Saturday I had hoped to see a lot of people but it didnt end up working out like how I had planned in my head. Still, it was a super fun day. Jeremy was able to come along with me everywhere I went so we started at Jamba Juice, then headed to Costco for free samples. Then drove to the Yates to visit them and see their new house!
I met this family in Clackamas and Bro Yates eventually became the ward mission leader. They'd sometimes sign up to feed us dinner, always so good! I knew them before their cute girls were even born!
|Of COURSE I had to eat at Big Town Hero - my favorite sandwich shop in Oregon. Jeremy made his sandwich into a face while I just enjoyed my turkey-cucumber sandwich. Mmmmm|
Gave Jeremy a tour of my first area where I served - Grehsam - and here I am at the apt. complex where I served with Stringham (Townsend), Rasmussen and Offret and Weston. I was here for the big snow and ice storm in 2003 when I first heard of freezing rain. Ahh fun times.
Got to show Jeremy the building that was built in Gresham on Stark St. for the Hartley Park ward (and a few other wards) I did an open house here with the other missionaries serving in the area and we even had a few protesters out front. Sadly the Hartley Park ward original no longer exists and they dont meet in this building anymore but it still holds great memories for me!
|Driving to Beaverton area for dinner with Sera Jordan and her friend at Olive Garden. Sadly I got no pictures of that but I did get this one in the Sellwood area. A favorite road of mine in the Milwaukie area. Its just so pretty and cool looking!|
|Sky cab...we were going to ride in it but ran out of time. Its to take people to work back and forth across the river.|
Ended the evening by driving to the edge of downtown Portland and testing out the night shot on my camera. Turned out pretty cool! Wish I had gotten more pix but it was almost 1am and the lights were all turning off at that point.
