Whirlwind 3 Days
Family came to visit, O'ma, O'pa, and Grandma. We spent 3 days doing fun stuff. We rode the Portland Spirit down the Willamette River, eating a fancy vegan lunch aboard the ship. Halen and Grandma rode a pedi-cab through downtown. We rode Portland's sky tram. We saw 4 or 5 waterfalls. We rode a historical train, made to look like Thomas for the day, through Hood Valley. We went to Portland's rose garden, where roses were as big as my head, on bushes twice my height. We rode the magic mile ski lift at Mt. Hood's timberline lodge, where it was a sunny 80 degrees in the snow. There were people up there still snow boarding. Halen really didn't want to leave the mountain until he got to snowboard. I told him he could when he was three. Now he won't stop asking when he turns 3. It was a fun weekend. Time now to catch up on laundry!
