Just One More Day...

My mom and brother are leaving Thursday morning. :(

This week has been fun, but kind of sad too. Since I've had my brother and mom here for the past week, I kind of forgot that they don't actually live here.

We've had lots of fun and gone a lot of places, so hopefully I've done my part of convincing them to move here eventually. We have to wait for my dad to retire though.

Today we visited 2 museums, and had lunch at Red Robin. Layla loved dipping her fries in the sauces.

Yesterday we visited Mt. St. Helens. It was a little cloudy though, so we didn't bother driving the additional 30 miles to the closest viewpoint. It would have cost quite a bit to get in, so we just took pictures from the Forest Learning Center.

Tomorrow we are planning to take it pretty easy, but if its sunny we will go back up on Powell Butte to take pictures and maybe drive out closer to Mt. Hood.

Just like me at first, they can't get over the fact that there are real mountains here!

In other news, Blogger has somehow deleted all the blogs I watch from my dashboard. It did this once before, and they came back after I had re-added half of them. I think I'm just going to give it a day or so.

The same thing happened to my dashboard, but I keep all the blogs I follow updated on my acutal blog and they are all still there, so I figure the system is just a little on the fritz and they will be back soon, inshaAllah. :)

Oh no! The only time that's happened to me is on my blog lists (so they don't completely disappear) when I changed backgrounds. That stinks.

Sorry you're family is leaving too.

It stinks parting with family. Insha'Allah, they'll visit again, soon? Layla-adorable as usual. Hope you got your blogs back. Sometimes, I lose all my followers and then they come back.

@Umm Omar, The blogs are all back! My mom is already talking about coming back in the spring :) If only I could talk my dad into retiring early...
