This past Saturday my parents flew up from Texas for their second visit to Portland. They came last June and experienced the Northwest summer. This time was a little more relaxing since they had already seen the main Portland sight. We still did a lot, though. We ate at some great restaurants (50 Plates, Isabel's, Oba, Elephant's Deli, Papa Haydn's, Mother's Bistro, Hopworks), they visited my church, we roamed around the Portland Saturday Market, spent some time with the Moores, hiked, shopped, toured the Medical Teams International exhibit and offices, snowshoed at Timberline Lodge. We had a great time! And showing them around Portland reminded me just how much I love this place!
