Well, if you remember, last September our son Kris and his new wife Hannah were in Cabo, Mexico when the hurricane hit. It took them four (not so lovely) days to get out of Mexico.
Les recently decided he wanted to try a little trip with our kids. Since he travels primarily in a wheelchair, we decided to travel by train. Most of us have not traveled by train and most of us have not spent any time in Portland - we booked a weekend train trip to Portland. An adventure!

After three hours on the phone between Amtrak and Alaska Airlines, we booked to fly out of Portland that evening at 10:00. Les decided he wanted the kids to fly with us so we all stuck together for the day. Little man did great - he kept going all day. We had a pretty nice afternoon downtown - VooDoo Donuts and all! I was SO GLAD our boys were along with us to help - this wheelchair stuff is all a new adventure for all of us. We also had to take a cab (well, two cabs for all of us) from our hotel to the airport - another new adventure in the wheelchair!

When we were waiting to board the plane, we noticed lightning in the sky. We all looked at each other and were just waiting to hear the announcement that our plane was canceled.......but it didn't happen and we all arrived home safe and sound.

Just wanted to warn you if you ever thought about traveling with someone from our family......
