Jonas and I just got back from our very first night away from Kjersten. July 9 was our fourth anniversary and we went to Portland for a romantic little getaway. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling 100%, but we still had a nice relaxing time. I think I got a bit of Kjersten's sick bug. We went to IKEA for some dishes and the Woodburn Outlet Malls for some much-needed sandals. We stayed at the Mt Scott Manor, a bed & breakfast in Happy Valley in a person's 7,000 square foot home. It was very nice; the backyard looked into a wooded area, and we saw a raccoon and a mama deer with her fawn. They also have about eight roosters, a peacock, and new chicks. I didn't get to see the chicks though. For dinner, we drove into Portland to the Pearl District, where there are a lot of galleries and such. We went to a delicious French restaurant called Le Bouchon. I highly recommend it. I had a quail dish that was so good, but very rich. I couldn't even eat half of it, mostly because of my upset stomach. All in all, it was a great escape for Jonas and I, to just relax, not worry about Kjersten, just be friends together. Well, we kissed too.
