saturday night slideshow

Last night, Paige was invited to show her skills on the floor of the Portland Rose Garden arena before the Blazers game. She had earned the most donations for the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser at her elementary school - she actually put in $20 of her own savings; we were pretty proud (and a little surprised - she loves to shop; weird, huh?).

So this is how it went down for her and a gabillion other kids from Oregon & Southwest Washington:

Jump, jump, jump around

A kind & loving big brother...

Post-jumping mayhem

(love the utterly confused look on the boy behind her)

The Trail Blazers have this weird alliance with Taco Bell - if the team scores 100 points, everyone in the arena gets a coupon for a free Chalupa. Imagine, then, 20,000 sports fans chanting "CHALUPA, CHALUPA" when the score is at 99. And when it stays 99 for three minutes of play? Even Jarrett Jack was getting aggravated.

But then, HURRAH!

Who doesn't love a free Chalupa?

Oh, and the Trail Blazers won. Yay!
