Hoo-ray! My parents are coming to visit! Yay!
So, in good fashion, here are 101 reasons I'm excited for them to come to Portland. (When I wasn't sure they'd make it, the post was going to be "101 Reasons My Parents SHOULD Come to Portland, but now that they're coming for sure, I can change my list title!!!!!)
I'm excited for my parents to come to Portland because...
