Mike and I headed to Portland, Oregon to visit Christina's best friend Shannon and her two children, Braden and new baby Sienna and our dear friends from Arizona that recently moved back to Portland, Beret and Eric Dahm and their two children, Mia and new baby Catcher! Shannon left shortly after we got to town on a previously scheduled trip so we spent as much time with her as we could before she left - and enjoyed staying with, and spending time with Beret and Eric while falling in love with their new little man!
This picture was take shortly after we arrived - Shai met us at the Dahm's so I could meet Sienna! From left to right - Sienna, Mike with Harrison and Baby Catcher.
Aunt Shai with lil man!
Here I am with Sienna - she is such a happy little girl!!
And so lovable!!!
Shai and I took the bambinos to the mall - here's our car seat advertisement
How cute is Sienna in this hat??!!
Braden and Harrison checking each other out.
After Shannon left we spent the rest of the time with the Dahms. Beret's sister Kirsten invited us over for a cookout at her new house for Grandparent's day... they live on Lake Oswego, Oregon - the whole time I was there it felt like we were in a Coastal Living photo shoot - she set tables outside overlooking the lake with long white tablecloths and candles - and can you see the view in the background - the picture really doesn't do it justice - but is was gorgeous!
Harrison loving on Auntie Beret!
Playing with the lil' man
Later that day as the sun was setting we went out on the boat oohing and ahhing at the multi-million dollar lakeside homes... below - Eric's sister, Sarah and Beret.
Beret and I put Catcher and Harrison together on the floor and they were so cute together - fast friends in the making!
Mia was so sweet with both the boys...
Harrison loves to get the death grip on hair - Mia's hair was no exception
We spent an afternoon in the Pearl District - eating at one of my favorite lunch spots, Elephants (Shai introduced me to this awesome restaurant a couple years ago) and then we walked around and window shopped - Harrison was whipped and zonked out in his carrier. Just like his daddy the kid can sleep anywhere!
Chomping on those fingers!
Beret, Eric, Harrison and baby Catcher!
Beret got this little Bee outfit for Mia to play in - she was wearing it when we arrived from the airport and insisted on wearing over to the dinner at the Beret's sister's house. Mike and I bought her this little bubble blowing lawn mower for her 2nd birthday (which we later found out was a huge hit because bubbles and lawn mowers are two of her current favorite items... who knew??) I just died laughing when I walked outside to walk HayLeigh and saw her in the bumble bee outfit moving the lawn with her purse! A true modern chic!
Mia loving on HayLeigh.
Here's a pic Beret sent of Mia with her lawn mower - isn't she adorable!
Our little guy and can sit up with support and I propped him up on this chair and couldn't resist the precious poses he was making! How handsome is he!!!
