Writing out my blogs of Mom's visit has been an exercise in writing the longest blogs EVER. Oh my GAWD.

We're going to make this short and sweet. Saturday the Cherry Fest rocked. Sunday we all slept in a little bit more than usual and then we picked up Mom and Jack, plus their luggage and the eight thousand six hundred, and fifty four tshirts and other assorted souvenirs that they bought while they were out here, and we headed to Portland with the whole kit n' caboodle.

Per Jack's request, we went in search of Otto's Sausage Kitchen - they make and sell one of the top ten hot dogs in the country. Their t-shirts say so. I know because my Mom bought tshirts for Jack and Skippy and myself. Good stuff.

Then we went to OMSI. We have a family membership so it was well worth a couple of hours just hanging out. Mom treated us all to a laser show in the planetarium (by that I mean she paid for tickets, not that she actually controlled the lasers) and that was a lot of fun. It was set to music and really pretty dang neat. Banana danced, Kbear stared, and the Chunk fell asleep.

After OMSI we made a quick stop at POWELL'S BOOKS - it deserves all caps. Trust me. And finally, we went to dinner and made our way to Mom and Jack's hotel where we said good-bye. I only cried a little bit. It really wasn't too bad this time because we were already making plans to be in Chicago this summer. So we gave hugs all around and finally, after six days of jam packed family fun, we headed home.

Love you guys and miss you already! It was a blast!
