Mama and I spent several totally enjoyable hours on the Trader Vic, a really nice, big boat owned by the owners of that cute Chihuahua in the Santa suit. Yep, that's Mama holding Lexi and Flat Stanley, with me peering at you over her shoulder. Thank you, Fred and Lori, for inviting us aboard! What an outta sight way to spend my 60th birthday!

Here's Captain Fred, wishing all of you "Mele Kalikimaka" from the Columbia River portion of the Christmas Ships Parade here in Portland. The Christmas Ship Parade has a rich history.

Love the reflection of the lights in the water. Nice to meet you and mama's face. I got to scrolling down at your other posts and realized I have not visited your blog in several days. I have really been busy trying to get finished with Christmas and taking care of some personal things at the same time. I apologize and will try to take more time to visit more often. Your pictures below are beautiful too.

How lucky are you, momma, Lexi, and FS to be invited to stay on a boat. Wow, what colorful lights on boats especially the first one. I also like the ones with lights making a lighthouse and snowman. I've never seen Christmas lights on boats until I saw your photos.

You are NOT 60!!! That has to be a typo. You look way young. Happy Birthday anyway, I just had one too! :)
