When we got to Portland I posted on Facebook asking for advice on things to do.
Almost every reply involved food!
So we headed to downtown in search of the food trucks.
But first we had to stop at Powell’s. Priorities!
After grabbing lunch at a food truck we headed to Voodoo Doughnuts but none of us were willing to wait in that line.
That’s okay because after dinner we went to Salt and Straw to get our sugar fix with some handmade ice cream.
We would have loved to eat our way through Portland but we live on a budget so a trip to a farmers market was in order.
And a night eating in really isn’t so bad when you are with the one you love.
There is more to Portland than food. There is science!
The boys had a fun afternoon exploring the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, OMSI.
While the boys went to OMSI, I caught up with my friend Rola. Rola and I used to hang out with our babies almost 12 years ago. It had been that long since we had seen each other.
Fortunately, it hadn’t been quite that long since we hung out with some special friends, Greg and Michelle, and their kids.
It is such a joy to hang out with old friends when it feel like it was just yesterday you hung out even though it has been a few years.
It’s also fun to finally get to try Voodoo Doughnuts in the company of good friends without having to wait in line all day.
While we were out and about why not go to Por Qué No?
We finished the night laughing and goofy off with Greg and Michelle at their house.
Fun times playing in Portland.
Love and Laughter,
