Our adventures began from day one Saturday, Oct 11. While waiting to board our first of 3 flights to Freeport, we were informed that the battery on the plane had been left on all night and was drained. It was undetermined how long before a backup battery would get there. While waiting in line just in case the flight got cancelled, the time changed from a 6:30am departure to an 11:15am departure. With only a 2 hour connection time in Dallas, we would miss our flight to Miami. We were re-secheduled on a flight through Chicago instead. While waiting to board that plane, there was a 20 minute delay because the cabin was too cold! Crazy oregonians!
Wednesday night we had signed up for an all you can eat wine and cheese sunset cruise. How romantic! We got dressed up and headed to the dock. There we realize that our cruise was going to be on the ferryboat that shuttled people around the harbor. Ha! Then we see the plate of cheese and veggies sitting on the boat. Two plates of food for 35 people...and, it was out in the sun! Ha! After making a run over to Port Lucaya, the ferry came back to pick up the sunset cruisers. We are slightly amused at this point but are feeling a bit ripped off. $50 a person is a lot of money! We get out and start sailing around the harbor. We have some cheese, crackers, veggies, meatballs, wings, and a bahama mama. About 25 minutes into the cruising, the boat breaks down out in the harbor. Of Course! We start drifting into the sides of the harbor, bounce off, and start floating back out into the middle where they drop anchor. Shortly after a boat shows up to drag us back to dock. We managed to have fun though!
After the successful sunset cruise, we headed off to the local fish fry that they have every week. The food was really tasty! We had a whole fried fish, some rice, and some potato salad. Finally, something worth the money!

I made this cake for Em's birthday. I was just playing around with some of the techniques I'd learned
My first tiered cake
My first cake sale!!!
It's been a lot of fun learning how to decorate cakes. If you're ever in need of a cake, I'm always looking for an excuse to make one:)

Saturday night we went to a Jazz club in downtown Portland and enjoyed a Greek dinner and some live entertainment.
He so handsome:)
Sunday I (Jenn) spend the day with a head cold that is now just starting to go away. I hate being sick in the summer!
We had a good weekend together where we enjoyed some of the entertainment in Portland as well as got a chance to spend some time together, talking and getting to know each other better.

We built a retaining wall between the houses to help level the area
Jenn after a long day...sitting on the wall she built!
Working on the electrical work, nice smile;)
It's looking pretty good so farWe have some color in the backyard now. The grass is coming in nicely, the flowers added some life, and the little Japanese maple fits perfectly!
