Behind the lens: We were in Portland, Ore., for a basketball tournament the first weekend in July. The blues festival was going on in downtown Portland and we took the girls there to enjoy the music and waterfront. As you can see, several boats were in the marina as well as a guy promoting his jet pack. Just a beautiful setting and good time in Portland.
The girls in the photo from left: Breanna Monet, Emilee Gavia, Aliyah Owens, Olivia Francis.
