When we got to Portland I posted on Facebook asking for advice on things to do.

Almost every reply involved food!

Walking Portland OR

So we headed to downtown in search of the food trucks.

Powells Bookstore Portland OR

But first we had to stop at Powell’s. Priorities!

Line at Voodoo Doughnuts Portland OR

After grabbing lunch at a food truck we headed to Voodoo Doughnuts but none of us were willing to wait in that line.

Brothers Salt and Straw Ice Cream OR

That’s okay because after dinner we went to Salt and Straw to get our sugar fix with some handmade ice cream.

Farmers Market Damascus OR

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.

Sunset Camping Portland Oregon

And a night eating in really isn’t so bad when you are with the one you love.

Airplain OMSI Brent OR

Airplane Omsi OR

There is more to Portland than food. There is science!

OMSI Museum Portland OR

The boys had a fun afternoon exploring the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, OMSI.

Jenn Rola Portland OR

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.
Friends at Voodoo Doughnuts ORFortunately, 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.
