This past Friday Sally and I hopped on a plane and flew to Oregon to visit Megan. It was so much fun...starting with me being "man-handled" in security at Sacramento! I completely forgot that I had my pepper spray on key chain. I managed to get it off right as we were loading our carryons in the trays and I handed it over to the lady. Well she grabbed hold of my arm and called the head security guy. I told him I simply forgot it and they made sure I didn't set off the alarm and sent me on my way.
What a way to start the trip! Both Sally and I had a laugh over it and it makes for a wonderful memory of my first flight!

Saturday Market....

famous Made in Oregon sign


one of many bridges

across the river. While enjoying the scenery we were tempted to jump a random guy for his box of VooDoo Donuts. The line at the shop was very long and we weren't about to wait. But we could have taken them from the guy at the waterfront!

My first trip to IKEA!!

I love this picture!

I had a wonderful time and was finally able to sleep in without any kids waking me up (it's only been almost 6 years)!
I can't wait until we can do it again.....
