Memorial Day Memories

This year, for Memorial Day, we had the good fortune to spend time in downtown Portland, OR with some great friends. After scoring a good deal on a hotel room at the Westin Portland, plans were set in motion to drive down to Oregon and explore for the weekend. Lennie and I took a leisurely Saturday drive, enjoying the I-5 scenery and a relatively sunny day. It felt very freeing to get out of town, even if it was only a few hours down the road.

Once we got to the hotel, we parked the car and didn't get back in until we made our way home two days later. It was great to walk around the city to see the sights! A few of the highlights include:
Here's some of my favorite photos from the weekend:

World's Smallest Park -- Lennie's shoe is almost the whole length! :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed spending time in Portland with our friends, and look forward to visiting the city again soon!
