Fun in Portland

Since it hadn’t been snowing in Park City, the family decides to visit Portland Oregon, in hopes of getting rained on, and seeing friends and family.

April 29 was a big day for Tory as he got baptized into the Christian faith. It was a really nice weekend spent at Grandpa and Grandma Moe’s, with Grandma Ogie, Tonya and Kelly coming from Wisconsin, and my folks coming down from Battle Lake. Sarah and Jeff were kind enough to agree to be […]
