Our Visit with Olivia, Kathy and Robyn

It was nearly one year to the day since we last saw Olivia, Kathy and Robyn in California. They moved to Atlanta and we headed to Portland. We were so excited when they called last fall and said they were planning a trip to Portland in the summer. They came to visit last week for 7 days and we had a great time. The girls were with each other nearly 24 hours a day and go along beautifully. We all had such a great time.

Here are some of the highlights. Not neccesarily in order.

Fourth Of July
Fouth of July dinner. Marinated Flank steak, shrimp skewers, corn and the cob and salad. Kathy made the berry tart on the cover of Cooking Light this month.

Our dinner out at Podnah's BBQ pit was bust. We got there at 7:30 and they were out of ribs. I asked them if they had just one rib left, I didn't want to have to come back to try the ribs. They ended up finding 4. By the time we left the "Out of" menu looked like this...... I've read so much about this restaurant, but I will not make an effort to return.
