    September 11, 2017

    The day we headed to Portland for our vacation was an absurd 105 degrees.  Our original goal had been to take Caleb to the zoo that afternoon but not only did we not want to be walking around outside in that weather, they also shut the zoo down early that day due to the heat!…
