Hanging out in Oregon

The main reason for the family trip to Oregon was for our daughter to attend the American Baptist biennial conference. The rest of us are just  along for the ride. 

I had three items on my must-do list–go to Powell’s Books, shop at Nordstrom’s, and make a trip out to McMinnville, the small town where Jennifer attended college. I loved McMinnville but we were always in a rush when we brought Jen to school in the fall or when we picked her up in the spring. I never got enough of the quaint downtown. 

Our son-in-law has an aunt and uncle living in McMinnville and they met us at Linfield College and took us to lunch. We sat and talked all afternoon. 

On the left is the aunt and uncle and Terry. On the right is Leeya, Jen, Judah, me, and Chad.
