Currently at Portland Airport as I start this photo diary of my trip to G-Pa's retirement ceremony. He has worked for the same company for almost 50 years!
Did you guys get my note? I tried to print this logo but I fell asleep trying to do it. 😴
Hopefully we get to see this superstar and his glorious entrance!
I drove to the airport and got there with perfect timing to get through the line and onto my plane
Since my timing was beautiful, as usual, I didn't have to stand and wait too long to get on the plane.
Because I was only going from Seattle to Portland I got on the plane from the tarmac. A tarmac is what the road that planes move around on is called.
The plane was packed- I think every seat was taken. It felt like we were packed in line sardines! And it was a small plane!
Before I knew it I had landed in Portland Oregon
Here's a map of Snoqualmie to Portland. The blue line is the path my plane took
When we got to Portland we got off the plane on the tarmac- no skybridge again. Did you know that people who live in Portland call it PDX for short? Did you know ma used to like a rapper named DMX?
Now ma likes this rap group
When I landed in Portland I took some pictures of the plane ✈️ and the tarmac
I went to the store in the airport to get a drink and guess what the first thing I saw was?
Now I am waiting for my flight from Portland to Sacramento. It leaves at 1135. Uncle Jeff and Uncle Todd are flying into Portland to meet me. They should be here at 10:30 or so. Then we are all taking the same flight to Sacramento.
G-Ma is picking me and Jeff and Todd up at the Sacramento Airport when our flight lands
The people who work in the towers make sure that planes don't run into each other. They are kind of like the stop lights on the sky except they don't have red, yellow and green. They use headsets to talk to the pilots of the planes.
ok- I have to get to work now while I wait for your uncles and my flight. I will have another update when my flight gets ready to leave.
love you guys! Be good for ma. And give her a big hug for me because I love her too!
LEG TWO: PDX - SAC
Starting to taxi getting ready for takeoff. I found these two strangers and am bringing them with me.
Los Angles is one of the biggest cities in the world, but it's not the capital of California. Kind of like Seattle not being the capital of Washington. The much small cities of Sacramento and Olympia are California and Washington state's capitals
Since Todd was poopin we had to hustle to the plane and once again it was a tarmac entry to get on the plane. Here's a video of us walking, quickly, to the plane
now this was cool....it would be nice if the airplane window was clean
We couldn't figure out what this thing is - but it's huge and the first thing you see when you come down escalator in the Sacramento airport
When G-Ma picked us up from the airport and were bringing us to the Napa hotel Uncle Jeff saw a sign for this famous Drive In Restaurant. It's the first time that we have had it.
Woody from Toy Story loves In-N-Out Burgers and he's an expert on how to order
I don't think he orders the 100x100 like someone did. Check out this burger
More to come!
I am going to try to upload some videos here, hopefully it works. This is the video of us getting on the plane in Portland.
