The Beaver State

Oh sweet Oregon! How I miss you!
We had so much fun! With minimal set-backs which will be discussed, our trip was fantastic. It was the perfect balance of sight seeing, relaxation, a little splurging and outdoor bliss. We had a great time spending time as a family and exploring new territory. I am not really sure the best way to document our trip. The travel log style, although fun for me to read, seems daunting to me. I think I am going to post the pictures and ramble about them as I go. Yep. That is what I am doing. Here I go!

Farmers Market in Portland. There was so much good food here it was insane! We had an artichoke and cheese tamale, lamb pita, golden raspberries, blackberries, tiny apples, cucumbers, carrots, melon, blueberries and homemade chips. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Lily had fruit all over her. People were commenting on her face and shirt swimming in blackberries while she chomps down on a half a cucumber in one hand and a fistfull of golden raspberries in the other. I think she could have been the market poster child. It was so cute.

Dang it! I still can't get the pictures to stay rotated unless I export each pic. I am way to lazy to do that so I guess we can all just rotate our heads. Lily sure enjoyed the sites and sounds of the big city. She thinks every building of four or more stories in "mama doctor" because my doctor has his office in one of only three tall buildings in Maui.

Chris at Voodoo donuts. See previous post for the 'splanation of this one.
