My sister and her pack came down for 6 days, so that we could spend lots of time with my nephew and niece, Benton and Mia. Benton is 2.5 years old and Mia is 9 months old. They are a handful! After spending a few days with them, I'm in awe of my sister who has managed to take care of these two when her husband was deployed. She is a wonder woman. Since Benton doesn't nap anymore, Aaron and I found ourselves taking cat naps during the day just to keep up with him!
Here are some photos of our time in Portland, we didn't get to see or do as much as we wanted but the family time spent there was first rate!
Mia, looking very much like her mother when she was a wee one.
