Fun day in Portland with the St Louis klan

Mike, Donna, Laurn and Erin came to visit on the tail end of their Alaska vacation.  We took the bus to the Saturday Market (Susan bought a necklace & we bought a small pottery plate).   it just happened that it was also the 25th anniversary of the Portland Japanese memorial park.  George Takie spoke about his memories living during the interment camps of ww2.  After that, we headed back home to view photos from the Alaska Trip.  of course a trip would not be complete without a trip to the waffle window, so we capped the evening with tasty treats!  overall, a fun relaxing day.

Weekend in Vegas

American Ninja Warrior!  yes, that is what prompted the quick weekend trip to Vegas, and it was definitely cool to see live!   We saw stage 2 of the world champions (US vs Japan vs EU) 

The weekend was also filled with good times with Fernado and Chip.   Fernando whipped up some Chili Verde that was worth the flight all by itself!  (Chip’s tortilini was also quite tasty)

Next trip, Oct 3rd weekend.  Question is, are we coming for chili verde, birthday party, wedding or all three?
