We flew into Portland Wednesday evening, and stayed up way too late chatting, and then Thursday we helped Katie throw a birthday party for Truman her son who was turning three. Truman loves animals so Katie found a fun animal lady to bring her miniature horse, wallaby, dragon lizard of some sort, and a fluffy bunny for the kids to play with at her mother-in-laws garden of Eden of a yard. The thing about the Northwest in the Spring is that everything is in bloom. Every time I go I wish I could take it all home with me. Katie has found her family a great spot, and I'm afraid we'll never get her to leave it, so we just go and enjoy it every now and then with her.
This is the cake we came up with for the animal themed party, Katie is a pro at low key, and these were some animals she already had and some cookies that she had too, so we stuck them on to say his name, it turned out really cute.
The birthday boy, the kangaroo, and the Sterling baby that I wanted to abduct. But I didn't.

Animals, suckers, and cake, does the life of a three-year-old get any better?
Up tomorrow: shopping, Indian Food and Gelato, does the life of a 31-year-old get any better? I think not.
