I have a lot of family in Oregon, which happens to be one of the many reasons I dig the state so very much.
We arrived at my aunt's house in Portland to a house full of people I love.
It was a very, very good evening.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have such an incredible extended family.
My grandparents and aunts and uncles have always been like second parents to me, and I don't know where I would be without them.
And watching them love on my babies?
Well it nearly did me in.
Family is everything.
I just wish my parents and siblings could have been there too.
