Portland for his birthday.

Here is my artsy Portland pic. My new haircut has a nice artsy vibe for photos. 🙂

It was fun to get away for the day. We ate too much and walked all over… as we usually do in Portland.

Holiday in the big city.


We snuck off to Portland to take in a Blazer’s game. They were playing the Heat and guess what hotel the Heat stayed at? Ours! Needless to say the family basketball fans were excited. My oldest and I are not fans and we didn’t go to the game, we were forced to eat good food and shop downtown to pass the time. 😉


Dude had never had a frappacino so we had to get him one… I think they wrote Don, but they called out Ron. It’s name roulette!! 🙂


City fun with excited kids… Does it get any better?! 🙂


Apparently today I wasn’t Don… but Duvon… hmmm… 😉


Made it with enough time for a quick ice cream moment!

Portland getaway.

Aside from the fact that we were here over the weekend, it still nice to get away and hang out in the big city. Lots of relaxing and good food. Of course we went out to Ruth’s Chris one night, and for lunch one day we found a new restaurant, Andina, that was super yummy!

Fried food festival?

We went to the carnival and ate too much crap! My youngest rode some of the rides but #1 and I walked around and found lots of fried food to sample…
