Our trip to Portland was SO great! I have a fantastic mother in law who lives in a fantastic place. While there, we were able to go to the Children's Museum, the coast, the Portland Saturday Market, the Columbia River Gorge, trips to the park, and lots of family time. Here are a few things I love about the City of Roses.

Life grows on life. the trees have moss on them and it looks like fairies could live everywhere.
People are environmentally minded. Here, we are the only people in our circle who recycle. There, you're strange if you don't- there's a different state of mind.
Interesting fashion.
People are all about health food and locally grown food. There is a huge selection of places to go to find these things.
There are lots of different kinds of beauty. The waterfalls at the gorge are beautiful, the coast is breathtaking. Mount Hood is one of the most interesting mountains I've ever seen. There are lots of luscious gardens in the city as well.
Great thrift stores.
It produced my main squeeze.
The family we have there is wonderful.

Here's a look at our time.

It looks like you had a good time. I have some jealousy though, I miss seeing those cuties!
