Oregon trip Pt. 2

Finally getting around to sharing the second half of our Oregon trip! With only 13 days until school starts and one more little mini vacation to go, along with planning a first birthday party, oh, and taking care of a house, husband and three kids, I've been sort of busy!

So here we go!

This sweet polar bear was doing a little dance for everyone. He was shaking his head while he'd take a few steps forward. And then shake his head and take a few steps back. And he did this multiple times.

I love, love, love elephants. They are my favorite animal to roam the planet and I always watch them in awe when I see them at the zoo. As you can see, this little guy enjoyed watching them as well!

We're just hanging out waiting for the bird show to start. This was a big step for me as I have myself a little bird phobia. It's taken a lot of years to get to the point of watching birds for enjoyment.

The giraffes are another favorite of mine, and Tyler also really enjoyed them! We hung around in hopes that one would come up closer but no such luck.

Summer wasn't really impressed with the zoo. I sure didn't expect her to be, but she was crabby most of the day. She didn't want to be in her stroller, and she didn't want to see me unless I was holding her. So most of the time I either walked in front of Travis so she couldn't see me, or else I carried her. It was tiring, but she didn't want to sleep either. Finally when we left and were walking to the car she crashed in my arms. Little stinker finally passed out after about 5 hours at the zoo!

On our last day before heading out of Portland, this was my last request. I wanted to go to VooDoo Doughnut so bad to see what the hype was about. The maple bar with bacon has been talked about for a long time and I wanted a go at it! The verdict? It was delicious!

And our last scheduled stop was Multnomah Falls. If you've followed my blog for very long you already know that I stop here every time I drive by. It always looks the same as the last time, but it's too beautiful to pass up. Plus, it was Summer's first time!

Another great trip in the books! The Oregon Coast and Multnomah Falls is probably one of my favorite places I've ever been. Can't wait to get back there!

  1. Love seeing pictures of my hometown. How long was the line at Voodoo? Or did you act like a local and go to the one in NE? Oregon looks just as beautiful as I remember!

  2. We went to the one on 3rd and the line wasn't long when we got in it, probably 20 people in front of us, but it was huge by the time we left!
    I just love it there! :)
