Chris grew up in Portland. He has always wanted to take me to Portland to see where he grew up. His friend got married and had a reception, so he decided that it was a perfect opportunity to go see friends. We left on a Wednesday and came back on Sunday. It was a very fun trip. There was a lot of driving, which drove Davis and I a little nutty at times, but we did well overall.
We stopped on our way in Ontario, Oregon. My mom grew up in Ontario, so it was fun to see the sights. Her house was up for sale, so we knocked on the door and asked if we could take a look. It was very fun to see the place where I have so many memories from childhood.
The next day, we drove the rest of the way to Portland. We stopped to stretch in Arlington, Oregon. There was a cute little park just off the side of the road. Davis decided that the cool thing to do was to roll down the hill(he learned that from Grandpa the week before), then run to the stairs and walk up and then roll down the hill again. And then he found the water. It was SO MEAN of us to not let him soak himself in it!
Tillamook Cheese Factory and ate some delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, then went to the coast. Here we are at the coast.
Then we went to the wedding reception and saw all of Chris's friends. Davis made a friend too.
