Eastcoast meets the Westcoast!

{I told you I was going to do some crazy posting...and here goes! This time around I'm going to post-date them so that they actually reflect the dates that we were in Portland...works better that way when I'm trying to put together a blog book in chronological order!}

I forgot to take pics of Cutie Face during our two plane rides but they really were uneventful (thankfully!). When we arrived in Portland, our bags came quickly (yay!) and we were off to the T-Met (Portland's public transportation).

Cutie Face loved riding the train and looking out the windows:







One of the perks of J's job is that he incurs thousands of travel points. We had enough points to stay at the Westin for FREE! YAY!

Cutie Face LOVED the king sized bed and the pillows. If she had it her way, we'd be the ones sleeping in the crib:



We set her up at the business desk to eat some broccoli and avocado.
Delish:



Then we were off to hit the town!

Yes, we brought our baby jogger. It is such a great stroller!


After walking around for quite a bit, we realized it was 8:00 EST and we were starving! So we stopped in for Sushi happy hour (its good to have east coast timing--you can hit all the happy hours and be legitimately hungry!).



Cutie Face LOVED the rice and the edamame. Everything else was blech to her but delicious to us!



Wiped out from our travels, we headed back to the hotel early, threw the kiddo in bed, and enjoyed a decent night sleep...until we all woke up at 4AM!

it looks like you guys had so much fun! Those parks are amazing! I love the one with the square fountain thing. That looks perfect for kids to play in!
