This is a post from our family blog that my wife helps to maintain... www.beisfam.com
We hope to be able to maintain both of our blogs more frequently now that we are in our new location!
Hi everyone,......we are not literally under water, just in case anyone was worried, but we certainly are in a NEW, .....and fairly wet setting. We just moved to Portland Oregon in the middle of the rainy season. We arrived just before Christmas with Pearce driving our family dog in the SUV cross country and Heather and the kids flying out to meet him.
Today was one of our first wet Saturday adventures. So far the weather has been splendid allowing for outings to some city parks, Multnomah water falls and much more.
We have so much to update in our blog as it has been neglected far too long. We are hoping to turn over a new leaf in that department.
In honor of the wet weather today, we decided to get REALLY wet and made a trip to the OMSI museum (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) with a specific visit to their submarine exhibit! This was not just an indoor visit but the retired USS Blueback submarine floating outside the museum in the Willamette River. Micah and Jonah( and parents too) had a great time climbing through the bulkheads, seeing the living quarters, control panels, looking through the periscope, and seeing the real torpedos! We were so inthralled we forgot to take pictures inside.
