Bye Bye Summer

We've been so lucky to have had a really fantastic summer here in Portland. While we're sad to see it end, we definitely said "Good-bye" to summer '08 with a bang - Maia and Jason got married. We had a crazy busy weekend - wedding, cocktail party, brunch and lots of hang out time with Beth, Jeff and Jordan who came in for a quick visit. No one was more exited about the wedding than Kathe! Look how pretty she looked in her new pink dress, braids and sparkly flip flops.

Check out Kathe's moves on the dance floor. Here she is mixin' it up with her Pops! (note the change in footwear)

Here Jason, Jeff and Jordan enjoying their Eggs Benedict.

We had so much fun with Beth, Jeff and Jordan - WE REALLY MISS THEM!!!! Here are some more fun shots with them!

In other news...

Our cute little Ike got a nice new haircut, we even had to get him some product to rub into it. On the flip side he has been exasperating his Mommy and Daddy by waking them up in the middle of the night demanding milk. Through most of the summer we've obliged him b/c it was only once a night, well this weekend he kicked it into high gear - 4 times. Moms even had to take a nap on Sunday afternoon. So, we bit the bullet and started the Ferberization process once again. So, last night he cried and cried and called for us for 3 hours (12 to 3 to be exact). Once he drifted off, Kathe was up peddling snake oil. Once we got her back to bed, Ike was up at 6am. Aryne finally relented and gave him some milk so that she could get more than 30 minutes of uninterrupted sleep. At 7:30 Ike was up and raring to go, like he'd slept 12 hours straight. A morning spa appointment and an afternoon of napping was in order for Moms and Pops, but alas we had to work so no rest for the weary. So, please just don't get us started on the Republican convention....
