How I Spent My...Two Weeks In Portland- Part One

We got back last Wednesday night at 1 AM after almost two full weeks in Portland.  Tice still has a lot of clients there which is why we visit so frequently.  We stayed at a VRBO on Hayden Island which had two bedrooms, a nice kitchen, a huge closet (which is where Kinley slept!), and a central location that was easy for us to get anywhere as long as traffic on I-5 wasn't a nightmare.
Tradition- Getting In-N-Out everytime on our way through SLC
Watching the Ipad on our LONG car ride
A playdate/BBQ with great friends!
Breakfast at one of our favorite spots in all of Portland, Gravy on Mississippi
Playing at the Portland Children's Museum with his friends Emma and Henry

Breakfast before heading out to Willamette Valley for a day full of wine tasting- Believe it or not this was the first time I ever had macaroons and they were AMAZING!
After  a day full of shopping and wine tasting we treated Sawyer to half of mommy's blizzard
Since our VRBO was on the 4th floor and the kids were frequently falling asleep in the car due to all of our adventures I would have to bust out the stroller to get them up stairs.  And yes, Sawyer would stay asleep through the whole process!
