|Ady and I attended the Redhead Event in Portland and at this point we think we made the Guinness Records Book|
So on Friday this past week both Ady and I traveled to Portland, OR to try and get into the Guinness Book or World Records. We were part of the Redhead Event 2013, which was trying to gather the most natural born red heads (currently known as gingers) in one roped off area all at the same time.
To be honest, the record attempt was really just an excuse to take Adyson away for a special weekend and create some good memories. I did not realize until I was in Portland just how special a weekend or even just a night really, away with just one child could have such a positive impact. We were really able to bond and have lots of fun. She thought it was awesome that I gave her a key to the room and she was the one that insisted on opening the door every time. Each time we left the room she made sure I knew she had the key in case we needed to come back and get in!

So the next morning we got breakfast in bed and this little foodie or ours got an crab omelet! Yup I love how she enjoys eating such crazy stuff.
After breakfast we checked out the Portland farmers market since we had heard such great things about it and I have to tell you that it did not disappoint. This was by far the best farmers market I had ever been to. Just walking the market you could smell fresh basil as if though it was infused in the air somehow.

What a blast and what memories we will cherish for so long. I am so glad I had the idea to do this and even more glad that my wife, Hailey held down the fort back home. I guess I will owe her a Mom weekend away with Max soon. I wonder what they could get in the Guinness Book for? Messiest child and most stylish mom? Well, I bet most of you reading this had no idea you were friends with a couple or world record holders.
