The One with Home Sweet Home Day 3


Friday, April 22, 2011

As of today, Fox has been on 6 airplanes, visited 5 different states, seen all three living sets of his great-grandparents, and been in 1 car accident (not our fault, keep reading!).

This morning we loaded up the baby and supplies for the day and headed south to Portland.

The I-5 goes all the way down to our neck of the woods in SoCal. We've done that drive before. 18 hours!

Fox slept for the first two hours. He loves his paci...

Fox has now seen all three sets of his living great-grandparents!

Then Bethany and Peter showed up with their new baby, my niece/Fox's cousin, Evelynd.

We let them interact and mingle and it was really cute.

Fox tried to hold hold Ev's hand.

Five months makes a big difference in size!

She's so precious.

Peter loves his daughter!

So fun to see Chris' grandparents, Bethany, Peter, Evelynd, and Oregon!

Five minutes after we left to head back to Seattle we were at a red light and got rear-ended. The noise and impact really scared Fox and he started crying, poor baby. Apparently the woman who hit us was reaching for her grocery bag that had slipped onto the floor and she wasn't looking.

My parent's car got damaged pretty good, her car didn't even have a scratch. I hate car accidents. They really scare me and I always shake incessantly afterwards for like an hour.

Bye-bye Portland! See you next time!

On the way home we made a quick detour to see Stadium High School - the high school where 10 Things I Hate About You was filmed. Love that movie. The sun was shining (miracle in-and-of itself!) just so and lit up the school all pretty like. If you get a chance to read the link to wikipedia about Stadium High School, you should, it's quite interesting.

Wouldn't it be so cool to go to school here?

Then we went inside.

What a view from the windows across the water!

Stage?

Looking down the stairwell.
Photobucket
What high school bathroom has only one stall and little shelves with toiletries?
Photobucket
Back outside we went.
Photobucket
We wanted to go down and re-enact the scene where Heath Ledger sings to Julia Stiles on the stands, but it was gated off.
Photobucket
Then we enjoyed the sunset as we finished the drive back to Redmond.

Fun day!

  1. It was so great to see you all. Thanks so much for coming and major bummer about the car accident. By the way, Paige, how are you such a stealth picture taker? I had no idea that half of those were even being taken.

  2. Fox is so lucky to have been able to meet all his living great-grandparents (even if he won't remember it :)

  4. How are you!! How long are you here for? Does your Dad work in the Kirkland Google offices? We live directly behind them if he does and would LOVE to see you :)
