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! 

The day started mighty early

I drove to the airport and got there with perfect timing to get through the line and onto my plane  

SeaTac Airport

Since my timing was beautiful, as usual, I didn't have to stand and wait too long to get on the plane. 

This is called an "Airport Gate" Ma can tell you how much fun it is to sit with me at one of these gates

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.  

Getting on the plane was similar to this, but not exactly

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! 

This is how packed it felt! Except we weren't heroes returning from fighting for our country. I was a hero on the plane though when I ripped the stinkiest silent but deadly fart 🙊   Luckily it was a short flight so people didn't have to smell the fart for too long

Each section of a trip is called a "leg." SEA-PDX was my first leg.

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?  

this is DMX. He had a popular song called "X is Gonna Give it to Them!" He was in a group of rappers called The Ruff Ryders.

I went to the store in the airport to get a drink and guess what the first thing I saw was?  

BOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! 

BOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! 

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.  

The second leg of my trip is Portland to Sacramento and the flight takes 99 minutes!

G-Ma is picking me and Jeff and Todd up at the Sacramento Airport when our flight lands  

This is the Sacramento Airport. I've never been there before. You see that tall building way down on the left? That's called the air traffic control tower

All air traffic control towers look pretty much the same  

All air traffic control towers look pretty much the same  

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. 

the people who work in there are called air traffic controllers. They have a super important & stressful job!

 LEG TWO: PDX - SAC 

Starting to taxi getting ready for takeoff. I found these two strangers and am bringing them with me.  

Uncle Tito ate something for breakfast that wasn't sitting right. We were the last people on the plane because he was pooping. They had to call our names on the overhead system.

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

Dada kind of has a chicken neck going on in this picture

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   

I lied. I can't figure out how to upload video yet. So it's me. In front of the plane

This guy sat in front of me on the plane to Sacramento- doesn't he look like Oakley?

This is Crater Lake in Oregon. It was formed by the collapse of a volcano! It is the deepest lake in America- almost 2,000 feet deep!!!

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 

is it a jack-rabbit maybe?

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. 

The In-N-Out Burger. I got the Double-Double and a chocolate shake.   We didn't go to this In-N-Out, but it was similar

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 

100 hamburger patties, 100 slices of cheese!!!
