Photos from the Peninsula Park (& Community Center) Centennial Celebration!

As promised, I want to share some photos from the Peninsula Park Centennial Celebration that was held here in Portland (Oregon) yesterday, June 27. These are in no particular order, simply because it's so difficult (!!!) to use LiveJournal's Scrapbook feature and ever attempt to keep things that way you intended them to be uploaded. But I'll try to caption them all, at least a little bit.

Without further ado, PHOTO SHARE!!!

The quality might leave something to be desired, as I took these with my iPad (which used to have decent quality, but has gotten worse with updates over time -- I can't imagine why Apple would make the quality worse, can you? hahahahahahaha...).

NOTE: Clicking on a photo will take you to the larger version of the image.
