We got the very exciting news yesterday that McKay, McKenna and baby Grant
are moving to Portland, Oregon!
McKay was offered a job there with a health insurance company as an actuary.
The company is letting him finish up this semester of grad school,
and then they will begin their new life and job on April 30th.
I am very excited for them on many levels.
But also for a selfish reason on my part. McKay is 28 now,
and ever since he left home at age 19 to serve his mission,
and then has been at BYU ever since,
I have never ever seen any of the places he has lived....in all those 9 years.
But now, since Portland has a low elevation, I get to GO!
I get to see him and his sweet McKenna in their life...not just in my life.
Does that make sense?
I promised them I will NOT be a pest, but I will get to visit.
So my question to you, is...Do you know anything about Portland?
Have you lived there?
Do you have an opinion on where in the area is best to live?
I think my Dad drove us through there when I was 7 on the way to Washington,
but I don't remember anything about it.
I did learn one thing about Portland last night.
The McKs might want to consider keeping Grant inside on the 2nd Saturday of every month.
That is the day it is legal to ride your bike in the nude.
Not sure if it's true, but that's what we've been told.
Oh, and also it's illegal to pump your own gas in Portland. That I could really love.
And no sales tax. I can't imagine.
