We had no idea there was a temple in Medford
until my brother Richard texted us about it.
So before leaving that town we found it.
Right across the street from a barn!
We could hear the roosters and chickens. It was the best.
Then directly across the street was this gorgeous sacred place.
And look what street it just so happens to be on!
Then we made it the 5 hours to Tigard.
Most all the way in the rain.
I won't even put an exclamation mark after that
because I'm learning rain is just the way of life around here.
And the odd thing is I have yet to see any one with an umbrella.
They all seem to take it in stride and just wear hoodies.
And look who we got to see!
Little Grant has grown and changed so much since Christmas,
He is definitely the center of their world.
McKenna does not like fish but she made salmon for us because she knows I love it.
Is that not the sweetest!
I've been blessed with such angel daughters in law.
The flavor was so good and the fish perfectly cooked.
I'm hoping to get her recipe.
She served it with yummy mashed potatoes, made with soy milk, again, because of me.
And fresh green beans.
And this very gorgeous display of berries.
I felt like this plate said, "Welcome to Oregon!"
Seriously the best we've tasted.
It was so fun sitting with them at their table.
I had longed for this moment
And we turned around and this is the view from their window!
McKay has invited us to see where he works, so we will be leaving to do that soon!
