We celebrated the 4th of July with a huge BBQ at the park!  We spent the day grilling; playing ladder ball, bocce ball, and kickball; laying around in the sun; playing fetch with the many dogs there; and just having an all-around good, relaxing day.

If you visit Portland you must try Pine State Bisquits!  The bisquits & gravy and the shrimp & grits were sooo good!

People used to tie their horses to horse rings in the sidewalk. Now they tie up little toy horses as part of The Horse Project.

My friends Viv & Lloyd have the cutest place in Portland!  Love how they’ve decorated!
