Having a great time... and I have one AMAZINGLY MIRACULOUS PICTURE!!!

I have been in Portland, Oregon, visiting my daughter and son-in-law.
I do NOT think I could have had a better time. And I have one more full day to go!

Here are some pics of our Saturday trip to Manzanita and then Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast....


We saw lots of dogs with their owners, more than I'd ever seen in one day!
Ours were the best, though.


Akon played with that ball a lot, with Ryan throwing it way far in the distance.
Then Akon had to rest, sweet boy.


Needless to say, the beaches were (are) beautiful, as were (are) the people (and dogs).


That evening when we came home I said to Laura, "We couldn't have had a better day today, Laura!"
"Well," she said. "We could have found a 100 dollar bill on the beach, you know."
"Oh, yeah, right. That would have made it better."
Ha!

Then the next morning we went to a wonderful Easter service at A Jesus Church.
Afterwards we had a super lunch with Laura and Ryan's friends at their house.

I didn't get too many pictures, but this first one is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING...
Do you see that?!?!?!
DO YOU?!?!?
Olive is sitting right there with that food on the coffee table right there...
and she is resisting temptation.

GOOD GIRL!!!
(I was (am) AMAZED.)


Here's a picture Ryan took later...
I was definitely the oldest one there, but everyone made me feel welcome... and young.

I particularly enjoyed visiting with Olga and Lena...
Olga, on the left, is originally from Russia, and since I'd been there twice, well, we had things to talk about.
And Lena, on the right, is from Brazil, and well, boy did we have stuff to talk about!
I hate to say it but by the time the lunch party was over, I was hoarse!!!

When the day was winding down and we were getting ready for bed, I said to Laura, "We couldn't have had a better day today, Laura!"
"Well," she said. "We could have found a 100 dollar bill while walking the dogs, you know."
"Oh, yeah, right. That would have made it better."
Ha!

Laura is so fun. And so is Ryan.
And my granddogs are so fun, too.
And I still have one more full day here!!
It will probably be super great like every other day I've had here, especially if we happen to find a 100 dollar bill laying around!!!
