Over the weekend (Friday, actually, because I have EVERY FRIDAY off work whoohoo) Leif and I met up with some dear friends to go hiking to Wahclella Falls.
Our friends Marc and Natalie, along with their son Sam, recently returned to Portland after living in Amsterdam for the last two years. Even though they have only been back for a week having them here makes Portland feel a little bit more like home already.
After the hike we took the kids to see Herman The Sturgeon at the Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Sam is only about six months older than Clio but towers over her and probably weighs a good ten or fifteen pounds more than she does. He is the most snuggly cuddly little dude. When Clio shuns my affectionate kisses for something more appealing like a slimy wet leaf, Sam lets me scoop him up and give him hugs and zerberts.
I think Clio is in love. With Sam. Not Herman. Sorry Herman.
