Portland Trip

David and I took a trip up to Portland this last weekend. It was great to get away for a couple of days. We got to see Kelly and Brandon for a bit. Brandon's graduation was this weekend. We didn't get to see them a whole lot because his grandparents were in town for his graduation, but we'll see them this week because they are coming down to visit us. David is taking Tuesday evening and Wednesday off this week.

David and I had a wonderful time shopping with our Old Navy gift cards we got from MyPoints. We had fun spending those plus some birthday money I got. We haven't bought clothes in a while and I've recently shrunk out of a lot of my clothes, so we really enjoyed it. We also had dinner at the Kennedy School McMinamins. We give it 10/10 for atmosphere. The food was great too. We wanted to see a movie there, but their internet schedule was not accurate so we missed the movie we wanted to see. It was so relaxing to have dinner out in the courtyard. The weather was perfect. We sat on cast-iron chairs at a lovely bistro table amidst many overgrown plants that cover what used to be a courtyard playground. There is a tile-covered fireplace in the center and lots of random art pieces throughout the premises. What a lovely place to spend an evening! We are definitely going back.

Sunday we had a great brunch at the John's Street Cafe. The guy who seated us was kind of rude, but the waitress was nice and the food was delicious. We ended up spending the afternoon looking (for the Apple store and looking) at iMacs. We had reserved tickets to see Spiderman 3 at the Imax theater in Tigard, so we left Portland to get there a little early. That was good because we had trouble finding the theater and Dave thought it started at 4:30, but it actually started at 4. The show was sold out and we got in line at just the right time. We got great seats and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The drive home seemed really short and we were both wound-up from the exciting weekend.

It was great to get away for a couple days. We had so much fun together!
