12 years and counting

I guess taking pictures inside the casino is a "no-no" but I did get a couple of Jay playing the slots. I stopped after the guy at the machine next to Jay got all upset that I took a picture. I didn't know you couldn't take pictures and there wasn't any signs posted anywhere that say no photos. We lost $10.80. Not too bad.

Saturday we went to the Lincoln outlet mall and then drove to Tillamook (cheese factory). Then later around 7:30 p.m. we arrived in downtown Portland. Again they gave us 2 beds (full size). This room wasn't as cool as the one on the beach. We didn't use the computers because you had to pay for internet and we had to pay $18 to park our van in the hotel parking garage. I wasn't as happy with the Hilton hotel.

While checking in we were informed we wouldn't be able to leave until after 11 a.m. The streets were being blocked from Sunday morning at 6 to 11 a.m. because of the race for the cure. Below is a shot from our hotel room. There were lots of pink runners and walkers.

We had Starbucks for breakfast while we waited for the streets to open up.

We had a great weekend. Here is one thing that gave Jay something to tease me about....Friday night when we took the shuttle to the casino, after we sat down the shuttle guy said, "someone smells good and I'm sure its not you." The "not you" part was directed at Jay. I said in a sweet voice, "Thank you." The next day when I got in the van to start the day...Jay replayed the whole scene from the shuttle playing both parts doing voices and all. It was quite funny listening to Jay do a girl voice.

I love you, Jay!

We loved going to the Tillamook Cheese factory. Esp. the ice cream at the end. yummmy. (you can't get it around Flagstaff AZ I've found...)

and the no pictures in a casino thing was new to me. Maybe it's secret? like for the gambling addicts? weird.

Oh, Tillamook - reminds me of my childhood growing up in the Northwest. YUM! You can't get it here in TX either.

Happy anniversary - glad you got to get away. Looks like you had a great time and smelled good =)!
