Wendy and I went to Portland last weekend to visit Mary & Zach. We got there Thursday night (Feb. 23 - happy bday, Ky!) and were there until Sunday afternoon. It was so good to see Mary & Zach but the weather in Portland was not very welcoming! It was soooo cold and rainy! It hailed on Sunday morning and I think it snowed a little bit on Saturday. (Reminds me of the time Em, Ky, & I visited Annie in Seattle for Spring Break and she said it never snows there...of course it snowed.)

Despite the weather, we had a great time. We went to the Portland temple, which was beautiful! We also roamed around Powell's City of Books for awhile. It's a massive bookstore that takes up a whole city block in downtown Portland. Color-coded rooms, several stories, tons and tons of books! It was cool. Mary is making a rag quilt for the baby so we went to JoAnn's to get fabric and then Wendy helped her get started on the quilt. Took a drive to Vancouver, WA, which was not an impressive place but cool that we went to Washington. We played games for hours; my favorite was a board game called Ticket To Ride. (I ordered it as soon as I got back home!)

I love travelling and visiting friends. Thanks for your hospitality, Mary & Zach!

I couldn't decide so I'm using them both!

Crazy entrance to some store we walked past

Before we left for the airport, we froze our butts off on the balcony for this shot
