What I am reminiscing about?? My Portland trip ….that just comes to tell you…is that we are so in need of a VACATION around here in my house. Today, I will recap a few things about Portland that I just LOVE. I am so glad that I got a chance to visit Portland Oregon!! Honestly, I would have never picked this state or city to vacation with my family. But NOW…..I think my kids would love it out there..the state is beautiful!!

I left my house at 5:00 am on Thursday …without kids or husband. My first trip ever without my kids!!! We had a layover in Vegas so we call grabbed a bite to eat at the airport at this Mexican restaurant.

We were so hungry and so we stopped by this cute sushi restaurant that had an OUTDOOR sitting area. The city is so CLEAN!! We stayed in the Pearl District. They have bikes all over the area that you can rent to ride around (you can see it in the picture below)
