On Friday Caleb and I made a quick trip to Portland to do a little shopping and see some old friends.  We decided not to take Gallie because we were only going to be gone about 36 hours and 12 would be spent in the car.  She decided that she would rather spend the night with Grammy and then spend the next day with Cody and the new kitten, Rainbow (formerly known as Princess Tiger Lily).

We left pretty early Friday morning, so we were able to spend most of the afternoon walking around downtown and exploring.

Caught trying to check his work email on a day off!

 Shhhh... Forever 21 stop :)

That evening we met up with one of my really good friends from high school, Brandon.  We realized we haven't seen each other for almost 5 years - time flies.  We had dinner at a really cool Thai restaurant, Pok Pok - it was good.  Spicy, but good.

Our friend Patrick also joined us - he's in Portland for the summer rehearsing for a play.

The main reason we went to Portland was so I could attend Crystal's (my best friend from high school) babyshower.  We haven't seen each other for about two years, but again, it never seems like it.  Crystal is due in October and I can't wait to find out if it's a girl or boy!

The shower was really fun - it was put on by Crystal's sister and she did an amazing job.  She hand made all of the food, deserts, decorations, and favors - I have a couple pictures below, but you can see more on her blog.

It was a pretty eventful trip - we had fun but we're sure glad to be home with our cute, little Gallie :)
