The August Round-Up Continues

The Hamiltons rolled out on August 2, and the Childs family rolled in that evening. They spent four nights with us, but I wish it could have been more. We got to meet Thorne for the first time; she is exceedingly delightful.

We carried on the cocktail theme; our guests serendipitously brought a bottle of Pimm's for making the quintessential British summer beverage, the Pimm's Cup. And Shaun made Singapore Slings.

Of course there were activities. We went to the Crown Point Vista House and used its marble bathrooms.

Unfortunately, Nels got a bad (though short-lived) stomach bug, so I stayed home with him for the rest of the outings. These included a walk/hike at our local Lacamas Park and a field trip to Portland to visit Powell's, with stops at Kenny and Zuke's for a Reuben, and, of course, for coffee at Stumptown.

Here are some pictures of the kids at Multnomah Falls, another destination we made it to before Nels got sick:

So sweet.

So cute.

So ridiculous.

So ridiculously cute.

Please come again. Any time.

Love the pics! Especially the adorable one of Steve & child. I'm getting fond flashbacks of the way cool skateboarder Steve zooming all over La Mirada in his high school days.

Good times.

We had such a delightful time with you all! Your boys were great entertainment as well. We will always remember our time fondly as it was when Thorne started to crawl. Hopefully we'll make it back before another four years go by!
