Friday night we went to temple square with my family to see the lights. By about 9:30 Jacob was exhausted so my dad was carrying him on his shoulders. He ended up falling asleep on my dad's head. None of us had our cameras with us, but another family (whom we didn't know at all) had camera and they thought that Jacob was so cute and wanted to take his picture. They got my e-mail and sent it to me, so here it is for your viewing enjoyment.

This morning I was curing my hair, and he wanted me to come with him. As soon as I finished he took me by the hand and led my into mine and Ivan’s room and pointed at the bed I asked him in Spanish if he wanted to cuddle with me and he got a big smile on his face and nodded his head. (I am amazed at how he understands both languages so well.0 So we cuddled up on the bed for a little while. This happened after we ate breakfast too. He is such a sweet heart.

So for the July 24th weekend we went up to Portland Oregon. We flew up on Thursday night and came back Sunday. My aunt Sarah met us at the airport and brought us an extra car seat for Jacob so that we didn't have to pay to bring one on the plane. She also brought us a stroller both of which were very helpful. We stayed in Beaverton the first two nights of our trip. We went to Multonomah Falls on Friday. We actually hiked up to the top (carrying Jacob most of the way). It was absolutely gorgeous! Ihave been to this waterfall many times but I had never hiked to the top - it was worth it. Friday evening we went to Sarah and John's house for dinner. Jacob enjoyed playing with their three little boys. After we left there home we went and walked around the Portland temple grounds - I love the Portland temple. Saturday we went to the Tillamock cheese factory the ice cream there is divine. Then we went out to Cannon Beach and met my cousin Kristin with her family. Saturday night we stayed in a hotel in Seaside Beach with an ocean view room - it was so beautiful. We walked along the beach, played in the sand, went running on the beach (my favorite place to run), and visited the little shops. The next day we visited 2 or 3 beaches before we headed back to the airport. Sarah was such a help, I don't know what we would have done without her : ). I'll have to add the pics tomorrow because it is 12:30, I'm tired and the add pic button isn't working : ) good night.

p.s. Jacob loves snap pops, he especially loves stopping on them and hearing them pop.

We went to Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks. We were able to see buffalo, elk, fish, and even a bear. We did some hiking, and Ivan carried Jacob in his new hiking backpack. We went with my mom and dad. We were also able to stop and see Grandma and Grandpa Carlson in Idaho Falls on the way up. It was a fun trip.
