Nike called and asked Tom to present one of the awards at the Oregon Sports Awards. So... this past weekend we took a "short" trip to Portland. After Tom's workout on Saturday we drove to Kansas City to fly out to Portland. We arrived with no problems, just cramped legs and a tired little girl. Sunday we walked around downtown for a little while after breakfast and went back to the hotel for a nap. Luckily we were all ready to catch a few zzz. We had to be at the rehearsal at 4:00 and the show didn't start until 7:00. Yes, it was a long time, but Kinley had fun running around the green room and talking with so many different people. Tom and high school twin runners presented the Steve Prefontaine award to the most outstanding high school senior. They all did really well. The highlight of the night had to be Sammy Carlson (X-game silver medalist skier) presenting. He was so funny and carefree. After he announced the winner, he hooted and clapped - priceless. So after a long day, we were taken back to our hotel, packed and got to bed early for our 7:45am flight.
Notice Tom's new suit. He looked sharp. I also think we might have a problem on our hands. Here you will notice Kinley talking on a cell phone. She's only 11 months old and already she thinks she should have her own phone. I know she can't talk, doesn't know any numbers and has no one to call, but I mostly worried this will lead to more diva-like behavior.
