Thankful for Lena
Note: This is the “edited for television” version of this photo, cropping out Kathy and me as we hiked the Paradise Hills trail with Lena in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Stay tuned for the full, uncensored picture in an upcoming hiking blog post.
Thanksgiving Day was last week, but why stop giving thanks? We have a long list of blessings to be thankful for this year. Yet it’s all too easy to pick a #1: Lena!
Lena may be a TV star now, but her fame hasn’t been limited to TV appearances. We’ve been showing off our 14 ½ month old daughter everywhere:
Sitting on the beach with Mommy while watching Daddy goof off while surfing at Short Sands last month
And then seeing Haystack Rock for her first time
Discovering her love of soccer at the Portland Timbers game; We hosted Warner Pacific Alumni Night at the Portland Timbers game in Jen-Weld Stadium. The Timbers ended an 8 game losing streak to beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1!
Paying a visit to Daddy’s Delta Airlines workplace at PDX airport
Her first visit to the Washington County Fair... What a Daddy’s girl!
Heading out regularly with both sets of loving grandparents
And the list goes on and on. I have many more pictures and memories to share. We are truly blessed!
