Sarah, Marty, and Jackson travelled to Oregon over Presidents' Weekend to introduce Jackson to Marty's father's side of the family. He spent the weekend getting to know (from left-to-right and back-to-front in the photo below) his Uncle Scott, his Aunt-to-be Lauren, his Second Cousin Chris, his Second Cousin-in-law Casey, Dad, Mom, his Great Uncle Jim, his Great Aunt Betsie, his Second Cousin Pat, his Uncle Ben, his Great Grandmother Bumpy, JiJi (Julie), and BoBo (Marty's dad).
Ben was very sweet to Jackson and even had a sign waiting for him at the airport that said "I'm your Uncle Ben".
Marty's dad and his grandmother Bumpy also really enjoyed getting to know Jackson.
The family was also surprised by the announcement that Marty's dad had bought a sailboat, a 36-foot Island Packet named Sea Otter. They already have plans to sail down to Mexico in 2007-2008.
