Mother’s Day

For Mother’s Day we went to downtown Portland and went to the Rose Gardens (which are beautiful!) and then down to the Saturday market that is also open Sunday. I thought that was sorta funny.

Tons of pictures comin’ your way….

Felt really wierd to be making cinnamon rolls early in the morning…but I said I would do them and so I had to. I would have liked to have had a crazy breakfast in bed…but we woke up kinda late and had to get going for the day.

They were amazing! I will always add dried cherries instead of raisins to my rolls. Sooo good.

It was such a beautiful day! I could not have asked for it to be more perfect. There was a moment when I was looking around, seeing Trav and Emma playing/exploring together, felt the sun and I thought…’this is a perfect moment’. I want to always remember those times.

Another perfect moment captured on film…or I mean on our memory card. (that phrase just doesn’t sound as good) This is a favorite picture of mine…thanks Trav for taking it. I love snuggling/tickling her.

I relly hope that she has a mischievousness about her. It would be cool to see that part pasted down. But do I really know what I’m hoping for? Probably not.

The arch was so beautiful and amazing. It was huge!!!!

They have this really cool amphitheater and there were tons of families there having picnics. We joined them. Emma liked people watching and watching the other kids going crazy. She just cared to take her shoes on and off. She’s a little shoe obsessed.

This look is priceless. I am so happy to got it on the camera. 🙂

Like I said earlier we went to the Portland Saturday Market after that.

The inner princess in me wanted him to make me a crown that was pink and purple. I could always say it was for Emma…

We ended up eating Hawaiian food. And thus feeding my obsession with Hawaii even more. I NEED to go. And soon, I don’t think I’ll ever live closer than I am now.

Moving to Europe and all, I think a lot about their culture and traditions. So when I saw these archs and then the date I laughed and took a picture. So old huh. 😉

And that was yesterday. Or at least a few hours of it. I was able to pick up a few things at the market and will take pictures/post of them today. We went to a BBQ after the downtown adventure (which they had amazing steaks! Thanks Corey!) and then saw a movie and hung out with Trav. Just the two of us, it was nice. And today I’m finishing with getting a mani. 🙂 Yay! What a treat, I never get them.

Hope you enjoy your Monday. peace out.

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
