Mark's mom and his sister Linda came to visit us for a few days. Here is Isaac with his Grandma Nancy, both outfitted nicely for Halloween. We handed out candy on a rainy night, and then we subjected the relatives to The Birds, which neither of them had seen before.

Today was Christian's eighteenth birthday, celebrated with this photo frame, below, from Grandma Nancy, crêpes from Portland's new food truck, lattes from Tandem, and a little pick up basketball. It was fun to watch the seamless teamwork between Isaac, Mark, and Mark's sister.

This guy. Oh, hey, I got three cute little chairs from a thrift shop for seventeen dollars! This one's weirdly painted yellow (even the cane is painted), but I kind of like it.

On our way to the airport, we stopped at Two Fat Cats to get Mark's mom a whoopie pie (all the times she's visited, we've never managed this). The pumpkin whoopie pies there? So. Good.
