Somehow, beavers got into our house and mercilessly attacked Simeon's crib. We've taken steps to discourage further attacks and to prevent Simeon from getting ahold of any more paint and wood chips that are left behind.
Emmett and I had a wonderful time on our weekend get-away to Portland. Friday, we went to Bob's Red Mill where we met up with a school friend of mine who I haven't seen since 10th grade. She brought her son along, and after lunch, the boys played at the park. Then, it was off to Powell's City of Books, Lloyd Center, and a late dinner at IHOP. On Saturday, Emmett and I spent most of the day at OMSI, went swimming at the hotel, then met another friend for dinner. Before heading back up north on Sunday, I drove by our old house to show Emmett where I lived while growing up.
