Coast to Coast

For the first time in my life, I crossed the States coast to coast today.

We left from Portland Airport this morning.

But not the usual Portland airport. This is Portland, MAINE!

Made a short stop here after the first flight. I think I see all our kids over there in downtown Chicago!

 Dave and I had lunch together, and then he left for his flight to Denver.

While I took off for the other Portland...Oregon, that is! But that wasn't my final stop on this 15 hour travel day.

 I got to fly in to my childhood home, Eugene, Oregon, where my mom and dad were waiting for me!

It's so great to be here after a year and a half of not seeing them.

Love them so much! Love being back here!


  1. I'm soooo happy that you're there safe and sound and can be at home with your parents. Enjoy the rain! Ordered it just special for you. Tee-hee!

  2. So fun to see both you and Claire tomorrow! Remind Mom and Dad to come to the airport to get me at 10 PM on Saturday.

  3. Dear Mom,
    It's me, Kaylee. I've been following your blog and I saw you and Claire are together and I just had to write. (Aunt Kristi holds me up so I can see the pictures). Yesterday Uncle Josh gave me some skin from the salmon he was eating. He is my favorite uncle. Kiss Claire for me.
