Weekend in Portland

So, yeah, I've been a very bad blogger, I go through these spurts sometimes when I just don't feel like blogging, and this last week has been one of those. Bear with me.

Jesse, Hunter, and I had a wonderful couple of days in Portland a couple of weekends ago. The weather was amazing!!

We hit the road early on Friday morning so that we could get down there in time for a 10am appointment to get our new canopy put on the truck. I'm really glad we got a canopy, it will be really useful for transporting the dog, Jesse's hunting gear, and to be able to keep things dry in the Seattle rain. While Jesse waited for it to get installed, I took a little walk and found a place to get a manicure. :)

From there, we headed to the Oregon Zoo! We had a pretty good time. But, I have to admit, I don't think I am much of a zoo person. It always seems like a great idea to me to go to the zoo, but once I am there, not so much. Oh well, I think Hunter had a good time seeing the sun bears and the elephants.

After the zoo, we went drove downtown and checked into our hotel. We tried to get Hunter to take a nap... with no luck at all. So, then we headed out. We walked around downtown for a bit and then had dinner at our favorite place... Buffalo Wild Wings! Mmmmm.

Hunter was pretty tired, so we did what all great parents do, we ordered him his first sugar loaded shirley temple. (sense the sarcasm?) Oh boy, did he love it. He was drinking it so fast that we decided that we needed to dillute it with water. While he was busy consuming hundreds of grams of sugar, Jesse and I indulged ourselves, with boneless wings. Jesse is all about the caribbean jerk, but I swear the mango habenero is the way to go!!

The next morning, we woke up to Hunter in our face, yes, he had crawled out of the pack n' play and made his way to us! We got ready and then headed downstairs and had some yummy breakfast. We love the Hilton breakfasts! :)

Then we decided to spend the day at Oaks Park, it's an amusement park down on the Willamette River, it was so much fun!!!

We got there about an hour before the park opened, so we spent that time walking on the beach, skipping rocks on the water, and then walking back through the woods.

After our nice walk, we headed to the rides!! Hunter LOVED them!
