Can you see his mouth open as he's crying?!
Lily, on the other hand, is having a complete BLAST! She was loving the sand and water!
I finally sat Jameson down on my lap and let him play in the sand, hoping that he would warm up to it all. Who knew he'd freak out?!
This one's for you mom! (If you can't see it, it's a kite of Mickey Mouse :)
And the boy finally got used to sand and water! YAY! He loved splashing around in this water and playing. Phew! I was getting worried he'd be some weirdo that wouldn't ever like the beach!
AJ and Lily playing a little baseball. The weather was perfect too! It was really warm and just a little breeze. I was hot since I wore jeans! I was thinking we'd be cold...thankfully, I was wrong.
Jameson made some friends with complete strangers. And his shirt is off. And his belly is big. And I love it!
We had such a fun afternoon! We only stayed at the beach for 2 hours, but that was enough time for the kiddos. We then went for a fun dinner at Mo's. We had a great time and I was thankful we chose to be spontaneous that day!

Trying out a new table at Ikea. And holding a starbucks. Life couldn't be better!
Next, we headed to Omsi. I was especially excited for this part since I hadn't been since I was in middle school! AJ was not thrilled to go. I really wanted to see an Omnimax movie, but it's $9 a person! No thank you. So, we just walked around. And walked around. And I got bored. But, AJ was having a ball.
See? He loved these little mind game stations they had. He wanted to figure them all out. And there were probably 50 of them! Ok, maybe not that much. But, we spent a lot of time on them!
I had a berry cobbler. It was good, but not my favorite. I still ate it though!
After dessert we headed to my brother's band concert. We haven't been to one of his gigs since Lily was a wee little baby. Kinda hard to get out for a late night concert with kids! Anyway, it was fun that his band was playing in Portland! I was getting tired after dessert and was kinda ready for bed! And it was only 9:45pm but we persevered and had a blast!
Me and Joel before they played!
Here is Symmetry/Symmetry playing. They were really good!
The next morning, we headed back towards downtown Portland and had brunch at Mother's Bistro-so yummy!! We've only been here two times but we love their food.
After brunch we went back to Bridgeport and saw a movie-thankfully we had free movie tickets! On our way home we stopped at Woodburn outlets for a bit then went and picked up the kids! What a wonderful weekend :) I will say that on our actual anniversary AJ brought home some beautiful flowers. See?He also wrote a card for me. Before I type it out, let me say he went with a more funny version this year. And we've recently started playing this game where we hide things under each other's pillow and see how long it'll take for the other to find out. Yes, we are lame. But, it's funny and we laugh :) Anyway, here's the poem:
