Back to Work

Well, Mom and Dad are flying between PDX and DIA right now, and I'm back at Hostbaby for my normal "Monday" shift.

I had a blast showing them around Portland and feasting at several of our favorite restaurants (not to mention the almost daily trips to Alotta Gelato after introducing that gem of NW 23rd Ave). We made it down to Junction City for a lovely visit with Dorrance, Norma, Marv and Judy (relatives that I had not previously met). The Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, the Made in Oregon store, Finnegan's Toys, the Bike Gallery location where I scored my hot Orbea ride, and a Spirit of Portland Lewis and Clark Exploration Cruise were other highlights during their visit.

Waterfront Park

I picked Dad up to arrive just on time to see the express start of the Bridge Pedal. Can't wait to run the course next year and pause atop Fremont, legally. ;-)

Of course, the Bite wasn't running at 6:30am so we strolled around the event, watching all the riders register and cruise along their chosen routes, and along Waterfront Park.

The Folks Arrive

Mom and Dad flew into PDX this afternoon for a week-long visit! We enjoyed a lovely dinner under the huge tree on the deck at Tara Thai before I gave them a basic orientation to the metro area.

Tomorrow they'll probably wander up to the St. Honoré Boulangerie for a pastry while I work, but Sunday is the Bridge Pedal and the Bite of Oregon, so I hope we can go see some of the action....
