We saw "Guardians of the Galaxy" It's a summer movie for kids based on a comic book. I loved it!
We had a tea party in the backyard. I used a bit of lace for a bug baffle. Shades of "Great Expectations."
Our outdoor room in the backyard is great for entertaining. However, in the morning, there are sometimes spots of sunshine that filter through, and on a hot day,
we have to find solutions.Maggie and Pat looking elegant under their sun shade.
The next day, Kyle and I got up bright and early and made our way to the Portland Bridge Peddle.
We did the walking portion - a mere 6.5 miles with a climb equal to twelve flights of stairs. It was awesome. And on the top of that climb, there were Taiko drummers, stirring the blood and cheering us on.
On the way back to the car, I stopped to snap a picture of the world's smallest park. (Keep Portland weird.) it's 24 inches in diameter, and the city actually does maintain it.
