Portland Trip: Grant Park

I read Ribsy and Henry Huggins to Asher this summer as an introduction to chapter books. When I told him that we were going to see Henry and Ribsy in Portland, he was very excited! Unfortunately, I forgot to explain that Henry and Ribsy were bronze statues in a water monument dedicated to Beverly Cleary at Grant Park (BC grew up in Portland and many of her books are set there). Asher forgave me, and we had a fun day seeing the statues, playing in the water and exploring the park.
