Rose City

We went to the OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) expecting to be intellectually stimulated with history of the city and science. This expectation might have come in part from my current reading of Bill Bryson's A Short History of Almost Everything. This is my second read of this awesome book. Really, if you love history or science or just a great story telling then this is the book for you. Anyway, at the OMSI we discovered it was more of a children's museum. We were pleasantly surprised by how many fun things for kids there were. Really, the whole museum is geared for school age kids. There is a huge room for preschoolers that Lily could have lived in. She had so so so much fun.

This guy had ONE HAND and he could play! This was at the portland saturday market. I thought it was going to be a farmers market again (even though Chris told me we have been to this market before so I should have known) it was more arts and crafts. I was disappointed but we did buy some really amazing batik reproductions from a local artist. That was a good find.

"rock a baby" . All concerts should be outside and should have rocking chairs available.
