As some of you might know, my family and I recently moved back to Oregon this summer — in July 2012, to be exact. We lived in Portland a few years ago (our son was born here), and then moved back to Alabama where most of our family is. Since we both fell in love with the city pretty hard the first time around, my husband and I decided to move back to Portland, and… here we are!
We’ve been trying to take advantage of the free time we do have, so in between work, school, and general life stuff the three of us (well, four, since we usually bring our dog along) have been exploring various places all within an hour or two of Portland. Naturally we visited Cannon Beach pretty early upon arriving, and have also traversed the great Tillamook Cheese Factory and much of Oceanside. We’re not too picky — we even went to a combine tractor rally last summer!
We have also discovered that Portland is prone to offering you its own little adventures — there are so many fantastic parks in the city that have little nooks just waiting to be visited! We’ve spent a lot of time at various points on the waterfront, and are really starting to form a concrete relationship with the city we now call home.
Since I get to know the couples I’m lucky enough to work with pretty well, I thought it would be fun to share a few of our photos — here we go!
What other places should we check out!? Let me know!
