The drive to Portland was really nice. The best part about drive NORTH on I5 from California, is that it gets prettier the farther you go. Oregon is a beautiful state, I’m really going to dislike the drive back home (view wise that is, otherwise, I’ll be ready :) ).
We had timed it really well, we left right before Owen was ready for a nap. He slept most of the way, and then we kept him busy with a bottle and toys. When we arrived out today’s destination, Portland Children’s Museum, he was ready to get out of the car.
Michele’s brother, Charles, and his family also came along
This place was really cool, for both kids and Michele and I. This is sums up nicely why I liked the place so much:
There were a lot of cool things for all of us to play with, like ambulances
doctors offices (I felt right at home)
You can tune a file system, but you cannot tune a fish
And best of all, I got my first Bear picture (not polar though)
