the past two weeks: before and after

right after we moved in, my best friend from bountiful came to visit for a few days.. (i finished unpacking the boxes at about 4:00 and Jenn + steve came at about 5:00)......before i knew it we were out of our new house and exploring the northwest!!! Here's some pics in a cheesy before and after style:


Kitchens before the turn of the century (this is an oven @ the pittock mansion)

cleaning my kitchen after we moved in all our crap (there was cat hair up there - how???)




Before dinner at the amazing place where twilight was filmed
(jenn is holding a twilight menu) the amazing sunset after (we ate in those little verandas)

Before
hiking mt. st. helens (aren't we tough?) After (glissading down the mountain - i was scared):


Jenn at the japanese garden, before visiting the rose garden, the pittock mansion and seeing the rest of downtown

Jenn after our long day of sightseeing (i blame it one the time change)


before: walking to the secret beach
after: finding and accidentally killing a mini crabby on the private beach


THANKS FOR COMING JENN AND STEVE!
we had a great time
