Portland Trip

A couple of weeks ago Jared and I took a quick trip to Portland, OR without the kids (thanks again to all of you who watched them for us).  We had a really great time seeing Portland for the first time and visiting some of our best friends.  While we were there we went out for Thai food in the Pearl District, skied at Mount Hood Meadows, had a fun party with games and food with some old friends and some friends that we met for the first time, did some quick hikes and saw lots of waterfalls, and had a Monte Cristo sandwich party at Jim and Mel's house.  We packed in as much as possible!
There are lots of big waterfalls!
Here is Jared with Jim and their little boy Bridger...we got to meet Jim and Mel (you might remember them from our Mexico trip) anyway...we got to meet there 2 little kiddos for the first time, Kacy was only about 8 weeks old.  Bridger loved Jared (he seems to have the effect on young children).
Here I am...EVERYTHING is so green in Oregon, mostly because there is moss growing up and down everything.
We had a perfect ski day...see all the snow in the trees, that was the amount of fresh powder we were skiing on and it was a lovely sunny day.
There is Mount Hood (our proof that it exists).  It was a very fun trip and we were so glad to see our friends!
