I got home yesterday but was way too exhausted to blog. Sooo! Here are some pics .

So this is just us driving into Portland. I live in a really small town so going to bigger cities is always exciting.

This was my first experience with a parking meter! I was successful in using it!

 Our bed! It was huge!

This is our hotel we stayed in the second night. It was pretty nice except for the $4 they wanted for water...

Just us taking pics of ourselves in the elevator.

We didn't eat here but the truck was pretty and we saw that their tacos are really pink! You can follow them on facebook :)
 This was the best Chinese food we have ever eaten!
 I took my food back to the hotel only to realize we had no silver ware or chopsticks luckily we had two coffee stirring sticks. I used them as chopsticks
I look depressed but I was really enjoying my food.
 This was the clear woman we saw at OMSI a science museum. You could light up different parts of her body can you tell which part we lit up?
 This is a dinosaur print
I looooved seeing this! Its a giant ear!!!

This is the parking lot we could see from our window.  As you can see cars are always blocked in. The guy who managed the lot would move cars as needed. We also saw a fight happen near this parking lot.

We went to Voodoo doughnuts. I got a traditional chocolate doughnut and it was really good.
 My husband got the famous Voodoo doughnut

It was a fun trip but I was glad to be home. I am sooo sick of driving in cars though! And this Thursday I am driving up to Beaverton which is near Portland to see my 2nd favorite author James Rollins. My best friend is driving though which makes car trips a little more bearable.
Oh and here is a pic of the weather on the way home good thing we left when we did.
