End of Summer...

Summer in Portland means we turned on our air conditioner for one day.  Yes - you read that correctly. One day.  I'm sure we would have turned it on more had we been in town for those three days when it was actually hot...but maybe not.

It was the summer of national park adventures to the East of us.  We hit three of them this summer.  We were still out "west" - but just not west of Portland.  From a week in Colorado to two weeks in Jackson Hole with a little bit of the Sawtooth Mountains and Yellowstone National Park thrown in for good measure, we had our share of western adventures.

Speaking of Yellowstone National aren't a good parent until you take your kids there.  Seriously, it's worth it.  Also hit Rocky Mountain National Park and of course Grand Teton NP.  The Sawtooth mountains should have there own national park.

All in all it was a great August and now we've got a 1st grader in our house.

Wish him (and us) luck.
