ramona and i are off to portland and roseburg, oregon this weekend! we’re going to visit my father’s side of the family who hasn’t had a chance to meet minka yet. no grand plans except for quality driver family time, mostly in roseburg. i’m hoping to stop by coava coffee, voodoo doughnuts, and the pendleton woolen mills store during my short time in portland. we might even drive through ramona’sneighborhoods!

what would you recommend i do while in portland? (i’ll be there monday so there’s time to take suggestions.)


oh, and some videos for you.

i haven’t said much about it yet but here’s the awesome news that the powerdriver family is now working on!


and the winner of the huckleberry coffee giveaway is…MLD (which is my mama!) who said that she really admires wordsmiths. random.org picked #4 out of my drawing of 8 entries. thanks for commenting and i’ll have another giveaway next month (my birthday month!).


no links this week. just a large smattering of photos of cute babies (and one handsome man) that i took with my iphone.


as always, click on photo if interested in more information.
