Cannon Beach, Ice Cream & Photo Booth.

So far Portland has been pretty good to us. We've been enjoying lots of running, juggling, music playing and sightseeing! On Saturday we headed to the coast and spent the day at Cannon Beach. It was pretty chilly down near the water, but the scenery was well worth the drive.

You can't go wrong with Ice Cream!!!

Dallas and I made a visit to Voodoo Doughnut on Sunday and lo and behold there was a photo booth...

Needless to say, the photo booth made my day :)

The Neglected Blog

Well...I have been pretty bad about keeping this thing up to date. I'm not surprised. It's hard to keep up with facebook, e-mail, my website and the blog. I am going to try to do a little better from now on, but I make no promises :)

Alright, I suppose I left off the back in December. After we got through Christmas we made a trip out to Hawaii to visit Schuyler and then to Japan to visit Mason & Emily. We had a great time. I posted a number of pictures on my facebook which if you haven't seen I suggest you take a look at them.

Also in the last post I announced that Dallas and I had decided to move to Portland. I can happily say that we have made it here. We left Fayetteville on Monday, July 12th and got to Portland on Thursday, July 15th. We made a stop in Boulder to visit Dallas' aunt Karen. We also squeezed in a wonderful dinner with Michelle and David while in Boulder. Boulder is a beautiful place, I always enjoy myself when I'm there.

Both Dallas and I were so relieved to finally get to Portland. We traveled through Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Oregon!! Thankfully both our cars made it and so did we.

Our first few days in Portland have been pretty nice. The weather has actually been a little chilly and everyone here seems to be pretty friendly. We have already been on a city long bike ride and ran through Forest Park on the west side of town. We also checked out the Saturday Market in Downtown. It was very exciting and we had some yummy African food.

This week Dallas and I begin the search for employment. Wish us luck!

Here are a few photos...
