In the moment I'm in Portland, Oregon. Whoa. Really.
|I love that picture that I (myself!) took Saturday when we were driving to Laura and Ryan's house.|
Briefly here is more of Laura and Ryan's world in Portland...
|Getting ready for a walk.|
|We got some good exercise!|
In short, though, we are really liking Portland!
And we are taking credit for bringing the beautiful sun-shiney weather!
We've had lots of good visiting time, which is a plus to their living far away from us. (We get to sit and talk at all meals - and while on walks, and late night right before we head to our beds to sleep.)
We're here for 3 nights and 2 full days. It may seem a short visit, since Portland is so far away from Texas... but we don't want to be like fish - and start smelling after 3 days!
In closing, here are two of our hosts, as they ride in the back of the car, ready to go to a fun and beautiful dog park...
|That's Akon and Olive, our dear granddogs.|
I have more later.
Well, lots more, but I don't want to bore you with my vacation 'slide show'.
In closing, here are three kind of random quotes about family...
"The family is a haven in a heartless world."
"Family: A social unit where the father is concerned with parking space,
the children with outer space, and the mother with closet space."
You don’t choose your family.
They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.
Stay tuned for more of Portlandia,
and an awesome church service in downtown Portland!
