Fall Fun

The weather in Portland has been glorious this month - we are having a real fall, complete with crunchy leaves and crisp, sunny weather. Here are some pics from the last few weeks...

We live close to a pod of awesome food trucks, including our favorite breakfast sandwich makers, The Big Egg. Timing is crucial, but if we do it right and roll in right when they open, it's a nice morning outing that lets the twins burn off some energy before their morning nap. If we time it wrong, we cancel our order and go back home to eat oatmeal.

We went for a walk around the block last weekend. It only took about 45 minutes, but we made it!

I had to explain the concept of "zone defense" to Eric. It's often easier than man-to-man coverage, especially when obstacles, distractions or stairs are involved.

 I love Gus swinging his hips!

 Blowing thier minds by throwing leaves in the air.


We watched the Jets beat New England last weekend! 

 Gus gets a dandelion tutorial at the park.

 Greta runs the bases.

 Fall running is the best - if I can get out early the fog makes it even more beautiful.

Speaking of running, Stephen, Laura, Katie, Barry and I ran a 10K in Astoria a few weeks ago. The race goes across the 4-mile long bridge connecting Washington and Oregon. It was spectacular.

Post race celebration.
