The snow melted--and just in time. We've had a weekend getaway to Portland planned for a few months, and were hoping/praying for clear roads.
Aaron's been hankering (yes, hankering) to see Jimmer Ferdette play some basketball in the pros, and since Seattle doesn't have a pro team anymore (sniff, sniff), the Portland Trailblazers are the closest we can get. We stayed over night at a hotel downtown (thank you, Hotwire). The kids loved swimming in the pool Monday morning.
We had a great day eating at some fun restaurants, shopping a little and doing some fun things for the kids. Aaron and the kids went to the game with his brother and our nephew, and Lucy and I went to Target (a pitiful lack of imagination, I know) and picked them up when it was over.
All in all, a great little mini getaway. And I've got the pictures to prove it :).

We ate breakfast at Tasty and Sons. The food was scrumptious. I forgot to take pictures of it because I was too busy eating...
gorgeous cushions. I think Sarah from Modern Country Style has one in her dining room. I may have to shamelessly copy this style and make one for our family room.
Ann Sacks tile and saw this display. Both of us love it. Miracle! I'm not sure if this color scheme is the one we will go with, but at least this is progress. Woo hoo!
Hot Lips Pizza and couldn't resist an opportunity to ham it up.
Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Sawyer had a great time with this pulley and in the water engineering area (as you can tell from his shirt).
Over and out,
