Ohio and Oregon (September)

In September, after some hikes and pika project hikes, we traveled to some special family events.

First was a party celebrating my parent's 65th wedding anniversary in Ohio, and then Mike's nephew's wedding in Portland. It was great to celebrate with people we don't get to see very often and meet the newest members of the Ebert and Molloy clans.

We also took in a few local attractions during the trip.

We flew first to Lebanon, Tennessee to see my parents and aunt, and drove them to Dayton, Ohio to see almost all of the Ebert clan to celebrate the milestone anniversary.

In Dayton, the Carillon Historical Park was a short walk from our hotel. Too bad we had to leave before the Sunday afternoon concert!

After driving back to Tennessee, we flew to Portland and got to spend time with the Molloy clan, helping to prepare for and attend the wedding.

In Portland we visited Washington Park and were pleasantly surprised to find the International Rose Test Garden still in bloom. The Portland Japanese Garden was beautifully peaceful and more subdued than when we saw it in spring bloom (2013).

We also went to the Vaux's Swift Watch in Portland, which we wrote about in a separate story.
