On Thursday morning, we packed our supplies for dinned and drove east to meet Sarah's family.
Our first stop was the Portland Zoo, which offered free admission to those willing to brave the drizzle.
We met the new baby elephant and fed some hungry lorikeets.
Sister-in-law Greta made an excellent perch.
After the zoo, we went to Sarah's grandparents where we assembled our side dishes like the mixed greens salad, delicata squash spread,
and shredded brussel sprouts tossed with toasted hazelnuts.
We enjoyed a great evening with many family members and a few uninvited guests. At least four raccoons tried to steal some food cooling near the back door. We moved the food, took a few pictures, and the troop moved on.
