A few weeks ago, my brother Joe and his girlfriend Stephanie came for a visit!!! For their first day, we thought we would have a Portland Fun Day.
|We all got in the Japanese Garden for FREE thanks to the|
library's pass (yay!).
|walking to the garden|
|The whole place is SO SO beautiful, just amazing how much|
thought is put into planning a Japanese garden, just to make
it look natural.
|This is one of the rare moments that Sedric was not running.|
|We had fun with the seek-and-find.|
After the Japanese Garden and then the Rose Garden (the one with the rose bushes, not the basketballs) (roses not in bloom of course, but nice to walk around and see the Portland Skyline) we made our way to NW 23rd and Little Big Burger.
|This was the whole reason why I wanted to go|
to Portland on THURSDAY and not FRIDAY!
(no meat Fridays during Lent)
|Then next door to Salt & Straw.|
|A stop at New Seasons--the beer section was a hit.|
|On our way home with fresh groceries for|
homemade pizza night!
