See - every now and again he has to head to Portland and go to school. Usually he drives down for a one day class, drives home the same day and then goes to work the next. However, this week he had two 2-day classes and was in Portland the entire week.
I decided that I'd take the train down on Friday and spend the weekend with him. Friday the train was delayed out of Seattle and I didn't have time to kick around on my own - but that's okay. JB met me at the train station, we went back to the hotel and got settled for a minute, found a movie we wanted to see, then went yarn shopping.
The girls at Twisted recommended The Farm for dinner and it was fabulous! After that we decided that we were too tired for the movie.
On Saturday, we got up bright and early and due to the woman making the plans - we ended up in Downtown Portland when we were suppose to be in West Lin to meet Mary and her hubby.
They were delightful. The 4 of us had breakfast and then we broke by gender. The men took themselves off to the Roadster and Gun show while Mary and I went fabric shopping. I had my camera with me all day - and didn't take a single picture. I know - bad blogger.
On Sunday we headed home. But before we tackled I-5 and the Seattle traffic we detoured to Multnomah Falls. The day was perfect for spending 90 minutes trekking up a mountain to get to the top of the falls. The first photo is of JB's back while he was at the first overlook with the entire Falls above him. the second photo - we were on the way back down and are just to the side of the bridge you can see halfway up in the first photo.
Good fun was had by all.
Happy Sewing! gMarie
