Packing and Playing

Whew!  We are all moved in to our new place and it feels wonderful. Amidst packing and moving we also had some fun with Mike's parents in town. 
Would you believe me if I told you this was the least cheesy picture of Mike and I moving? 

I have the most fantastic sister ever.  She gave up her Friday night, which would otherwise have undoubtedly been full of hot dates and fun parties, to come and help us pack up.  Then bright and early the next morning she came and helped us move.  Fabulous girl!  Not only is she strong enough to carry a couch, she is also funny enough to make us drop that very same couch laughing.  

After moving, a trip to Henry's Tavern on 12th and two orders of onion rings was in order.  

At a Da Vinci exhibit at the OMSI, our competitive spirits demanded to know who was the most attractive Mona  Lisa.  Who do you think wins?  
At Saltys on the Colombia River. 

Ever since I have known Mike, he has wanted to see the statue of Portlandia he heard about when he first moved here.  It is the second largest bronze statue, right behind the statue of liberty.  Being on the top of his "to do" list, we have been to this building several times to try and get in and see the statue, only to find it closed on each Saturday we have tried.  We finally got in on Monday but couldn't find the statue.  After asking around, we learned that it was outside.  Outside!  We have walked or driven past Portlandia many many times and never looked up to see it.

Looks like a great weekend! We miss you guys so much! I was horribly sad to leave you on Sunday after such a short time and not even really talking to Mike!
:( I want to see pictures of the inside of your place! Please share!
