Pine State

We always love an excuse to get out of town and travel. The second Gentry and Scott told us they were engaged we started planning our trip to Portland for the wedding. She came all the way to Hawaii for ours, plus she's a bestie, so we always knew that we would go to hers. Since Tanya had never been to Seattle and I only went when I was about 12, we decided we would do both!

Our trip started on July 24th. Dan even joined us for our pioneer journey across the plains! Sharla (another bestie) had gotten married the night before, so he flew in for her reception at Millcreek Inn and then we all headed northwest!

We also stopped at Multomah Falls on the way in

First stop: food. Always food. Portland has amazing restaurants and in addition to all the wedding festivities, we also ate Thai, Salt and Straw Ice Cream (best waffle cones and ice cream we've ever had), Little Big Burger, and Voodoo Donuts.

We also hung out in the city, shopped, and went to the Portland Rose Garden.

Yes, this is a public restroom. In case you were wondering.

Tanya was a bridesmaid, so she went with the ladies for pedicures 

The wedding was perfect. We're so happy that Gentry was able to find such a standup guy! Hopefully many couple's trips lie in our future. The night before they had a dinner and games like corn hole. They were married in the Portland temple and had their reception on a golf course. 

Then we hit the road and headed to Seattle!
