun to look at everything and want to buy everything but then end up buying nothing because you just can't decide. Someday I'm going to get some art or a necklace or a big wooden bowl and then I'll blog about it. The kids loved feeding the chickens at the bed and breakfast where Brad's parents stayed (after we were done using them for their babysitting). It was such a nice place up in the Columbia Gorge. Brad and I got a sitter one evening and went with his parents to dinner at their restaurant. We had the most amazing 7 course meal imaginable! We happened to be the only people dining there that night, so we also got incredible individual service with the chef himself coming out to tell us about each dish. What an experience!Here's Finn looking through the coop--a cool pic.We walked around the temple one afternoon to enjoy the beauty and the spirit. The Portland Temple is so pretty, I'd have to say it is my second favorite (Oakland is #1). Finn thinks it's fun to fly up the stairs...Mommy and Mimi think it's tiring.This is Galla's idea of posing and smiling for the camera. I think it looks more "monkey impression" and less "top model."Galla and Finn's most favorite thing to do with Mimi is watch videos on her laptop. She finds all kinds of silly clips and cartoons on youtube of doggies and princesses. Finn's a big fan of the headphones. Mimi is so fun! Thanks for the good times...we already miss you!

That last picture is the cheesiest, smiliest I have ever seen Finn. Too cute! I also love his rad red sunglasses. Does he actually leave them on?! Way too cool. And a seven course meal?! I can't even think of seven things to eat in one sitting. Ok, obviously I can after tonight, cheesecake, brownies, cream puffs, chocolate covered strawberries, lemon bars.... :) Well, it was fun seeing you tonight in what ended up being a little girls night out. See you soon!
