This weekend we finally returned to Portland! We had a really amazing time, just editing these pictures made me miss it already. If everything goes right, we should be back early next year! So keep sending us recommendations on things to do and things to eat.
Day 1! On Saturday, Jackie and I woke up early to catch our flight. We took Southwest, and while boarding we started to freak out a little bit. We didn't know our seat numbers after handing over our boarding passes. It turns out this flight had open seating like a bus. I never flew like that, but it wasn't that bad. We did have to sit apart on the flight home since it was packed like a sardine can.
Day 2! We all headed out to Pine State for an early breakfast. My stomach was kicking, so I went light with a biscuit BLT. Pine State has really great biscuits, so you can't go wrong with anything on a biscuit there.
After breakfast the group split up. Six of them went on some huge 6 mile hike in each direction. The remaining four didn't know that they were about to take on the food challenge of a lifetime. We ate at a total of 15 different spots, and traversed almost 7 miles.
Day 3! I was still so full from the day before. But it was time to eat again. We went to a place called Screen Door. This place was amazing! I'm kind of bummed that I went so light on breakfast there.
