vacation bender, day 1

my mom (martha) came into town last wednesday night to hang out with lee and i. i do not think we stopped moving or eating the entire time.

thursday morning we headed to milwaukie (oregon) to pick up my prize gift basket from the dave’s killer bread store.

between the 3 of us, we sampled everything they make.

we went across the street to check out the bob’s red mill whole grain store.

it’s a retail store, restaurant and mill.
we then went to crush it at pine state biscuits.  not as good as the first time lee and i went but still good.
lee then had to head to work, miserably full. heh.
martha and i head to the omsi museum (oregon museum of science and industry).
i’ve wanted to go since i moved here but haven’t gotten around to it.
we wandered around the new “identity” exhibit.  i took 2 photos before i was told they weren’t allowed.

they also have a lot of kids stuff and space stuff.

and an earthquake simulator. a little too real for me. i lived in california after all.
we then went to see the hubble imax movie.  one word:  stunning.
prior to dindin, we went to the chart house restaurant for cocktails. it’s known for amazing views of portland. we partook in happy hour with one of lee’s classmates, aubrey. love her.
since it was lee’s birthday, we went to her favorite restaurant for dinner, andina. a delicious peruvian restaurant in the pearl.
it is now my favorite restaurant. damn that food was good.
so were the drinks.
here’s lee on the long drunk walk back to the car.
happy birthday sissy.
