Google Hangouts

Jordan's family joined us via google hangout to celebrate Porter's birthday this week. And when I pulled up this picture, it just made me stop to notice what an amazing thing this is - that Grammie and Grandpa from Livermore, April from Concord (-ish), Drew and Carter from Redmond, and Nathan from Provo could all hop on their computers for 15 minutes and watch our 2-year-old Porter opening presents in our living room. Pretty cool.  (And thanks guys for joining us!)

And a fun memory: I don't remember the details, but sometime when Skype was pretty new, Jordan rigged up something so that we could play pictionary with his parents or siblings. I can't remember exactly who, but I think we had three of us playing from different states.  And whether Grandpa Johnston was watching us or just heard about it, I remember he said something like "I can't even wrap my brain around how this could be possible!" But there's Porter 2-years-old who thinks it's just how things are done! :)
