A few of my favorite things (Oregon)

Some of my favorite things of our Oregon vacation:
1. Playing volleyball for three hours, two nights in a row! Totally awesome!
2. Playing Boggle
3. Visiting the cheese factory and eating some Sweet Centennial ice cream
4. Finally meeting my niece, Emily! Of course, I overloaded my camera with pictures of her.

^^They look alike, don't they?^^
^^Singing Popcorn Popping^^ they were both on different parts of the song though.

^^Emily was such a cheeser. She knew what the camera was all about^^

^^Michael wasn't a huge fan of Emily touching or hugging him^^
Actually, on our last day when we were saying our goodbyes, I asked Michael to give Emily a hug, and he actually went for it. But then they ended up bonking heads, and that made Michael cry. But after he calmed down, I asked him if he wanted to try to give her another hug. He walked up to her, and then slouched on the ground and hugged the floor next to her. *just to be safe I guess!

Yeah, they look like they could be twins! How far apart are they in age? I love the look on Michael's face in the touching/hugging picture- that and the pop corn popping! So fun! Great pictures.

Thanks for posting those pictures--it's great to see both of the babies--tho they are getting quite grown up already. Sounds like a great vacation!
