My mom, dad and grandma arrived Saturday morning in Portland. We got to see a little of the Rose Parade, had some lunch at a restaurant I can't remember the name of right now, but it was good and visited the Japanese Garden which is stunning. It was raining but I had read that we should still go visit with the rain and we did, I took all of our umbrellas just in case. The garden didn't have too many visitors. We were able to take a walking tour as soon as we got there. It was so peaceful and beautiful.
