For those of you keeping score at home, we've have had a couple of our friends and family stay for a visit. And we love it! This time was no exception. Chris, Marg, Jared and Spencer Meservy came to see us! We were able to meet Spencer for the first time. What a cutie! He is 9 days older than Clark. Can ya tell? And Jared looks the same (to me that is) only taller! He has caught up with Grace. They are 10 months apart.
They traveled by car and got to our place on Friday (5.23.08) in the late afternoon. We hung out til Andy got home from work, then we went out to eat at a local restaurant called McMenamins. The next morning, Marg and I went out for a run. I first must say that I am training for a half marathon. I was up to 10 miles and was planning on running 11. I was worried at first when I learned that the Meservy's were coming, that I wouldn't get my run in. Little did I know that Marg is training for a full marathon and she needed to run 15 miles! We ended up going 13 miles. We were suppose to go play ultimate frizbee that night, but I was spent! Anyway, that day we took the MAX into Portland and visited Powell's Bookstore (it's the largest in the world!). We then took a street car to the water front and watched the kids run around. That was all the energy I had!
On Monday, Memorial Day, we took the MAX again to the zoo! The weather was rainy and cool, but we were tough!
