I can't believe our two weeks in Oregon went by so fast. It took us about one week to adjust to the 15 hour time difference before we could go to bed and wake up at a decent time. This blog will be more about the amazing videos and photos than words but here is a quick rundown of what we have done.
• Enjoyed 4 days with my Mother in Law • Dinner with Laura and her boyfriend • 4th of July on the Portland Waterfront • Mani/Pedi with Staci • Toured around SE Portland neighborhoods & Reed College • Breakfast at Bob's Red Mill • Overnight trip to the Oregon Coast • Dinner at Noel & Debbie's house • Lots of yard word/projects around the house & organizing our belongings
